|Functional Title||University Program Associate - Journey|
WGS Program Administrator
Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) is an interdisciplinary program in the College of Arts and Sciences. Founded in 1972, it is one of the oldest such programs in the country, and it supports three degree programs (a Bachelor’s, a Master’s, and a graduate certificate) that involve diverse faculty and students from across the university. WGS’s central focus is to explain how gender is produced within social institutions and how these institutions affect individual lives and to analyze the mutual constitution of gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, nationality, and religion. As an interdisciplinary program, it coordinates the teaching and service of a large and diverse group of faculty across campus. In 2016-17, the program will include 4 student workers in the core office, plus faculty directors of graduate and undergraduate programs, 2 tenure-stream faculty members, a full-time lecturer, a group of more than two dozen faculty members who serve on the Cross-Appointed Program Faculty (equivalent to voting faculty in departments), and almost 100 faculty affiliates (who participate in committees and programming).
WGS is currently seeking a Program Administrator who will play a key role in coordinating all these constituencies, managing the daily operation of the program, and reaching out to a diverse range of students, faculty, staff, and community members. The position involves overseeing a budget that is quite complex (including management of 6 non-state accounts), organizing and supervising the program office (including the student workers), maintaining all of the program’s databases and electronic systems (including updating the website), coordinating co-curricular programming, serving on the WGS Administrative Council, and acting as the everyday face of the program both within and outside the university (including with personnel in the offices of the College of Arts and Sciences, Student Affairs, the Honors College, the Office of University Advancement, and the offices of various departments, among others).
Position is an 11-month assignment, paid over a 12-month period.
Bachelor’s degree; or equivalent combination of training and experience. All degrees must be received from appropriately accredited institutions.
If no applicants apply who meet the required competency level and training & experience requirements, then management may consider other applicants. Salary would be determined based on competencies, equity, budget, and market considerations.
