Position Description:
The Foundation's Postsecondary Success Department focuses on supporting high-need individuals across Oregon and Siskiyou County to better their lives, and the lives of their families through education beyond high school. A key component of this strategy is our scholarship programs which support nearly 1,000 students from diverse backgrounds (rural, non-traditional, underrepresented groups, etc.).

The Student Engagement Coordinator is supervised by the Student Success Counselor and is primarily responsible for the development and implementation of engagement strategies supporting current Scholars. The position develops and implements strategies based on internal and external research, ranging from interventions that serve the broader scholarship community to those targeting priority populations identified by the Foundation. The Student Engagement Coordinator will work with the Student Success Counselor and other members of the team supporting student success to implement a holistic approach to student well-being. In addition to work focused on increasing student engagement in the areas identified, the position will also provide individual counseling, educational advice, support, and encouragement to scholarship recipients. This position is a critical part of the team ensuring the Foundation’s programs support students’ smooth transition to and through college. The position also engages in other activities related to the selection and support of scholarship recipients as needed.

This position is located at the Foundation’s scholarship office in Eugene and is required to occasionally travel and work outside normal business hours, including some evenings and weekends.

This is an exempt position, and the annual salary is $75,000.00. Our excellent benefit package includes paid time off and holidays, health and dental insurance, health savings account, generous retirement plan, matching gifts program, access to an employee assistance program, professional development opportunities, rejuvenation leave and more.
