Under the direction of the Director of Education Abroad and the Assistant Vice President for Global Affairs, coordinates and manages the day-to-day administrative activities and provides program support for the State of Connecticut and the State of Baden-Wurttemberg Exchange Program, and serves as an Education Abroad Advisor.
This position is intended to serve dual functions: administrative support as well as graduate and undergraduate level program support. The focus of the job is on coordinating the day-to-day administrative activities of the Connecticut and Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany Exchange Program as well as Education Abroad Advisor. Incumbents are expected to work with a fair amount of independence, but within the goals and objectives established by the Director of Education Abroad and Assistant Vice President for Global Affairs.

Academic decisions, program direction and policy decisions, however, rest with the supervisors.
