Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics - Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences
Vacancy Number 301062
Position Type: Faculty position with benefits package
Opens: 05/06/20 Closes: Open Until Filled
Salary: Commensurate with qualifications
Note: Only current UB students, faculty and staff can apply and be considered. Position is open until filled, application review begins immediately, and applications submitted by May 21, 2020 will receive priority consideration.
The Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics invites internal applications for its new director to begin with a Summer 2020 start (contingent on final budget approval). The successful candidate will be expected to assume administrative oversight of The Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics, expand the Center’s capacity and role within the institution and community-at-large, and potentially teach courses in applied professional ethics at the University of Baltimore.
The new director will be joining a dynamic, cross-disciplinary, university-wide center which has been promoting applied ethics for more than thirty years. Established through a matching grant from the Hoffberger Family Foundation and the University of Baltimore, the Center has historically sought to: “...Integrate critical discussion of ethical issues across the University curricula.” The incoming director will be asked to develop a new strategic plan that will launch the Center as a regional thought leader for professional ethics.
Through a wide range of programs and activities – seminars, student positions, and scholarships – The Hoffberger Center has historically encouraged students and faculty to think responsibly about the kinds of moral dilemmas and choices they face as professionals and global citizens.
The role of the new director of the Hoffberger Center is to initiate, oversee, and execute plans for realizing and expanding the mission of the Center. The director will be responsible for generating and organizing the Center’s annual calendar of programs, trainings, events, and activities, as well as exploring and establishing ways to raise the Center’s profile within the University and also the professional and non-profit communities in the City of Baltimore, the Mid-Atlantic region, and beyond. In addition, the new director will be responsible for managing the Center’s annual budget and pursuing opportunities for acquiring additional grants to support the growth of the Center’s programs, projects, and events.
Competitive applicants will be able to:
• Increase the local and national recognition of the Center;
• Add broader community and professional outreach through specialized events, continuing education programming, certifications, and ethics trainings for business and government officials;
• Create partnerships with community-based organizations with similar missions, e.g. The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore, Catholic Charities of Baltimore, Associated Black Charities, and other philanthropies;
• Move toward growth in scope of Center through increased grant seeking/fundraising.
The Center director will work closely with an Advisory Board in planning annual activities and in seeking guidance regarding networking opportunities, fundraising, and recruitment of potential Board members. The Advisory Board is an active, engaged, and participatory group that is eager to expand the role of the Center within the University and to find ways to extend the work of the Center beyond the campus. Nevertheless, it will be important to add new members to the Board. With this in mind, significant ties to or connections with regional or national organizations that will facilitate such growth will be viewed advantageously. Board management and fundraising/development experience are also highly preferred.
Additionally, the Center director will be tasked with finding creative ways to leverage University faculty by supporting and showcasing the scholarship of its Senior Fellows and faculty across all disciplines through publications, seminars, and trainings on applied professional ethics.
In an effort to enhance and enrich the University’s curricula and its reputation for producing nationally regarded scholarship, a goal of the Center is to establish itself within the region as a significant contributor to scholarship in applied ethics. At present, fellows include faculty within the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Public Affairs, the School of Business, and the School of Law. Continuing and expanding this forward momentum will be important.
A terminal degree is preferred, but a master’s degree will be considered. Requires faculty teaching experience with significant administrative responsibilities or practitioner or leadership experience with significant relevant experience.
Evidence of teaching effectiveness and/or course development related to applied professional ethics will also be viewed favorably.
Senior leadership and experience overseeing institutional growth and change are preferred.
This position may involve classroom instruction at the undergraduate or graduate levels, on-campus, or online. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
