Office of Student Inclusion & Involvement Program Coordinator

The OSII Academic Support & Program Coordinator is a vital role on the Office of Student Inclusion and Involvement Leadership Team. Under the leadership of the Assistant Director of Student Inclusion and Involvement, the OSII Academic Support & Program Coordinator is responsible for the leadership and coordination of the Multicultural Student Achievement Program (MSAP). 

The Multicultural Student Achievement Program (MSAP) serves traditionally underrepresented students (students of color, LGBTQ+, low-income, first-generation, and undocumented students) at Edgewood College through academic, social, cultural, and leadership support. MSAP’s ultimate goals are to assist traditionally underrepresented students with their transition into college and to aid in their retention and ultimately their graduation from Edgewood College.

The Multicultural Student Achievement Program (MSAP) provides students with academic support, including bi-weekly study tables and access to tutors in various subject areas. This program encourages co-curricular enrichment through monthly workshops to promote self-advocacy, leadership development and civic engagement in students. In addition, we work to cultivate community engagement through monthly dinners and social events to help students feel supported to thrive during their time at Edgewood College.

Additional job functions will include constituency-based support, advocacy, and outreach to underrepresented students and attending OSII sponsored major events and programs.

This is a 12-month position; evening and weekend hours are required, depending on programs and events.
