Johns Hopkins University invites nominations and applications for the position of Executive Director of the Center for Social Concern (CSC). President Ronald J. Daniels is committed to making civic engagement a pillar of the undergraduate student experience at JHU, and the Executive Director will play a crucial role in executing this vision. In this newly elevated and highly visible role, the Executive Director will provide the vision and leadership to further enrich the CSC’s student engagement programs by deepening its connections with community groups, foundation leaders, alumni, and other constituents. In addition, the Executive Director will ensure that the CSC’s civic engagement initiatives are connected to the academic mission of the University, including partnering with faculty interested in providing community-based learning courses and/or offering civic engagement experiences. Responsible for managing a staff of ten and a budget in excess of $1.5 million dollars, the Executive Director reports to the Dean of Academic and Student Services and serves as part of the leadership team within the division of Homewood Student Affairs.
The CSC was created in the early 1990’s as the community engagement center for the Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus, which is home to the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering. Today the CSC hosts a number of high-profile and high-impact programs. The most prominent, the Tutorial Project, connects JHU student tutors with Baltimore City youth to provide help with reading, writing, and self-esteem skills. Additionally, the Community Impact Internship Program (CIIP), funds summer internships for 50 JHU students with community organizations. In the 2015-2016 academic year, student groups logged over 140,000 service hours through the CSC.
Johns Hopkins University is one of the premier teaching and research universities in the world, dedicated to advancing both students’ knowledge and the state of human knowledge through excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship. Incorporated in 1867 as America’s first research university, students today are challenged not just to learn, but also to advance learning itself.
The ideal candidate will bring experience in fostering new institutional relationships, marshalling networks, change management, and strategic planning, as well as a firm grounding in campus civic engagement initiatives, with a particular emphasis on undergraduates. A master’s degree is required; and an advanced degree would be highly desirable. Please send nominations, applications, and queries in confidence and electronically before June 25 to:
