Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) seeks an experienced, proactive Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion to serve the School and University in their mission to build and sustain an inclusive environment. The Associate Dean of SEAS will lead the development of a vision and strategy and accompanying initiatives to fulfill this mission and ensure a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community among students and faculty at all levels.

The School of Engineering and Applied Science, with six degree-granting departments, brings together people from across academic disciplines; from industry, non-profits, and government; from all nations; and from all backgrounds. The collaborative culture of the School enables scientific breakthroughs that address a range of society's pressing needs, including problems related to energy and the environment, health, security, and preparing leaders in the 21st century. As a world-class engineering school in the heart of a liberal arts university, SEAS is driven by an ethic of service and teaching.


Reporting to the Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, this newly-created role of Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion reflects SEAS' deep commitment to Princeton's institutional movement toward greater diversity and inclusion. The Associate Dean will plan, implement, and continually assess and refine the School's efforts to diversify by partnering with a range of constituencies to increase access, retention, and success of historically underrepresented and marginalized populations. This work will extend across the SEAS educational pipeline: from undergraduate and graduate students, to postdoctoral fellows and faculty, and will include racial and ethnic minorities, women, LGBT, first-generation students, students with disabilities, and others.

The School of Engineering and Applied Science seeks a creative change agent with a track record of success facilitating and leading strategies and activities to recruit and retain a diverse complement of students and faculty. This is a unique opportunity to facilitate transformative advancements in SEAS' intellectual community. Through gaining an understanding of the culture, being proactive in messaging, leveraging resources, and engaging faculty in the process, the Associate Dean will be well-positioned to identify, attract, and retain talent from all over the world.


The successful candidate for this Associate Dean opportunity will bring a deep commitment to and experience developing a strategy to advance ambitious diversity and inclusion goals. S/he will also demonstrate a proven ability to work effectively with students, faculty, and leadership to ensure a diverse and inclusive community.

Substantial relevant experience (ideally at least 5-7 years) and an advanced degree are required; a PhD is preferred. The ideal candidate will hold a bachelor's or advanced degree in a STEM discipline, but candidates with significant work experience in a STEM field will also be considered.

VIEW JOBS 11/22/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-02-20T00:00 The Director of Programs in the Office of the Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion will join a newly created unit within Boston University focused on aligning the University's stated values regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion to its policies, practices, structures, climate, and culture. The Director will play an essential role in helping to develop institutional programs that promote a culture of inclusion, intellectual capaciousness, mutual respect, and civility. As a member of a newly created team, the Director will have the opportunity to develop a diverse slate of programs for faculty, staff, and students, and to work in collaboration with key stakeholders across the institution (ex: The Hub, academic departments—especially in relation to the University Scholars programs, schools and colleges, the HTC, the Gotlieb Archives, Initiative on Cities, Build LAB, etc.) and within the city to create an exciting, expansive, and farsighted group of programs that are in accord with BU's founding principles and redoubled commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Director of Programs will be responsible for creating dynamic, programming that will focus on and exalt the public exploration of challenging ideas and catalyzing stronger communities among BU's broad range of constituents. These mutually reinforcing goals will help BU students, staff, and faculty to develop enhanced methods of engaging across difference. In order to holistically embed programs across the University, the Director will need to be deeply steeped and expert in one or multiple U.S centered historical and theoretical frameworks related to equity, diversity, and inclusion work, and will preferably be able to expand that viewpoint to include global issues of inclusion and diversity. Drawing on humanistic and/or social science thought and research, the Director will envision, create, and implement a dynamic series of programs that tackle and address issues related gender, race, social class, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, political ideology, age, disability, justice, among others. Examples of traditional programs in the DEI space include: University reads, speaker's series, general education-related co-curricular educational opportunities, seed grant programs, breaking bread-like programs, etc. The Director should be familiar with industry best practices and ineffective practices and guide BU's programming initiative accordingly. Ideally, the Director of Programs will have new, integrative ideas that might help Boston University draw on its location and history. To that end: The Director of Programs will collaborate widely with constituents across the University and over time, also be able to work with local stakeholders to enact an overall programming strategy. The initiatives and programs emanating from BU's office of the Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion should be expansive, creative, intellectually sound, interdisciplinary, outcomes-oriented, and tethered to research, best practices, and will be robustly assessed for efficacy. Because of the nature of this position, the Director will necessarily be excited by the ability to create an entirely new range of programs. And, the successful candidate will be not only a maker, but also someone who enjoys maintaining, building, revising, and deepening programs over time. This is a start-up initiative and will require a range of skills, including the ability to multi-task, to develop an effective implementation strategy in a lean-administrative unit, and the willingness to take on large and small tasks in service of the larger goal, and provide intellectual and programmatic leadership as appropriate. The Director must be diplomatic, strategic, highly organized, creative and tactical, visionary, relational, and, have excellent event planning skills. The Director should also have the ability to assess the efficacy of programs and be able to work with institutional research to develop longitudinal assessment. Under the leadership of the University's senior diversity officer, the Director will partner with key stakeholders across the University to ensure that the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Boston University is creating impactful, measurable organizational change. To that, the successful candidate will understand the ways in which large, institutional programs can and catalyze institutional change. Additional responsibilities will include drafting and/or editing written communications; overseeing all logistics to do with programs at the University; and overseeing a small staff of student workers. The Director will be a key strategic partner in this ongoing work of developing organizational capacity for Diversity and Inclusion and for creating and monitoring assessment mechanisms. The Director will work as part of a team of individuals within the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of the Provost, and across the CRC and MED campuses. And the Director will partner with multiple additional offices, including Human Resources, Schools/Colleges, and administrative units as appropriate. To that end, the Director will provide leadership and serve as a strategic partner to not only a broad range of leaders within other units, but also diversity and inclusion practitioners embedded in the schools/colleges. Required Skills * Master's Degree from an accredited institution. * Significant intellectual training in a proximate disciplinary area * 6+ years of relevant work experience. * Strong programming experience * Experience leading and managing diversity, equity, and inclusion programs, preferably in a university setting. * Superb written and spoken communication skills. * Strong presentation skills. * Strong program design skills.

We ask that you please submit a letter of interest with your application and substantively, either in the letter of interest or in a separate statement, articulate the ways in which you are aligned to the University's commitment to becoming a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable institution as reflected in the University's Diversity Statement.
