Position Opening: Director of Student Services, United Lutheran Seminary
On July 1, 2017, United Lutheran Seminary was formed from the historic Gettysburg and Philadelphia Lutheran seminaries, retaining campuses in both locations while being served by a unified faculty and administration. Currently, United Lutheran Seminary is seeking a creative, energetic and hardworking individual to join the staff as Director of Student Services.
The Director of Student Services is a member of the Student Services and Enrollment staff and supports the mission of ULS through oversight and implementation of services that fall outside of the academic areas of the seminary. This includes student transition and orientation, professional workshops and spiritual formation, coordinating services for students with disabilities, coordinating services for international students, coordinating student life and student housing, managing an ongoing Lilly grant, and oversight of annual Title IX education requirements.
The candidate will also need to be familiar with the general theology and social statements of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and be committed to ecumenism and diversity.
This position reports to the Vice President of Student Services and Enrollment and can be based out of either campus, with the expectation that time will be spent regularly on both campuses.
A Bachelors degree is required; MA in student services, student affairs, higher ed administration or related area is strongly preferred; 3+ years experience in college or seminary student services is preferred; experience with church-related institutions is desired; theological training is not required but would be helpful.
Please send a letter of application, resume, and the contact information of three professional references to HR@uls.edu.
Review of applications will begin immediately. Starting date is negotiable, but preference is no later than July 15, 2018.
