Tracking Code6803 Job Description

The Director of Programs in Boston University Diversity & Inclusion (BU D&I), which is led by the Vice President and Associate Provost for Community & Inclusion, will join a relatively newly created unit within Boston University focused on aligning the University's stated values regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion to its policies, practices, structures, climate, and culture. The Director will play an essential role in helping to develop institutional programs that promote a culture of inclusion, intellectual capaciousness, mutual respect, and civility. As a member of a newly created team, the Director will have the opportunity to develop and deepen a diverse slate of programs for faculty, staff, and students, and to work in collaboration with key stakeholders across the institution (ex: The Hub, academic departments especially in relation to schools and colleges and the academic program, the Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground, the Gotlieb Archives, Initiative on Cities, Build LAB, etc.) and within the city to create an exciting, expansive, and farsighted group of programs that are in accord with BUs founding principles and redoubled commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Director of Programs will be responsible for creating dynamic, programming focused on the public exploration of challenging ideas and catalyzing stronger communities among BUs broad range of constituents. These mutually reinforcing goals will help BU students, staff, and faculty to develop enhanced methods of engaging across difference.

Required Skills

We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.

Organization

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
