The University of San Diego (USD) is pleased to announce the search for a new Associate Director. To more effectively serve the USD student community, in our Catholic tradition, the Division of Student Affairs engaged in a re-organization process to enhance student sense of belonging and well-being. An outcome of this reorganization is the development of a commons model, where a leadership team will guide our identity development and social justice work.
This role will work as a member of this leadership team to more intentionally bring together the work of the Black Student Resource Commons, a new LGBTQ+ and Allies Commons, the United Front Multicultural Commonsand the Women's Commons. The individual hired for this role will spend a portion of their time focusing on gender identities by leveraging our existing Women's Commons
work. The new areas of focus include support of our LGBTQ+Allies Commons,with enhancements to our men and masculinities work.The commons model was deliberately selected to represent the idea of a place where resources, ideas and space are shared and where a community can grow.As the commons model develops we envision an environment that demonstrates the value of a holistic approach to promoting identity development and student success and where our entire student community will explore and learn about self and others.
Due to the evolving nature of our work we are seeking an individual with a keen ability to collaborate, someone who can implement visionary ways of working, and who is comfortable adjusting work requirements to meet the needs of students and the USD community.
