Johns Hopkins University - Director, Scholars & Fellows

 General Summary:

The Director of Scholars & Fellows will provide leadership in integrating and building out a new portfolio of scholars programs and national fellowships advising. Within the Center for Student Success, the existing fellowships program will merge with a new cohort-based scholars program focused on first-generation and limited-income (FLI) students interested in the social sciences and humanities. This nexus will also provide a new home for an existing cohort-based scholars program at the university. The integration of these three programs has a two-fold goal: to provide strong pipelines of FLI students for fellowships opportunities; to allow the fellowships program to develop a stronger presence for freshmen and sophomores. All staff roles in this new unit will advise both scholars and fellowships applicants.

 The director will have expertise in scholar development, familiarity with the landscape of nationally competitive fellowships, demonstrated success in working with high-achieving underrepresented students, including success in navigating issues that typically confront first-generation and/or limited-income (FLI) students. The director will oversee the existing fellowships advising program, lead and build out the new Kessler Scholars Program, and serve as a liaison and visible presence for the Baltimore Scholars Program. The person in this role must move effortlessly in both faculty and administrative cultures, and be effective in both student-facing work and collaboration with development officers.

 As head of the new Scholars & Fellows unit, the director also holds the title of director of the Kessler Scholars Program at JHU. This new program is dedicated to an intensive enrichment experience via academic and professional resources for first-generation and limited-income (FLI) students who are pursuing study in the humanities and social sciences. The program is scheduled to launch in Fall 2020 with a cohort of ca.15- 20 scholars with the potential of growing to 70-80 scholars once fully established. The inaugural director of the Kessler Scholars Program at JHU will play a leading role in program design and implementation efforts and is responsible for the overall experience and student success of the scholars. The director will be responsible for measuring, evaluating, and reporting on the programming, advising, mentoring, and interventions employed in the program. The director will also play a key role in collaborating with partner programs at other institutions to share knowledge on best practices, program design and evaluation.

 All students in the two cohort-based scholars programs will also be part of a recently established advising/coaching program at JHU, which provides them with a steady resource throughout the undergraduate experience. The advising/coaching program will support scholars in navigating their academic experience (proactive academic planning, creative problem solving, and connection to academic resources). Advisors/coaches also provide year-round proactive holistic guidance (addressing self-care, socio-emotional well-being, career-related issues including major choice, internships, full-time employment, graduate school opportunities, and other post baccalaureate positions). Within the new Scholars & Fellows team, advising focuses on students’ intellectual wayfinding and, in the context of fellowships advising, intense and iterative feedback meant to push applicants to high levels of self-reflection and expressive competence.

 The Director of Scholars and Fellows reports to the Executive Director for Student Success.

 Education: 

Master’s degree in student affairs, higher education, counseling or related fields including a humanities or social science discipline is required. PhD preferred.

 Experience: 

Five years of experience leading, implementing, managing programs of similar complexity required. Seven years of experience preferred.
