The School of Global Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (SGLLC) invites applications for an Administrative Support Coordinator to assist in managing a broad range of complex administrative activities and operations of the combined unit. The SGLLC is comprised of five academic departments (Department of Asian Studies; Department of Comparative Literature; Department of French and Francophone Studies; Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures; Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese); with additional centers, programs and institutes. Primary responsibilities include: managing assigned budgets and serving as the proxy to the Administrative Operations Manager for overall budget administration; coordinating hiring actions of part-time faculty and providing backup support for international employment issues and faculty personnel actions, including promotion and tenure; and departmental support such as coordinating and supporting various events and conferences and managing visitor travel arrangements. This position is expected to provide primary support for the Director of the School of Global Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, and for the head of the Department of Comparative Literature and may provide support for the Summer Language Institute and related grant-funded programs. Serves as a liaison to various University and College offices to ensure policies and procedures are being followed. May include some supervision of wage or other employees. Typically requires an Associate's degree or higher plus three years of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience. Experience with academic support, budget management, and familiarity with University policies and procedures and University systems (such as Workday, IBIS, LionPath, iTwo, FIT, eSteward) are preferred but not required. The position requires the ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, excellent written and oral communication and interpersonal skills, and proficiency in MS Office. Candidates should be able to work without immediate supervision. Ideal candidates will have initiative and problem-solving skills and be ambitious, imaginative, and willing to work independently, while still being an integral part of a larger team, and to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for diverse members of the public as well as students, staff, and colleagues within the University. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire with excellent possibility of re-funding.
