The Impact Entrepreneurship Initiative (IEI) is a new university-wide initiative that grows out of two popular co-curricular offerings at The New School: New Challenge, launched in 2011, and Parsons E-Lab, launched in 2014. The IEI supports students in developing the entrepreneurial mindsets, skills, and sense of purpose needed to thrive in our rapidly changing world and aims to catalyze the creation of a more inclusive economy by making entrepreneurship education, resources, and networks more accessible to students from diverse backgrounds at different stages of the entrepreneurial journey.

In our hiring process, we strive to build a team that reflects the diversity of those we serve and provide students with a significant learning experience that allows them to further develop their knowledge and skills. The scope of this position and level of responsibility are broader and more substantial than many other student positions at The New School. We expect a lot from our team, in terms of commitment, responsibility, and quality of work, and give a lot in return. Student Research Assistants will have an opportunity to network widely, both within and beyond The New School, and receive ongoing mentorship. Previous Project Research Assistants have made significant professional contributions in this role.

The Project Research Assistant will work closely with the IEI leadership team to help design, publicize, and implement various components of the Impact Entrepreneurship Initiative, including the Graduate Fellowship and Venture Lab. In this role, the Project Research Assistant will assist in developing, promoting, and managing events and play a key role in managing the IEIs digital presence across websites, blogs, social media, and electronic communications. Specific responsibilities will be based on the candidates skills and may include the following:

  • Develop and produce promotional materials (print and digital), including posters, electronic fliers, presentations, and visual content

  • Manage the IEI listserv (MailChimp) and curate/draft content for monthly E-newsletters

  • Promote the Graduate Fellowship to prospective applicants to The New School via external partners, key influencers, etc (develop and implement webinars, etc)
    Create, update, and maintain Excel databases to support marketing and outreach efforts

  • Help draft communications publicizing various aspects of the IEI to internal audiences

  • Produce/curate content summarizing IEI events and publicizing the work of students/alumni

  • Help draft periodic reports and foundation proposals to funders as necessary

Stakeholder Engagement and Management:
