Description

The Emory Scholars Program serves recipients of Emory University’s most prestigious undergraduate scholarships: the Robert W. Woodruff award, the George W. Jenkins Scholarship, and the Martin Luther King Scholarship.  The program aims to support the personal and professional development of students, and support Emory Scholars to foster positive change both during and after their time at Emory.  There are approximately 2300 alumni of the Emory Scholars program in a variety of fields, located across the world, who are excelling in their own work and making a difference in their communities.

Job Description:

Responsible for an academic program within the Emory College of Arts and Sciences (ECAS). Directs the planning, development, and implementation of programs. Develops long- and short-term goals and objectives for the program. Plans, administers, and monitors program budgets. Supervises staff and coordinates program efforts with other stakeholders in the University. May represent the University in national and international meetings.

The director of the Emory Scholars program takes a lead role in providing programming, advising and mentoring, and educational opportunities for recipients of major scholarships in Emory College of Arts and Sciences.  As a part of this work, the director advises students about opportunities for professional, academic and personal development, and designs programs to help students plan for the future and reflect on their experiences.

The director is responsible for developing contacts with alumni, and incorporating alumni participation in the activities of the Emory Scholars program.  Though the program has made progress in connecting alumni to current students and re-connecting them to the Emory Scholars program, there is still a great deal of work to reconnect and stay in contact with alumni.  The director will work with Advancement on this effort.  The Scholars in Emory College of Arts and Sciences also need connections to Scholars and Fellows in other colleges and units in the University, and the director is responsible for ensuring collaboration with others in the University.
