Tracking Code2095 Job Description

About the Role

Boston University Undergraduate Admissions seeks an Assistant Director. Assistant Directors in the Undergraduate Admissions Office are required to represent the University at programs both on and off campus while managing a recruitment territory. The person in this position is expected to participate in the efforts of our office to build a strong and diverse applicant pool and commit to principles of antiracism, diversity, equity and inclusion in the college search and application process. Managing a recruitment territory requires extensive travel domestically in order to build and maintain relationships with high school personnel, representatives from community-based organizations as well as prospective students and their families. This position is required to holistically review and evaluate applications for admission, participate in our committee process, and identify potential scholarship candidates. This position will act as a liaison to an office or Admission function and maintain a high knowledge level of Boston University and the field of college admissions. Evening and weekend hours are necessary for most of the calendar year, as well as the ability to travel extensively for days or weeks at a time.

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.
