Position Description

The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion, or the Center as known on campus, represents the importance and influence of equity and inclusive excellence in every aspect of the Carnegie Mellon student experience. We are a team oriented unit, with dual reporting lines to the Division of Student Affairs and the Vice Provost for Education, and affect the student experience by cultivating cultural engagement, fostering a sense of belonging, and challenging systems of privilege and oppression. We work to continuously support the success of historically underrepresented student populations through developing community, active mentorship, and personal empowerment; all while collaborating with students, staff, faculty, and alumni to develop creative programs designed to increase and advance individual and collective intercultural competency development.

We are seeking a creative and upbeat leader with a passion for inclusion and equity, and experience supporting students at the graduate and/or undergraduate level to join the team as an Assistant Director of Student Leadership and Intergroup Engagement. This is an excellent opportunity if you thrive in an interesting and relevant work environment. In this new role, you will be responsible for ensuring a comprehensive set of programs and initiatives crafted to raise awareness and educate the campus community, as well as provide opportunities to develop community and leadership competencies. Reporting to the Director of Student Programs and Engagement, you will also model and guide methods for productive dialogue and discourse in order to support efforts of building and implementing change.

Core responsibilities will include:
  • Providing opportunities to develop community and network across constituencies, such as Black Male Summit, and cross cultural and intergroup dialogue efforts;

  • Facilitating efforts to create competency and leadership development for equity and social justice, such as MLK Programming, Tartan Allies, and MOSAIC; 

  • Participating in the planning, budget management, data collection, and reporting of the overall vision of the Center; and

  • Supporting the general functions of the office via routine staff meetings, participation in campus events and signature programs, assisting with response and student support during critical incident moments on campus or in the broader global community, and assisting with business continuity planning and crisis management.

Flexibility, excellence, responsiveness, and compassion are vital qualities within the Center.  Diversity, equity and inclusion guide our values and serve as our foundation. We seek and cultivate diverse populations and perspectives. We do so because it is paramount to our commitment to having a culturally engaging campus environment for our students to thrive. Inclusion, collaboration and cultural competency are critical to academic excellence and innovation. Therefore, we are in search of a team member who is able to effectively interact with a varied population of internal and external partners at a high level of integrity. We are looking for someone who shares our values and who will support the mission of the university through their work.

You should demonstrate:
  • Strong understanding of contemporary diversity, equity, inclusion, multiculturalism concepts and issues, especially as they apply to climate and student experience;

  • Knowledge and command of LGBTQ+ community specific issues and experiences; 

  • Steadfast dedication to equity, justice, and inclusion; 

  • Success as it relates to creating and implementing innovative planning, programming, and community development;

  • Successful track record of leading projects in a multi-stakeholder environment and inspiring change;

  • Advanced interpersonal and intercultural communication skills; and

  • Capability to facilitate presentations and address large campus and community audiences.

Due to the nature of this work, you should be able and willing to work evening and weekend hours, as they may be required.
