The identity of the University is framed by substantive commitment to a multilingual, multicultural, intellectual community which enables students, faculty and staff to cross institutional boundaries for innovative instruction, broadly defined scholarly and creative activity, and coordinated community service.

Program Summary:

CSUMB's computer science and information technology degree program is introducing a new pathway to a bachelor's degree that will take students three years, instead of the typical 4+ years. The program is cohort- based, accepting ~30 students each year. The first cohort of students will begin the program in fall 2013 and will graduate in spring 2016. CSIT-In-3 is a collaborative program that involves a close-knit partnership between California State University Monterey Bay and Hartnell College, a local 2-year institution. It is the goal of CSIT-In-3 that any participant who embraces high-expectations, has a tenacious work ethic, and commits to the cohort learning community, upon graduation, will be well-prepared to compete with graduates from any of the nation's top 10 computer science programs for opportunities in the industry or academia.

Position Summary:

The Academic Coordinator will guide, monitor, and support students' academic progress as they move through the program. This person's primary focus will be ensuring all cohort members are on track to maintain good standing in the program, to graduate, and to compete for opportunities in the industry or in academia. The Academic Coordinator's responsibilities will include assessing student levels upon entering the program, working with students and faculty from both institutions to monitor progress, designing and implementing interventions and supplemental projects to enhance academic learning, and measuring outcomes. The Academic Coordinator should be able to think beyond the traditional boundaries of institutions, courses, and semesters to develop an innovative and high quality computer science education model that leverages the cohort to educate students. The Academic Coordinator also will play an integral role in ensuring alignment and coherence between the CSIT-In- 3 pathway and the traditional computer science and information technology degree program offered by the school, while making significant contributions to an innovative educational model that addresses various challenges including the high cost of college education, broadening participation in computing, and incorporation of 21st century skills in higher education.
