Hampshire College, an independent, innovative liberal arts institution, is seeking an associate director, External Leadership Projects for the Civil Liberties and Public Policy (CLPP) Program, a national project that equips and inspires new generations of leaders through campus-based education, real-world advocacy practice, and the skills to build a stronger, more diverse movement for reproductive justice and social change.

The associate director, External Leadership Projects (AD) is the lead staff member advancing CLPP’s educational mission through the development and management of three major national projects:  CLPP’s paid summer internship program (Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps); national activist network (New Leadership Networking Initiative); and intensive Summer Leadership Institute.  The AD directs strategic program development and annual planning, infrastructure development, and implementation; program assessment; and management of program budgets, liabilities and expenditures; and acts as on-site program director for out-of-state trainings. The AD represents CLPP at the College and externally at regional, national and international meetings, and meets with and cultivates major donors and foundation supporters. The AD is responsible for managing and working collaboratively with other staff, faculty, College departments, and staff at partner organizations. This position holds supervisory responsibilities.
