Posted 3 weeks ago

The Student Care Coordinator is part of the Office of Student Care Coordination (OSCC) in the Office of the Dean of Students at Vanderbilt University and is a key individual contributor responsible for collaborating with students who may have an academic, personal, emotional, medical, and/or other concern. Student Care Coordinators individually assess each student's needs and explore resources within Vanderbilt's Student Care Network and/or the Nashville community to facilitate connections to the most appropriate support. Reporting directly to the Student Care Manager, the Student Care Coordinator's work requires regular contact with students and their parents, faculty, senior administration, campus partner staff, and the public.

The Student Care Coordinator will conduct intake assessments and follow up meetings with students that take into account unique aspects of identity to determine appropriate treatment plans and help coordinate support services. The Student Care Coordinator will assist students in accessing on and off-campus resources, planning and setting goals related to their care, continuing with the appropriate level of care, as needed, and/or re-entering the University after a medical leave of absence. Additionally, this position will assist with outreach and education for the campus community (students, staff, and faculty) regarding identification and intervention for students of concern and assist in the development of a network of community providers to supplement on campus services.

The Office of Student Care Coordination fosters wellbeing and success by identifying concerns and coordinating support for students facing life events that may interfere with their academic and personal goals using a proactive, collaborative, and student-centered approach. Our team of Student Care Coordinators is the central and first point of contact for students to help identify needs and determine the most appropriate resources in Vanderbilt's Student Care Network and in the Nashville community to address concerns. Student Care Coordinators collaborate with students to develop a student success plan, share education about and facilitate connections to appropriate on and off-campus resources, and provide accountability through supportive follow up meetings. Student Care Coordinators work closely with campus partners, including the Center for Student Wellbeing, the University Counseling Center, the Student Health Center, the Office of Housing and Residential Education, and faculty and staff to help maintain the safety and health of Vanderbilt students.

Vanderbilt University leadership has identified diversity, equity, inclusion, and mental health as top priorities for the institution and by extension the offices of the Dean of Students. Candidates must be able to articulate and demonstrate excellence and continued growth in knowledge, awareness, skills, and experience engaging with these priorities in a higher education environment.
