Purdue has recently restructured into two major administrative units reporting to the Provost—Undergraduate Academic Affairs and Student Life. Student Life is focused on the personal, professional and intellectual growth of Purdue students. We in Residential Life view our communities as "living learning laboratories" and as such are seeking Residence Education Coordinators - educators who are committed to teaching and embody the concept of being a "life-long learner”.

Residence Education Coordinators (RECs) are responsible for developing strong residential communities; forming relationships with individual students; coaching and supervising student staff; implementing area-specific residential curriculum plans, facilitating educational opportunities including student conduct meetings and student leadership experiences, communicating with parents and other stakeholders, and organizing opening and closing processes. Residence Education Coordinators create and promote a learning centered, nurturing residential community, and must be willing to work a flexible schedule, including evenings and weekends.
Qualifications & Requirements

Other key knowledge, skills and abilities:
Experience working in a residence life setting with demonstrated knowledge of student development. Commitment to student learning. Experience collaborating with academic faculty. Working knowledge of curriculum development. Proven record of collaborative programmatic efforts. The chosen candidate must also have a high level of competence in interpersonal and intercultural relations and a proven ability to work with individuals from different viewpoints and backgrounds.

A review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. For full consideration, please apply online at http://purdue.taleo.net/careersection/wl/jobdetail.ftl?lang=en&job=1701309
