Are you passionate about institutions delivering on the promise of higher education? Excited about introducing deserving students to a program that will shape their lives, and put them on a trajectory better than if they did anything else? Are you a self-starter, yet someone who would thrive as part of a wonderfully diverse global team? If this describes you, you may be the right candidate for the role of Outreach Manager, North America.
Minerva offers a unique undergraduate experience for the brightest, most motivated students in the world. Combining a reinvented and rigorous curriculum, highly selective admissions, rigorous academic standards, cutting-edge technology, and an immersive global experience, Minerva provides an exceptional education to prepare future leaders and innovators across all disciplines. In 2013 Minerva formed an alliance with Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) to establish the Minerva Schools at KGI. KGI is an accredited institution offering graduate-level professional degrees in addition to the undergraduate degrees and two master’s degrees offered by the Minerva Schools.
Minerva undergraduate students come from all over the world to spend their first year in residence in San Francisco and then live and study in a different major world city every semester thereafter. These rich international experiences provide students with deep global understanding and skills.
Minerva is enrolling bright, talented and intensely curious students who will push themselves to grow intellectually and socially. In order to find and enroll these students, awareness about Minerva’s model and targeted outreach, particularly among key stakeholders, is essential.
For this role Minerva is looking for someone to lead regional outreach, partnerships, awareness-building, and relevant efforts in North America. The position requires a creative mindset to find innovative ways to reach key audiences, the drive to deliver impressive results, and the comfort at working in an entrepreneurial environment. The right person is passionate about the future of higher education, and hungry to make an impact.
The role requires a disciplined individual who can work independently, yet as part of a diverse global team. There will be extensive travel visiting potential partners, students, families, counselors, teachers, administrators and educational organizations across the country (expect ~40% depending on time of year).
Ideally the position is based in the Northeast (NY, Boston, Washington DC), yet other cities will be considered.
