as identifying and growing appropriate services for USG’s population of
regional transfer and graduate students in these fields. The incumbent must
possess a familiarity with teaching strategies, both for one-on-one and
large and small group interventions, which actively engage students in the
learning process and promote long-term learning. In particular,
