In this full-time position you will deliver high quality, student-centered experiences to retain students, including proactive outreach, tailored programming that aligns with the SCAD mission and value statements, and coordination with various student-oriented departments. You will work with a caseload of around 400­–500 students, assigned by major, prior to their matriculation through orientation activities, including Summer Swarm. You will then build relationships with students through the First Year Experience course and continue to monitor each student’s progress through ongoing contact and early alert programming until graduation.
