The Administrative Program Coordinator will work closely with the Director of Pre-College, the Events Program Coordinator, and the Staff Development Program Coordinator to implement the residential component of Emory’s Pre-College program. Thus, the Administrative Coordinator will collaborate with Emory students and staff members from multiple departments within the Division of Campus Life and the Emory College of Arts and Science to ensure the needs of Pre-College participants are met.

About Emory University:


Emory University is recognized internationally as an inquiry-driven, ethically engaged, and diverse community whose members work collaboratively for positive transformation in the world through courageous leadership in teaching, research, scholarship, health care, and social action. The University consists of an outstanding liberal arts college, highly ranked professional schools, and one of the largest and more comprehensive healthcare systems in the Southeast.

Emory is enriched by the legacy and energy of Atlanta, whose downtown is located 15 minutes away. There are 13,400 students enrolled at Emory, about half pursuing undergraduate degrees in the liberal arts, nursing, or business and the rest enrolled in graduate and professional programs. A palpable sense of community and social connection exists on campus; and because of Emory’s size, students are nurtured in a way not possible at larger institutions.

Emory has a long tradition of emphasizing fine teaching. It is the most ethnically and religiously diverse university of the top 20 national research universities and is the only one that remains religiously chartered. Emory was founded by the Methodist Church in 1836 at Oxford, Georgia, where Oxford College of Emory still operates.
