Title: Assistant Academic Coordinator/Director of Enhanced Academic Program
Years at NSU: 1
Job description: I help oversee the academics for the sports of softball, volleyball, women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, and men’s and women’s track and field to ensure that the student-athletes are in compliance with NCAA eligibility standards. As the Director of the Enhanced Academic Program, I meet with “at risk” student-athletes weekly to discuss classwork, set up with tutoring and teach study skills that help them reach their goals academically.
Why I like working at Northwestern State: Northwestern State is an awesome place to work because of the atmosphere created within the university. Not only are we able to compete at the highest level in college athletics, but we first and foremost provide our students a great education. The faculty and staff genuinely care about the students and are easy to work with which creates a “family-like” atmosphere that I know makes for an overall great college experience.
