Track Coordinator Position Description and Expectations
The Gehring Academy Track Coordinators are vital to the success of the Donald D. Gehring Academy. They have responsibility for the oversight of a specific track or session within the Gehring Academy and work in collaboration with designated faculty members to create and present the content for the track.
Academy participants consistently cite the quality and approachability of our Track Coordinators and Faculty Members as a primary reason they attend the Academy and are satisfied with their experience. This year’s Academy planning team, as is our tradition, will select inclusive, respected student conduct and legal professionals to represent the best of our field and Association. The work we do at the Academy shapes the future skill-base, quality, and direction of student conduct as well as the organization as a whole. We appreciate your contribution made on behalf of the Association, the students, and campus communities impacted by our work.
