Academic Center Director - Kupferberg Holocaust Center

Queensborough Community College invites applications for Director of the Kupferberg Holocaust Center.
CUNY is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce. It welcomes nominations of, and applications from members of protected groups including minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as others who would bring additional perspectives to the university?s mission. Candidates with demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusiveness through their research, teaching and/or service are also encouraged to apply. One of the Queensborough Community College?s greatest strengths, and a necessary element of excellence, is the diversity of our community. We strive to attract and nurture a talented and diverse faculty and staff that proudly reflect the unique character of the local Queens community, the most diverse county in the United States.
The Director reports to the Vice President for Institutional Advancement and leads the operational, educational, outreach, and fundraising programs of the Kupferberg Holocaust Center. The mission of the Kupferberg Holocaust Center (KHC) is to use lessons from the Holocaust to educate current and future generations about the ramifications of unbridled prejudice, racism and stereotyping. The lessons of the Holocaust are also used to develop exhibits and programs related to genocide, mass atrocities, and contemporary issues. The Center seeks to encourage an awareness of, and appreciation for, the value of diversity in a pluralistic society.
The Director's leadership and vision guides the production of customized exhibits and their attendant catalogues each semester dealing with Holocaust-related themes and, in doing so, assembles and directs a production team consisting of researchers, writers and graphic designers; creates a production, distribution and viewing schedule for the exhibits; and develops budgets and funding sources to support their creation, distribution, marketing and evaluation.
The Director's background and collaborative skills will assist him/her in creating and maintaining working relationships with the faculty and department chairs of the College to have the KHC serve as a learning laboratory for Queensborough students, including students who are in those programs directly related to the study of the Holocaust as well as those who are not. Key components of interaction with the Queensborough student body are the various internship programs coordinated by the KHC Director.
The Director's knowledge and planning for the KHC's educational programs, activities and events for the greater community shall incorporate the available research on the Holocaust, the experiences of Holocaust survivors, the needs of second and third generation survivors, the concerns of the KHC Advisory Board and the expressed concerns of Queens County's most diverse, multi-ethnic community in developing a mechanism that adds relevance to such studies and provides to the users an approach to addressing prejudice and enhancing individual and group relations. The KHC's programs, activities and events are held throughout the year and scheduled during days, evenings and weekends.
The Director's inspiration and commitment to the mission of the KHC will guide his/her efforts in developing working and funding relationships with community organizations, elected officials and funding sources. Support for the KHC's programs is generated by grants, sponsorships, membership, annual fund campaigns, major gifts, planned giving, naming opportunities, speaker stipends or rental fees from the KHC customized exhibits, along with funds generated by the KHC's endowment.
The Director, working in conjunction with the Office of Marketing and Communications, maintains a constant public awareness of the KHC and its ongoing customized exhibits and instructional materials.
