Marymount Manhattan College – Chief Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Officer

Marymount Manhattan College (MMC), on New York’s Upper East Side, seeks a strategic, collaborative, and inspiring leader to become its next Chief Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Officer (Chief EDI Officer). The Chief EDI Officer is responsible for new and existing College- wide efforts to foster an equitable, diverse, and inclusive campus environment, and to undertake these efforts in partnership with a wide array of constituencies, including students, faculty, staff, and trustees. The Chief EDI Officer will report directly to the President, serve on her senior leadership team, and act as a liaison to the Board of Trustees.

Established in 1936, MMC is a national small liberal arts college focused on critical inquiry, creative practice, and social impact, and embedded in the rich educational and professional landscape of a world-class city. The College welcomes students of all identities, all beliefs, and all backgrounds. Current enrollment is 1,500 full-time students, 40% of whom live in MMC residence halls. The College’s distinguished faculty and dedicated staff are committed first and foremost to student learning and success, which form the centerpiece of the College’s Strategic Plan. With the arrival of a new president in 2015, the College established its first formal structures and programs to advance diversity and inclusion on campus. Since then, the College has initiated an EDI Strategic Plan; revised recruitment and hiring processes; made meaningful changes to the curriculum; developed divisional Racial Equity Action Plans; and established the MMC Intercultural Center, a safe and welcoming space for students across systematically minoritized groups.

The next Chief EDI Officer will work with College stakeholders to build on this foundation. MMC seeks candidates who have led organizational change in equity, diversity, and inclusion, preferably in a higher education context. The successful candidate will have the knowledge and skills to help turn MMC’s social and racial justice commitments into action. A minimum of five years of progressively responsible experience in relevant areas is required, as is a bachelor’s degree (advanced degree strongly preferred). A detailed description is available on the Job Opportunities page of the MMC website.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. For full consideration, application materials should be submitted by October 4, 2021. Applications should consist of two documents in PDF format: (1) an in-depth cover letter that addresses the candidate’s qualifications and accomplishments in the areas identified above, and (2) a detailed résumé, including a list of up to five professional references with titles and contact information. References will not be contacted without the candidate’s knowledge and permission.
