The Role of the Program Coordinator

The program coordinator and students will have many interactions while enrolled. They will be communicating important dates, deadlines and details to students in order to insure they have all the information needed to successfully engage in the program.

Program Coordinators are here to respond to questions and concerns, and to help develop solutions for success in this program. In the event that they don’t know the answer to a question, they can still put students in touch with the right office or person. They will be the first point of contact throughout a students time at USD, so it is encouraged to keep their email and phone number handy.
