The Buntain College of Nursing (BCON) and the College of Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS) Online Academic Program Coordinator oversees curriculum development and evaluation, conducts student advising, leads faculty acquisition, and coordinates program improvement for the academic programs offered by the BCON that are delivered by CAPS. Currently, this includes programs offered through Online Campus.
The Online Academic Program Coordinator is a full-time BCON faculty appointment eligible for tenure and promotion. The BCON dean oversees the Coordinator’s professional development as a faculty member, teaching in the BCON, curriculum development work, and faculty acquisition. The Coordinator reports directly to the CAPS dean or appropriate CAPS director regarding day-to-day management of the CAPS program, including teaching and advising assignments, course assessment, faculty assessment and development, and regular faculty assignment to courses.

Faculty contracts are usually issued on a 12-month basis by the Provost, at the discretion of both deans and Provost.
