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 college President, Emerson College is seeking a Vice President for Institutional Advancement with demonstrated success in organizing, building, and leading a team of development professionals. Serving as a strategic partner to the President, the VP will build and oversee an Institutional Advancement division capable of reaching its full potential at this pivotal moment in Emerson’s 144-year history.
Collaborating and engaging with a range of stakeholders—from deans, faculty, and staff to students, alumni, and donors—the VP will identify key institutional priorities and build philanthropic support to meet the needs of the college’s vibrant community. Critical to the VP’s success will be the ability to recruit and retain talent and lay a strategic road map that inspires and mobilizes the Emerson advancement team.
