The office of the Dean of the College is seeking a strong candidate to serve as the inaugural Director of the Presidential Scholars Program (PSP). The Director will play a leading role in the creation, implementation, and management of a new, national doctoral pipeline program which will provide an intensive enrichment experience for non-Princeton college students. Princeton plans to welcome its first cohort of scholars in the fall of 2019.

Reporting to the Dean of the College and a faculty director, the director will work collaboratively with the PSP Faculty Advisory Committee as well as colleagues in the Office of the Dean of the College, the Graduate School, and the Provost's office. The director will also engage faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students who will mentor and advise program participants. In the first few years, the director will have the opportunity to hire staff to support this program.



Provide leadership and vision to translate the mission and goals of the PSP into a functioning program. Identify, develop, and maintain partnerships with institutions to co-create integrated and cohesive programs for coordinated advising and resources between other institutions and Princeton. Develop a national strategy to identify promising scholars. Represent PSP within the University and in the broader graduate education inclusion and access community locally and nationally. Serve as a thought leader on scholarly diversity and bring national visibility to the program.


Oversee the recruitment, application, and selection of scholars for admission to the program. Recruit and engage faculty and other instructional and research staff and collaborate with faculty members on curricular design in the context of the program's mission. Develop and maintain strong relationships with faculty members, post-docs, graduate students, and academic departments to provide support for scholars.


Coordinate academic support and non-academic support in partnership with the Office of Undergraduate Research, the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, Princeton Writing Program, University Health Services, Office of International Programs, the Pace Center for Civic Engagement, and other campus offices. Collaborate with colleagues running programs for success, inclusion, and opportunity in the Office of the Dean of the College, and diversity and inclusion programs in the Graduate School to deliver co-curricular programming, mentoring, and academic advising services during the summer and academic year.

Program Management:

Oversee all logistics and operations of the program. Hire and supervise professional staff, manage a budget, and supervise the maintenance of the PSP website and promotional materials. Develop and implement methods for program evaluation and assessment.


Engage with donors in support of the program. Engage directly with program participants and with their families.


Position Requires:

  • Demonstrated commitment to the value of diversity and inclusion in higher education. Experience in the recruitment, retention, and support of students from historically underrepresented communities and lower socioeconomic backgrounds is critical.

  • Demonstrated experience in creating or leading complex initiatives with a variety of constituents and stakeholders, especially collaborations between and across multiple organizations/institutions.
