Academic Operations Coordinator
About the Opportunity
Founded in 2014, the College of Engineering’s Michael J. and Ann Sherman Center for Engineering Entrepreneurship Education strives to be an inclusive entrepreneurship community providing personalized experiential-learning to NU innovators. This donor-funded and college-supported center provides formal course instruction, an undergraduate minor, early-stage venture-founder support, a unique venture co-op and a variety of student and/or community-led events and initiatives for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

As a student development-focused team member of this vibrant organization, the Academic Operations Coordinator oversees the safe and effective academic operations of all center programs and spaces. This includes interfacing with faculty and students daily, and possessing the necessary logistical and institutional knowledge to support the execution of our academic minor, courses and certificates. Additionally, this team member possesses the necessary technical knowledge to provide training, guidance and oversight of fabrication equipment use. This position will maintain the necessary relationships with college space planning and EH&S personnel to ensure Sherman spaces provide the highest level of safety to its students. This position provides technical and programmatic support and coaching to Sherman student-groups, and is also an active participant and leader for our community-wide DE&I efforts. Finally, this position will develop their knowledge of university curriculum, academic best-practices, and build and curate relationships with key stakeholders within curriculum and course-related college and university committees.
To assist in these efforts, the Academic Operations Coordinator may oversee a co-op student, several work-study positions and student volunteers to support the day-to-day needs of the Sherman Center.
