Advocacy & Mission-Driven Nonprofits

Director of Programs University Club of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois

The University Club is a private members’ club that is committed to fostering an appreciation of literature and the arts. It is member-owned, Board-driven, and proud to provide a space where members can explore many intellectual and cultural pursuits. College or university graduation remains the basic requirement for membership, and nearly every business and profession are represented within a diverse network of members.

The Opportunity

The University Club of Chicago is one of the city’s oldest and most enduring institutions. The Club offers its members a vibrant environment that celebrates education, excellence, and community. For over a century the Club has offered a home away from home for its thousands of members. While the pandemic has certainly presented challenges and changes within the Club, the leadership is taking the opportunity to re-energize, reinvigorate, and rethink every aspect of the member experience. One of these initiatives is to create a new team, the Culture and Community Division.

A cornerstone of this team will be the Programs Department that will drive engaging, enriching, and enlightening programs. The Director of Programs will be responsible for developing a comprehensive educational and social program, including book launches, speaker series, and rotating exhibitions that attract and retain Club members while advancing the visibility, impact, and influence of the Club in Chicago’s cultural communities.
