Application Deadline Open until filled

The mission of Tufts’ Women’s Center is to work towards equality of all people, to claim control over our bodies and lives, to challenge patriarchal power structures, to educate, and to support and celebrate our achievements. The Women’s Center works intentionally to address and end the damaging impacts of an enforced gender binary. The Women’s Center particularly investigates gender at the intersections of other identities such as race, sexuality, class, and citizenship status. We are committed to intersectional feminism, fostering student leadership and creating spaces to identify and understand societal structures that relate to issues of power, privilege, and oppression.  The Women’s Center is within the Division of Student Diversity and Inclusion and works closely with the other identity base cultural centers to holistically support students, staff, and faculty.

What You'll Do

Under limited supervision, the Associate Center Director applies subject matter expertise to develop, implement, supervise, and evaluate quality programs on issues related to multiple intersecting identities (i.e., gender, class, disability, sexual orientation, citizenship/nationality). In addition, this position writes grants and seeks funding sources for center programs and initiatives and conducts needs assessments.  The Associate Center Director works closely and represents the center with student-facing resources and departments including other identity-based resources, residential life and learning, the CARE office, faculty, and the departments within and beyond the division. The Associate Director also works closely with Center Senior Director to complete all projects and programs connected to the Women’s Center.

  • Awareness of how social identities will impact the experience of college students; strong background in understanding issues impacting the experience of students historically underrepresented at Tufts, including students of color, first-generation and undocumented students, and an awareness of various models for identity-based resource centers
  • Demonstrated sensitivity, imagination, and effectiveness in developing educational and community programs; facility in designing programs and resources that consider cultural constructions of race as it intersects with gender, class, ethnicity, sexual identity, religion, and ability.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree preferred with 3+ years related experience
