What is an Operations Coordinator? Operations Coordinators (OCs) are part of our Institute Operations Team, which is a group of ops-minded staff responsible for the design, set up, and execution of all institute logistics. This team provides the infrastructure needed to deliver outstanding instruction to ~5,000 summer school students whom our corps members in-training teach. While OCs aren’t in the classroom, their work has a direct impact on the quality of our institute and corps members’ training experience. We accept over 200 undergraduate students to our OC staff in the summer.
