Assistant Director of Education for Equity and Inclusion
Middlebury College (a small, private, residential liberal arts college in Vermont) is recruiting an Assistant Director of Education for Equity and Inclusion. The focus of the work will be developing and facilitating workshops and dialogues that address the manifestations and impact of racism, ableism, classism, heterosexism, cissexism, and other systems of oppression as well as strategies and skills for disrupting and dismantling oppression. This position will work primarily with students.
The Education for Equity and Inclusion unit is part of the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, which also includes the Chief Diversity Officer, the Civil Rights and Title IX office, the Disability Resource Center, the Scott Center for Religious and Spiritual Life, and the Anderson Freeman Center (our multicultural center). The person hired for this position should have a demonstrated commitment to social justice and a desire to foster space and facilitate educational opportunities that are transformative, both for students and for the broader culture of the campus. We seek applications from individuals with an understanding of the ways intersecting systems of oppression (e.g., racism, ableism, classism, heterosexism, cissexism, etc.) impact students from various underrepresented communities (e.g., students with disabilities, students of color, queer, transgender, first-generation, low-income, international, immigrant, undocumented, tribal and indigenous communities) and with the ability to provide culturally competent and inclusive education and support services.
