The University of Virginia's Division of Student Affairs is expanding its team and is looking for a Program Coordinator (PC) in the Office of the Dean of Students, Multicultural Student Services (LGBTQ+ services) and a Program Coordinator in the Office of the Dean of Students/Housing & Residence Life, Orientation & New Student Programs. Program Coordinators work closely with the Deans and Directors in the Division of Student Affairs in several different capacities including programmatic, student support, and potential incident response.
Programmatic responsibilities depend on the particular PC’s assignment, but generally include program design, implementation, and/or support services related to the assigned program. Often, UVA Student Affairs professionals are not managing programs themselves, but are supporting students in designing and implementing the programs. Programmatic activities include Career Services, Fraternity & Sorority Life, Housing & Residence Life, Incident Response & Crisis Management, Multicultural Student Services and other programs supporting historically underserved students, Orientation & New Student Programs, and Public Service Student Activities.
Student Support Responsibilities
Student support responsibilities include mentoring, training, and/or supervising student leaders; helping students solve problems; and responding appropriately to challenges and/or crises. Through formal and informal interaction, student affairs professionals assist students in achieving their goals. These interactions include responding to questions from parents, faculty, or staff and meeting with students who have interpersonal problems, policy violations, psychological issues, or other concerns in order to counsel, mediate resolutions, or set expectations for future behavior.
Incident Response and Crisis Management
PCs may also have responsibilities relating to incident response and crisis management. These may include analyzing, synthesizing, and reporting case data; assisting with various clearance and criminal disclosure processes; assisting Deans or other senior leadership with administrative matters; or completing special projects and assignments as needed. PCs do not serve on the “Dean On-Call” rotation.
