Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Oregon State University enthusiastically invites applications for a full-time, 12-month Coordinator of Indigenous Student Mental Health & Wellness. The primary purpose of this position is to support the success of Indigenous students (Indigenous to the Americas and Pacific Islands) at OSU through the provision of clinical services, consultation, outreach, programming, and advocacy.

Understanding the impact of racial trauma, anti-Indigeneity, Indigenous identity development including Two-Spirit and intersecting identities, intergenerational trauma, settler colonialism, and white supremacy culture will be critical to success in this position.
Salary and Benefits
The anticipated salary range starts in the mid-60s or higher depending on skill, education, and experience. CAPS is committed to offering a competitive and equitable salary to qualified candidates.
Included in the initial compensation package will be a stipend for moving-related expenses.
