Job Summary: This newly created leadership role is an exceptional opportunity for an innovative leader to coordinate and support high-impact experiential learning. In November of 2017, the Roosevelt University Undergraduate Council and University Senate approved a revision to the University's general education, now referred to as the CORE.

The Director of Experiential Learning (EL) will work with the provost's office, university colleges, individual faculty, and other university personnel to build community partnerships and successfully implement these new CORE requirements for EL courses. The Director of EL supervises the Professional Mentoring Coordinator, a graduate assistant and works closely with the Assistant Provost for Core Curriculum and Assessment, the directors of Career Development, Academic Advising, in addition to faculty and students, to assure available opportunities for students to complete their experiential learning course requirements.
