ABOUT UC SANTA CRUZ
UC Santa Cruz is a public university like no other in California, combining the experience of a small, liberal arts college with the depth and rigor of a major research university. It's known as an unconventional place where innovation and experimentation is part of the campus's DNA. That playful, bold spirit still thrives today, all on a campus renowned as among the most beautiful in the world.
The Division of Global Engagement (GE) advances the University's teaching, research, and service mission by working collaboratively throughout the institution to promote global engagement and advance campus internationalization by facilitating international mobility for students and faculty. GE serves as the primary unit responsible for improving the international student experience and engagement on campus, promoting faculty engagement in international initiatives, and developing strategic partnerships abroad. GE interacts with campus leadership on strategic planning and initiatives to elevate the reputation of UCSC globally. GE units include Global Learning, International Student and Scholar Services, Global Programs, and Global initiatives.
The Faculty Led Coordinator and Advisor reports to the Global Learning Director and uses skills as a seasoned, experienced study abroad professional to provide the full range of student services to students seeking acceptance to a study abroad and away program and manages a portfolio of faculty-led programs. Independently advises students and resolves student service-related issues on the full range of academic, cultural, and logistical issues inherent within any study abroad or away program. The incumbent recommends solutions to program requirement issues. Advice may include not-clearly-defined programs such as independent study programs, interdisciplinary programs, or multiple programs. Works independently under general supervision. Advises faculty and management on a variety of student issues related to Global Learning programs. Recommends changes to policies, practices, and procedures within the context of UCSC Global Learning programs.
UCSC Global Learning programs, such as faculty-led, student exchange, and internships are growing rapidly and are a priority for the Division and campus. Although this position will primarily focus on advising for faculty-led programs, the incumbent may also advise students on the full range of Global Learning program opportunities, academic criteria, and other requirements to participate in programs. The incumbent will develop in-depth knowledge of our current portfolio of 15-20 faculty-led programs, in addition to general knowledge of all Global Learning program options. They will maintain general knowledge of campus academic departments, schools and colleges, and major and degree requirements to match a student's interests, academic/linguistic/cultural preparation, and goals to the appropriate program. Advisers are expected to participate in general and program-specific student recruitment, to lead program development admissions, pre-departure preparation, health and safety requirements, and re-entry activities for students for program portfolios.
Advisers participate in divisional initiatives and contribute to improving work processes within Global Engagement to achieve the divisional goals and objectives. As UCSC continues to develop relationships with institutions overseas, advisers work directly with faculty, campus departments, and international partners in the development of these opportunities and provide administrative oversight.
Advisers are expected to demonstrate leadership and advanced problem-solving skills when addressing issues, and to assist with training and mentoring less experienced team members. Under general supervision, advisers work independently with regard to time management, program portfolio oversight, and student advising caseload to meet office and program deadlines.
