FAYETTE, Mo. – The job of site coordinator for Central Methodist University’s branch site in the Union area is roughly equal parts “educator” and “business manager.” In Tim Willard, CMU believes it struck the proper balance between the two.
Willard, a Union resident who has taught for CMU for over a decade, starts his new position April 1. CMU-Union operates from the East Central College (ECC) campus and enrolls approximately 170 students, according to Dr. Rita Gulstad, CMU Provost.
“I think many times we get caught up in seeing things as they are instead of what they could be,” Willard said. “CMU-Union is now a great place to get a degree, but it will be a life changing university opening up the dreams of students not yet envisioned.”
CMU’s site coordinator runs the day-to-day operations of the branch at ECC. They must market CMU degree programs, build and develop partnerships, supervise and support faculty, and advise students among other tasks.
