Program Coordinators in the Division of Student Affairs work closely with the Deans. Program Coordinators have programmatic, student support, and may have incident response responsibilities.

Programmatic responsibilities depend on the particular Program Coordinator's assignment, but might include program design, implementation, and/or support services related to the assigned program. Often UVa Student Affairs professionals are not managing programs themselves, but are supporting students in designing and implementing the programs. Programmatic activities include Student Activities, Public Service, Career Services, Housing & Residence Life, Orientation & New Student Programs, Multicultural Student Services and other programs supporting historically underserved students, Fraternity & Sorority Life, Prevention & Education, and Incident Response & Crisis Management.

Student support responsibilities include mentoring, training, and/or supervising student leaders and/or student workers, but also includes helping students solve problems and respond appropriately to challenges and/or crises. Through formal and informal interaction, student affairs professionals assist students to achieve their goals. These interactions may include responding to student walk-ins; responding to questions from parents, faculty or staff; or meeting with students who have interpersonal problems, policy violations, psychological issues, or other concerns in order to counsel, mediate resolutions, or set expectations for future behavior.

Finally, Program Coordinators may have responsibilities relating to the support for incident response and crisis management. These may include analyzing, synthesizing, and reporting case data; assistance with various clearance and criminal disclosure processes; assistance to the Deans with other administrative matters; support for the Associate Vice President and Liaison to the General Counsel; or other special projects and assignments as needed. PCs do not serve on the "Dean On-Call" rotation.
