Department Summary

The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is the hub of learning, research, and academic excellence at the University of Oregon. With nearly 50 departments and programs representing the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, the high quality of our programs is the main reason why the University of Oregon is one of only 66 top universities in the prestigious Association of American Universities. Our faculty and advisors work directly with students to help them think analytically, question critically, and communicate clearly about how to find solutions to real-world issues in the world we live in. Our staff and managers play critical and dynamic roles in supporting and advancing the academic mission of the University and of CAS.

CAS is organized into eight Academic Support Units (ASUs), each housing staff, managers, and an associate director, who provide undergraduate and graduate academic support, as well as faculty and operational support to the multiple academic departments and programs in CAS. ASU 8 includes the departments of Mathematics (MATH), Earth Sciences (ERTH), Computer Science (CS), and Data Science (DS).

Position Summary

The Undergraduate Program Coordinator supports undergraduate students within the assigned Academic Support Unit (ASU), and assists the Academic Programs Manager in administrative tasks and special projects, developing an in-depth knowledge and expertise to consistently coordinate and administer undergraduate program operations and special projects in assigned areas. This position is a primary, day-to-day point of contact for undergraduate majors, responsible for independently communicating with individuals and groups at all levels of the university to research and interpret information.

This position oversees and coordinates administration of the undergraduate programs within the assigned ASU. In assigned areas, the position will provide guidance to students and faculty related to curriculum, application requirements, academic planning and scheduling, and special programs. This position also assists the Academic Programs Manager and faculty with special projects as needed.

Special projects require independent research, analysis, review, and interpretation. The position may initiate and/or propose such projects and studies, or be assigned projects from Department Heads, Directors, or Academic Programs Manager. This position has responsibility for undertaking projects from set-up through completion and has near-exclusive control of many projects. Examples of projects include development and refinement of advising procedures, designing and publishing printed and online materials for recruitment purposes, and course schedule development.

This position reports directly to the Academic Program Manager and works on the Academic team within the ASU. Decisions likely to be made in this position include implementing departmental priorities, developing procedures, appropriately interpreting and applying established policies and procedures, and recommending appropriate actions regarding confidential issues such as curricular exceptions, petitions, transfer course articulation, and graduation.
