Associate Director, Baruch College Writing Center (Deadline: December 5th, 2018)

The Baruch College Writing Center provides free support for undergraduate and graduate students to improve their writing and English language skills and to become more independent, confident, and versatile writers. Our professional consultants – teachers of college writing and writers themselves – are expert, invested, attentive readers who recognize strengths and teach students specific strategies to improve their writing. The Writing Center collaborates closely with academic departments and other student support units to offer an array of programming and services, including one-to-one consultations, synchronous and asynchronous online consulting, interdisciplinary workshops, and writing groups. It also publishes a staff blog, Writers Teaching Writers, and an online journal of outstanding student writing, The Lexington Review. Last academic year, the Center’s consultants met with students in about 7,000 one-to-one sessions and ran over 100 workshops.

About 65% of students who visit the Writing Center report a language other than English as their “first or home language”—more than 130 languages are spoken at Baruch – and we see the Writing Center as an ideal space to facilitate language acquisition. We support students in Baruch’s three schools: the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the Zicklin School of Business. Most of our students are enrolled (or intend to be) in the school of business, and the Writing Center also supports students’ professional writing.

Assist in all stages of the hiring process for new front desk and consultant positions, serving as the direct supervisor to our team of student workers.

Assist the Director in the development and implementation of the 2018-2023 strategic plan.
