The University of Missouri - Director of Office of Fellowships and Advanced Studies (FSA)  

 Reporting to the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies, the Director will be responsible for building on the successful programs that have been separately managed as the MU Fellowships Office and MedOpp and for establishing MU’s first formal pre-law program. In time, the Director will expand FSA operations to include more general post-baccalaureate advising, complementing efforts made by faculty and staff within academic units.

 The Director will hold ultimate responsibility for merging the essential Fellowships, MedOpp, and pre-law efforts, including planning, implementing, and assessing programs and events; supervision of staff; and preparation of budgets. The Director will promote excellence in a culture committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

 Currently, the Fellowships Office consists of staff of two professionals and a graduate assistant and serves undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent alumni, seeking nationally competitive fellowships. The Director of FAS will replace the current fellowships director and be responsible for some of the major fellowships (e.g., Marshall, Mitchell, Rhodes, Truman). The current assistant director and an additional full-time staff member, who will replace the graduate assistant, will lead efforts on many of the other programs currently supported (e.g., Fulbright grants, NSF Graduate Research Fellowships, Boren Awards, Critical Language Scholarships).

 The Director will oversee and assist with some elements of MedOpp, which currently consists of two full-time professionals who advise undergraduates and recent graduates in preparing for careers in health care, principally through medical or dental school training. Because of increasing numbers of applicants for placement in medical and dental schools, FAS will add another MedOpp advisor.

 The Director will also be responsible for implementing the new pre-law advising program, drawing on the current pre-med example while collaborating closely with MU’s School of Law and key faculty and staff across campus to ensure that the new program is sound and effective in its practices. FAS will hire a full-time professional staff member to serve as the principal advisor; program growth will dictate the extent to which the pre-law advising staff will grow over time.
