The Saint Joseph’s University Faith-Justice Institute seeks a director. The Faith-Justice Institute houses a thriving service-learning program and Faith-Justice certificate program. We seek a director who can heighten the profile of the Institute regionally and nationally through research, publication, and grant writing.

Other possible qualifications include: familiarity with service-learning, a commitment to community-building, and administrative experience.
The director of the Faith-Justice Institute advocates for Faith-Justice initiatives across campus, develops programming to promote social justice, and supports education for social change in keeping with the Jesuit spirit of faith and the promotion of justice. Other responsibilities include working with a three person staff; managing a small budget; providing professional development workshops for faculty; acting as a liaison between students, faculty, and staff concerning issues of peace, justice, and faith; organizing lectures and coordinating them with other campus organizations and departments; and periodically teaching within the Certificate program. A Ph.D. in a relevant field is preferred, but consideration will be given to M.A. candidates with strong qualifications. Flexible starting date. For fullest consideration, a letter demonstrating the candidate’s qualifications and a C.V. must be sent to Brice Wachterhauser, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, Saint Joseph’s University, 5600 City Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19131 by October 15th.
