The School of Arts and Letters at the College of St. Scholastica invites applications for the position of Program Director, Master of Arts in Nonprofit Leadership (MNPL) at the rank of Assistant Professor with the possibility of tenure track. MNPL is a new program; the inaugural director will have responsibility for its establishment, development, and success. The program will prepare graduates for leadership roles in nonprofit organizations working in the arts, culture, racial and economic justice, sustainability, education, violence prevention, immigration, housing, and other health and human services.

The MNPL program, in close alignment with the College’s Benedictine values, seeks to advance equity and justice by preparing professionals who can put skills and theory into practice in diverse community settings. The program’s mission is to graduate creative, values-oriented, culturally knowledgeable, and justice-minded leaders who can serve their communities through building respectful relationships. We seek a director who can help us to realize this mission.

At the College of St. Scholastica, we believe that equity and inclusion are key ingredients of academic excellence and the success of all our students. Our Catholic Benedictine heritage, grounded in Catholic social teaching, informs this vision of Inclusive Excellence (http://www.css.edu/administration/human-resources/inclusive-excellence.html). Candidates must demonstrate evidence of cultural competence and be committed to working closely with diverse populations.
