The project builds upon the work created in the first CALI grant cycle which offers a year-long program of study consisting of online training modules, a Practical Application Week, induction programming, and communities of practice. CALI also offers stand-alone resources for interpreter professional development. The Project Coordinator will work closely with the Director and co-PIs, and with the program evaluator, developing and implementing evaluation tools for trainings and resources, analyzing data, and reporting on findings. The Project Coordinator will also be responsible for managing and coordinating the project's training activities, developing and maintaining the website, and supervising administrative staff and work-study students.
