Founded in 1837, Mount Holyoke College is the oldest women’s college in the United States and the founding college of the Seven Sisters. This highly selective, nondenominational, residential, research liberal arts college is renowned for educating women, from medical pioneers to Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights. Located in South Hadley, Massachusetts, the school has 2,189 students from 45 states and 74 countries. It was recently granted the Paul Simon Award for excellence in international education. (Nearly 25% of the school population originates from outside the United States.) 55% of the incoming first year students were in the top 10% of their high school class. Mount Holyoke College has been at the forefront of social movements, blazing trails across science, law, politics and the arts.
The Alumnae Association, an independent non-profit incorporated in 1923, provides programs, expertise and resources encouraging lifelong learning and empowering alumnae to connect with each other and the College. There are currently more than 37,000 living Mount Holyoke College alumnae.
The Alumnae Association of Mount Holyoke College is seeking a
broadly skilled, sophisticated leader to provide vision, serve as an ambassador
for the association, and be the institutional voice for the 37,000 alumnae
across the world. The
Executive Director will offer strategic leadership
and direction, working closely with the President of the Alumnae Association
and the Board of Directors, as well as collaborating with the president, officers,
and senior staff at the college. As an
advisor and thought partner, the Executive Director will plan and administer
dynamic and innovative programs that respond to the diverse population of
alumnae. This director will manage an alumnae relations team to implement
activities including communications (print, electronic, and social media), global
symposiums, reunions and a volunteer leadership conference. By overseeing the
large and active force of alumnae volunteers globally, the Executive Director
will continue to strengthen the vital network of past students and promote
Mount Holyoke College’s rich history.
