University of Notre Dame - Student Engagement Program Coordinator

Are you interested in advising undergraduates as they pursue research, other forms of experiential learning, and applications for major national fellowships? Are you an effective communicator who is adept at offering workshops and providing written feedback on applications for grants and fellowships? Do you want to work in a close-knit, student-centered environment that aims to help undergraduates do good in the world through scholarly engagement?

If your answer to these questions is “yes,” then we encourage you to apply to become the Student Engagement Program Coordinator in the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE). Previous advising experience is preferred, though we are happy to train someone who has the appropriate skillset.

The Program Coordinator will have three major responsibilities: (1) Collaborate with the director of CUSE to administer a portfolio of national fellowships. This will involve refining and implementing recruitment strategies to reach these populations, intensive advising and application feedback, and administering internal endorsement, nomination, or evaluation procedures. (2) Collaborate with the CUSE team on scholarly engagement advising. This will include workshop presentations on getting started in research and how to secure grant funding. It will also include one-on-one advising with students to provide feedback on grants proposals and to discuss how to pursue their research interests. (3) Collaborate with the Assistant Director for Student Engagement to coordinate efforts related to data analysis, marketing, and communication for CUSE.

The Program Coordinator will also collaborate with the rest of the CUSE team on Center-wide efforts, such as the Sorin Scholars honors program.

The anticipated start date for the position is February 3, 2020, though earlier or later start dates will be considered. Funding is available through CUSE for professional development through the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA), the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), and the National Association of Fellowship Advisors (NAFA).
