Under the direction of the Dean and in close interaction with faculty in the College, the Student Relations Coordinator (SRC) serves as a University expert for both students and faculty requiring knowledge of a complex body of practices, policies, and procedures in the areas of recruitment, retention, advising, academic policies, and student behavior.
The SRC provides support and implementation for college retention initiatives. The SRC has extensive, specialized knowledge of all academic programs within the College. This expertise includes: in-depth knowledge of Minnesota State policies/procedures, departmental policies/procedures, general education requirements, major requirements, graduation requirements, and undergraduate and graduate admissions requirements/procedures. Faculties regularly consult with and refer students to the SRC for both general education advising and graduation requirements within a certain major. The SRC is responsible for assisting students with late withdrawal requests, academic/registration petitions, and credit overload requests.
The SRC counsels students within the College to address individual student concerns, which are often highly sensitive and emotionally charged issues, providing appropriate referrals to campus resources. This person manages referrals and academic updates through the campus early alert system with the College and promotes usage of the early alert system with college faculty. The SRC develops and implements individual success plans for students who are on academic warning and probation, and provides recommendations to the Appeals Committee for students who are appealing a suspension.
The SRC regularly meets with prospective students and is instrumental in the transition from the point of interest to the date of enrollment. The SRC supports and is involved in College recruitment initiatives, and updates the college communication plan in collaboration with Admissions. The SRC is also involved in University recruitment events such as: Preview Days, National College Fair, New Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration, and various outreach events as appropriate.
