The College is seeking to attract ethnically diverse instructors and staff who can inspire our increasingly diverse student population.

Therefore, we seek applicants who demonstrate they understand the benefits of diversity in a higher education community. Consideration will be given to equity-minded individuals committed to collaborating with faculty, staff, administration, students, and community partners who are also committed to closing equity gaps.

POSITION SUMMARY

The Gateway to College (GtC) Program Coordinator will work to design, implement, and sustain the national GtC Program at NWTC. This leader will carry the vision of student success to the reality of student achievement by providing participating high school students with the opportunity to earn a high school diploma while transitioning to a college campus and earning college credit. NWTC is committing to a one-year planning for implementation of the GtC Program in the Fall semester of 2022. The timing of this program development and launch seeks to serve an increased number of disengaged students because of the interruption of traditional high school education due to the pandemic.

The Program Coordinator works in partnership with school district, college leaders, staff and faculty, community organizations and the project funder, the Gateway to College National Network through Achieving the Dream (AtD). This role will coordinate a collaborative team of stakeholders and moves the program from grant supported start-up to locally managed sustainability. This position requires the ability to quickly learn and implement the essential elements of the program model to meet specific program goals while addressing a broad range of complex issues associated with a program start-up.
