Oregon State University
Extension and Engagement, Family and Community Health Program
Klamath Falls
Posted: 09/01/2023
FCH/SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator

Oregon State University Division of Extension and Engagement, Family and Community Health Program invites applications for a FCH/SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator position based at the OSU Extension Service Klamath County office in Klamath Falls, OR. This is a full-time, 12-month, professional faculty position. Salary will be commensurate with skills, education, and experience. The anticipated starting salary will be $61,600 – $68,000.

Program Mission
Extension FCH and the College of Health align toward a common vision of lifelong health and well-being for individuals, families, and communities in Oregon. This affiliation brings national distinction among land-grant universities and schools of public health because of the unique, built-in capacity for impactful outreach through Extension Service FCH. The FCH program integrates an interdisciplinary, public health focus on health and well-being equity across the lifespan, and human sciences research into community-related practice.

The primary focus of this position will be the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education (SNAP-Ed), a federally funded nutrition education and obesity prevention program targeting SNAP eligible audiences. SNAP-Ed provides evidence-based interventions including hands-on learner-centered direct education as well as community-based work related to policy, systems, and environmental change.

Purpose of the Position
The FCH-SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator is expected to provide overall leadership to the Extension FCH and SNAP-Ed programs in Klamath County. Specifically, the faculty member maintains a robust portfolio of programming related to statewide focus areas of public health and nutrition, food systems, physical activity, and health leadership. The Program Coordinator works collaboratively with peer educators and researchers to address regional and statewide issues. The specific areas of programming are determined in conjunction with representatives of local communities.

The FCH-SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator is considered to be a member of the team of Extension faculty and staff serving Klamath County and Tribal organizations. Collaborative work across disciplines, organizational units, and Extension programs areas is expected. Programming is done in collaboration with community partners, such as schools, farmers’ markets, food banks and pantries, and government and non-profit agencies. SNAP-Ed delivers nutrition and healthy lifestyle programming through educators working in community settings. Klamath County programs are delivered in both rural and urban communities.

In addition, this position will coordinate the Farm to School programs by facilitating activities of Klamath’s Farm to School and SNAP-Ed team through planning, implementation and evaluation. The goal of the position is to build capacity for remote and alternative delivery of education that integrates the principles of cooking, nutrition, gardening, agriculture and science in school and community settings. OSU Extension is a recognized leader in this work, providing nutrition education throughout the state, encouraging healthy eating and supporting local food producers. Programming is done in partnership with the Klamath City and County School Districts.

The specializations will be determined in consultation with the OSU Extension Family and Community Health Program Leader and the Southern Regional Director and will be complementary to those of other Extension faculty in the region or state.
