Job Description

Virginia Tech
Dedicated to its motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), Virginia Tech pushes the boundaries of knowledge by taking a hands-on, transdisciplinary approach to preparing scholars to be leaders and problem-solvers. A comprehensive land-grant institution that enhances the quality of life in Virginia and throughout the world, Virginia Tech is an inclusive community dedicated to knowledge, discovery, and creativity. The university offers more than 280 majors to a diverse enrollment of more than 36,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in eight undergraduate colleges, a school of medicine, a veterinary medicine college, Graduate School, and Honors College.

The Division of Student Affairs Aspirations for Student Learning serves as a framework for our roles as educators as we work alongside students to encapsulate their learning in an understanding of their strengths so they may: commit to unwavering curiosity; pursue self-understanding and integrity; practice civility; prepare for a life of courageous leadership; and ultimately, as noted above, embrace a life of Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).

It is our hope that we will always measure our success by the success of our students. To that end, we will do whatever it takes to bridge the gaps that often inhibit thriving, flourishing, and wellbeing. Moreover, we pay significant attention to those within the Virginia Tech student experience that feel marginalized and isolated. Student success hinges upon each person being able to bring their whole selves into our community and believing that they are welcome here.

The Coordinator for New Student and Family Programs reports to the associate director and works collaboratively with students, faculty, staff, and community partners to manage programming for special populations at Virginia Tech (Low SES, underrepresented minorities, international students, transfer students, and veteran students).
