A thriving center of Jewish resources and talent built upon the mission of Jewish learning, culture, ethics, leadership and peoplehood, American Jewish University (AJU) is a school unlike any other. While very much an institution of higher education, it also offers resources to the community that far transcend what is typical for colleges and universities. With a new President at the helm, American Jewish University is poised for a new chapter of innovation.
AJU offers multiple ways to focus on Jewish life and civilization, family life, and arts and culture. The University is comprised of academic programs, a large and respected continuing studies operation, a day and overnight camp, and a Rabbinical school.
AJU seeks a Vice President for Advancement (Vice President) to enhance a culture of philanthropy and build a comprehensive best-practice advancement operation that will heighten the institution’s continued and enhanced record of service to the community. To facilitate this reaching of new and greater milestones, the incoming Vice President will partner with the new President and a committed board of trustees to build and execute a strategic plan that lays out a roadmap to a compelling vision for the institution’s future. This is a tremendous opportunity for a seasoned leader to reshape an Advancement department at a successful institution that is experiencing such strategic growth.
