  • Responsibilities

    The Director of the faculty and staff focused LGBTQIA+ center at Boston University will oversee a newly created office at Boston University focused on supporting LGBTQIA+ faculty and staff. The Director will be responsible for creating the new office, hiring and managing staff, developing and implementing programming, and engaging in institutional efforts to maximize a sense of belongingness and connectedness among BU’s LGBTQIA+ community. The Director will also work with stakeholders across the University and in the broader Boston community to advance the work of the center. The new director will also develop structures and processes that allow for substantive input by community members and will advance a sense of collective engagement and action that engenders the community’s sense of ownership and bolsters engagement. Further, when necessary and appropriate, the Director will partner with colleagues in Student Affairs to ensure that the work of the center is aligned with and/or complimentary to work being done elsewhere on campus to support LGBTQIA+ students.

    The Director will report to the Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion and will find natural and important partnerships within BU Diversity & Inclusion. The director will be responsible for creating dynamic, comprehensive, and responsive programming for the wide variety of constituents at BU, including faculty, staff, and academic and administrative leadership and will partner with BU D&I’s Director of Learning and Training, BU D&I’s Director of Programs, and administrative offices across the University including Student Affairs, the Howard Thurman Center, Human Resources, Marketing and Communications, among others. Additionally, the successful candidate will work to effectively partner with the newly formed Faculty/Staff Networks (ERG), LGBTQIA+ research network, and other entities on campus.

    This role requires the ability to simultaneously work as the leader of a people-focused center, synthesizing and tailoring programs based on the unique requirements that faculty and staff have, and also the ability to work at the institutional level, helping to inform effective practices that will increase LGBTQIA+ belongingness and success at Boston University. To that end, the Director must be diplomatic, strategic, highly organized, creative and tactical, visionary, and a fundamentally relational leader driven to deliver tangible results.
