Located in the heart of Boston, Emerson College is internationally recognized in its fields of specialization in communication and the arts with a strong liberal arts foundation. Since 1880, the visionary leaders who built Emerson College have been inspired by the highest educational aspirations. They have envisioned higher education as more than pure scholarship, but rather an immersive preparation for meeting human needs and launching brilliant artistic careers.
Energized by the creative ferment on campus and across Boston, Emerson students are creative thinkers and doers who develop their own personal voice and expertise in professions that profoundly shape society and culture in the 21st century.
Under the leadership of a visionary new President, Emerson College is seeking a Vice President and Chief of Staff with demonstrated success in senior leadership coordination, board management, issues management, and supporting and partnering with executive leadership in higher education.
VP and Chief of Staff will be an advisor and right hand to the President – serving as a confidante and architect of important solutions that ensure operational success. As a member of the senior cabinet, the VP and Chief of Staff should be effective in building relationships and managing campus-wide projects that activate stakeholders while serving the best interests of the College.
Managing a team of professionals in the areas of executive administration, project management, and events in the President’s Office, the VP and Chief of Staff will also serve as a primary liaison to the Board of Trustees. The best-matched professional will possess a high emotional quotient, excellent communication skills, experience with strategic planning, and a passion for collaborative problem-solving.
