These colleagues include other Coordinators for Case Management and Administration, a Coordinator for ExperienceVT, a Coordinator for Well-being, and an embedded counselor from Cook Counseling. Working with this team and others, the Coordinator fosters a cohesive, holistic, and supportive residential experience.
The Coordinator also provides student support through mentoring, referral to resources, incident response, on-call duties, and other duties, as assigned.
The Coordinator for Case Management and Administration also supports administrative functions for Housing Services that support well-being in the residential environment. These include facilitating room changes, providing oversight for student arrivals and departures, monitoring environmental health and safety, etc.
