The Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service prepares Tufts students in all fields of study for lifetimes of active citizenship, promotes new knowledge in the field, and builds an enduring and broadly shared ethos of citizenship and public service across Tufts University. Tisch College's strategy is to catalyze civic engagement and community building by identifying, generating, and supporting Tufts students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners develop creative and effective approaches to active citizenship at the university and in communities around the world. These civic engagement activities can take many forms: academic research, curriculum development, forums and conferences, coursework, internships, volunteer work, and more.

The Program Administrator plans and facilitates programs to engage 60% of Tufts University students in meaningful active citizenship learning opportunities, both curricular and co-curricular which develop civic knowledge and skills, by being intentional, frequent, intensive and connected. This includes lead responsibility for summer fellowship programs in multiple cities, our senior Latin honors program, Honos Civicus, and our project funding program for graduate students. The Program Administrator develops and manages Tisch College programs and promotes other high quality civic opportunities and also undertakes communications and recognition activities to encourage student engagement. Most programs are executed in partnership with University academic programs and departments, student services, alumni and others. The Program Administrator will also serve as the first point of contact for selected community partners that host students during the year and/or during the summer.

Basic Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree
  • Three to five (3-5) years of experience in program or project coordination for student audiences
  • Microsoft Office
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, attention to detail, and analytic ability
  • National travel may be required 3-4 times per year, for the purposes of attending conferences, building ACS infrastructure, and relationship building (travel anticipated to be less than 10 percent of the role).

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Five to seven (5-7) years of experience with program development, program implementation, and program coordination for student development, with prior supervisory experience.
  • Academic preparation in a related discipline, with an advanced degree preferred.
  • Familiarity and appreciation for models of community engagement.
  • Demonstrated commitment and understanding of issues of diversity and inclusion.

Special Work Schedule Requirements:

  • Will require evening and weekend work as needed for national travel and to attend student related events.   

Tufts University is an AA/EO employer and actively seeks candidates from diverse backgrounds.
