University seeking associate director for study abroad

The University seeks nominations and applications for the position of associate director for study abroad. A member of the general faculty, the associate director reports to the director of the International Studies Office and works with the director and the Vice Provost for International Affairs to advocate, expand and diversify study-abroad participation, and create new study-abroad opportunities.

Specific responsibilities include: working with the director and faculty to assure the quality of overseas programs; developing University policies and procedures related to international education opportunities; working with students to facilitate their participation in study-abroad programs; coordinating, promoting, and evaluating faculty-led study-abroad programs; creating faculty incentive opportunities to meet the changing needs of the institution; working with the director and staff from key offices on budget development, fundraising and scholarship development activities at U.Va. and nationally; and supervising the day-to-day operations of the Study Abroad office.

The successful candidate must have leadership experience in study-abroad administration and should have demonstrated ability to work effectively with a diverse population of students, faculty, university offices and study-abroad contacts; extended period of living, studying and/or working abroad; and excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication skills. A master’s degree or equivalent combination of training and experience is required. Other desired qualifications include competency in a second language; familiarity with a variety of cultures; experience in the development of study-abroad and exchange programs; and budgetary and planning skills. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

A commitment to equal opportunity and diversity are fundamental principles at U.Va. Review of applications began April 2 and will continue until the position has been filled. Candidates should apply in writing and include a statement of qualifications, a full resumé of education and relevant experiences, and three references with current telephone numbers and e-mail addresses.
