Now hiring: Assistant Director for Living-Learning CommunitiesPosted January 11th, 2013 by UHDS News
Oregon State University’s University Housing & Dining Services (UHDS) is seeking qualified applicants for a full-time (1.0 FTE), 12-month, Assistant Director for Living-Learning Communities (ADLLC) to begin in July 2013. The ADLLC is a 52-week live-off, professional.
The Assistant Director for Living-Learning Communities (ADLLC) is responsible for development and oversight of Living-Learning Communities (LLC’s) within UHDS. The LLC’s aspire to broaden the vision of our residential students by expanding what it means to be a “learner.” The ADLLC collaborates with campus partners within Student Affairs and Academic Affairs to build sustainable communities that contribute to the goals of the First Year Experience (FYE), support academic achievement and contribute to student success. The ADLLC supports the establishment of intended learning outcomes and assessment instruments to evaluate the efficacy of the LLC’s. A principle pedagogical objective of this position is to expand the academic experience beyond the walls of the classroom and foster out of class interaction between students, staff and faculty members so that learning takes place where students live and is viewed as an essential part of the residential experience.
The ADLLC will supervise up to 2 full time, Master’s level Resident Directors, a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and up to 14 undergraduate paraprofessionals in creating safe, educational, caring, and inclusive communities.
The Residential Education Unit strives to foster students’ personal awareness, appreciation of others and development of skills to succeed in a diverse, global society and encourages them to demonstrate responsible and ethical behavior in their communities. Additionally, Residential Education provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills.
This position is a year-round (12-month) 1.0 FTE unclassified position. The ADLLC is a member of the Residential Leadership Team (RLT) and will serve in a second level on-call rotation. Salary range is $60,000 – $65,000.
