Requisition Number: STFR003902

Division/College: Student Affairs

Location: Boston Main Campus

Full-time/Part-time: Full Time


The Center for Intercultural Engagement (CIE) at Northeastern University strives to create a community that is inclusive of all populations on campus. With a focus on exploring the connections within, between and across identity groups, the Center maintains a transformative and supportive environment by fostering a community that respects and values the perspective, contribution and experience of everyone at Northeastern. To lead this effort, the CIE seeks a Director with proven effectiveness and expertise in identity-based programming who lead the evolution of this Center.

Reporting to the Assistant Dean in the Division of Student Affairs, the Director is charged with the continued growth of the Center and will be responsible for articulating a strategic vision, identifying key priorities and partnerships that result in increased cultural competence for all of our students in addition to maintaining a space to explore the multitude of identities that make up our community. The Director will possess a multi-faceted approach to identity-based programming and will work in tandem with student leaders on the creation of a robust programming calendar that offers our community with opportunities to engage in dialogues around difference, receive trainings that are vital to creating constructive change and attend identity-based socials that bring together students with intersecting identities, among others.

To aid in the delivery of these critical programs and services, the Director will be responsible for overseeing all administrative aspects of the Center including but not limited to: fiscal oversight; supervision of full time staff and the student fellows; and spearheading a creative marketing/social media plan that is designed to reach students who capitalize on global experiences.


The Director must have 6-8 years of professional experience in higher education, preferably in areas closely related to identity exploration, inclusion or related discipline. Extensive knowledge of social justice, programming, student activism and diversity issues is a must with a proven record of change management in this area. The Director will be called upon to assist students experiencing difficult or triggering situations and will be expected to serve as a referral agent or advocate when these situations arise. The Director is expected to remain abreast of contemporary issues pertaining to diversity and inclusion in higher education and will utilize best practices in the industry - in concert with Northeastern student needs - to inform the development and responsiveness of our efforts here on campus.

The Director is expected to work several evenings and weekends per month in order to maintain high-quality programs.
