Director, Asian Student Center

Emory University invites inquiries, nominations and applications for three roles:
  • Director, Asian Student Center
  • Director, Centro Latinx
  • Director, Emory Black Student Union
Reporting directly to the associate dean of students, Dr. Ashley L. Brown , the three directors will serve as key members of the Belonging and Community Justice (BCJ) leadership team within the broader context of Emory Campus Life . Belonging and Community Justice is comprised of six identity spaces at Emory that serve as a hub of support for students to matriculate to and through the university and includes the Asian Student Center ; Centro Latinx ; the Emory Black Student Union (EBSU); Emory First , which includes first-generation low-and limited-income student programs such as 1915 Scholars and Emory QuestBridge; the Center for Women at Emory ; and LGBT Life . BCJ promotes dynamic and cohesive learning by creating space for individual, cultural, and communal development. Belonging and Community Justice's value of ensuring every student belongs and graduates is central to all programming, events, and initiatives within and across respective identity spaces.

The three new directors (along with the new director of Emory First - a role that will be posting soon via WittKieffer ) will work closely with the current director of the Center for Women at Emory, the director of LGBT Life and the associate dean of students to facilitate the advancement of the Emory's Student Flourishing initiative , a commitment to purposefully integrate key elements of the Emory student experience (academic experience; community and well-being, purpose and meaning; and professional pathways) to intentionally prepare students for a lifetime of service, impact, and meaning. Having recently moved into the Belonging and Community Justice Identity Spaces after a multi-million dollar renovation , the new directors will be charged with developing and driving forward a strategic vision for their respective areas. The directors will also develop the associated planning and implementation of programs promoting a university culture of inclusion where students can thrive. The directors will be interested in high-impact program development that prioritizes collaboration with students, staff, and faculty members; high levels of student advising that bolsters student agency, empowerment, and holistic development; the personal and professional development of their students and staff alike; and supporting development and external engagement that bolsters the BCJ area.

The directors of the respective identity spaces will be well-practiced in evidence-based student-centered program development, highly collaborative, and have at least five (5) years of progressive leadership experience working with students from diverse backgrounds. Strong supervisory experience with a goal of engaging and creating purposeful teams, the directors will have a deep understanding of the complexities and challenges in the daily lives of students and will be well-versed in national trends and the critical issues facing a broad range of identities, while applying this knowledge and expertise to the Emory context. The successful candidate will also have a master's degree in higher education administration or a related field as well as least two (2) years supervising full-time or part-time professional staff and student staff.
