Under the supervision of the program director for the Chancellor’s Leadership Class (CLC) and UCCSlead, this position supports the development of student leaders through their participation in the leadership certificate program, UCCSlead, as well as their involvement in student leadership experiences on campus. Offered multiple times during the academic year, UCCSlead sessions are highly engaging, interactive, and inspiring--providing students an opportunity to discover who they are as leaders, while serving as a pathway for student involvement at UCCS. The program coordinator will support the program director in facilitating and coordinating these sessions. Additionally, supporting the implementation of assessment measures to gauge learning and effectiveness will be part of the job responsibilities. CLC is UCCS’s, four-year leadership development program.

The program coordinator will assist the program director with curricular components of CLC that are much like the UCCSlead program and will perform administrative, communication, event planning, and scholarship fundraising duties. These include but are not limited to CLC community advisory board outreach and development, donor cultivation, CLC scholar recruitment and selection, and alumni relationship building. This position will also be responsible for the strategic marketing and social media promotion of both CLC and UCCSlead and will regularly be expected to provide keen editing and proofreading expertise related to all communications, publications, agendas, and presentations.
