Position Description

Bowdoin College seeks a full-time assistant director of THRIVE. THRIVE is a college-wide initiative designed to foster achievement, belonging, mentorship, and transition among low-income students, first-generation-to-college students, and students of color.

The Assistant Director will work closely with students in THRIVE and will specifically oversee two programs, and play a significant role in running a third program, under the THRIVE umbrella: Peer Mentoring, Chamberlain Scholars and the Geoffrey Canada Scholars program—a four-year cohort program which includes a Summer Institute for incoming first-year students. Oversight of these programs entails the following tasks: creating and supervising year-round educational and recreational programming (workshops and coursework on campus and off-site activities), hiring and training peer mentors, promoting, reviewing and documenting funding opportunities for students, and serving as an informal advisor to students. The AD will collaborate in these efforts with staff across campus, especially those in Student Affairs.


Job Requirements

• Bachelor’s degree required.
• Ability to create and design programming based on the goals of THRIVE.
• Knowledge of the needs of these student populations, especially men of color and first-gen men.
• Familiarity with an asset-based framework for responsive and creative problem-solving.
• Strong public speaking and writing skills.
• Ability to maintain confidentiality.
• Fluency in the Microsoft 365 suite and willingness to quickly learn new applications and software.

• 2+ years of full-time work experience.
• Experience in college access, college persistence, and/or higher education strongly preferred.
