The Center for Inclusive Excellence elevates, celebrates, and supports the diverse faculty and staff of San Diego State through professional learning, community building, advocacy, policy recommendations, and organizational structures. We aim to foster an affirming campus culture based on the core values of excellence, equity, diversity, belonging, and inclusion through the recruitment of faculty and staff who are reflective of the diverse students and communities served by SDSU; fostering an environment of inclusion for faculty and staff from underrepresented groups; enhancing the career pathways of faculty and staff from underrepresented groups, and cultivating relationships with the local community that advance the well-being of diverse individuals and communities.

Under the general supervision of the Associate Vice President for Faculty and Staff Diversity (AVPFSD) and with a dotted line report to the Director of Resource Management for Student Affairs and Campus Diversity, the Administrative Coordinator will support the implementation of policies, procedures, programs, and initiatives that serve all faculty and staff.

On occasion, weekend and evening work may be necessary.

The Administrative Coordinator will provide logistical and organizational support for professional learning events and activities through creating and coordinating registrations, organizing materials and handouts, managing event calendars, and processing paperwork for event expenditures. The Administrative Coordinator functions as the primary financial and budgetary resource through the production of financial reports, the coordination of department payroll activities, the coordination of department travel approval and reimbursement processes, the management of university accounts payable, procurement acquisition, and the management of budgets for paperwork with SDSU Foundation.
