Applications are being accepted for a full-time Coordinator for Student Athlete Success. As an essential position in the newly created Student Success Center, the Coordinator for Student Athlete Success works with student athletes and former student athletes to help them find academic and co-curricular success, ultimately tied to student retention and persistence. The coordinator works closely with athletic staff to support students who are working on fully experiencing their academic and co-curricular experience, while also balancing their athletic opportunities. The coordinator provides direct academic support to student athletes. The coordinator also helps student-athletes who may transition away from their college athletic experience. This is a full-time, twelve-month appointment.

Because Cornell College values diversity and strives to create a welcoming community in which all individuals are respected and included, the entire campus community is called upon to engage in dialogue around issues of difference, identity, and ideology. The college is committed to fostering a faculty and staff community that reflects our diverse student body. We encourage applications from candidates who share our vision for a campus that embraces differing backgrounds, viewpoints, and identities, and who will excel at mentoring students who are broadly diverse.
