Assistant Program Coordinator(s)
Assistant Program Coordinators (APCs) cultivate administrative and professional experience through their regular duties, which include consultant support, coordinating with other administrators, event planning and/or participation, developing and administering assessment surveys, contributing to the UWC Annual Report, and attending staff meetings. APCs also collaboratively head semesterly staff trainings, such as planning Orientation and Continuing Training events.
