Just passing along word about another job opportunity...The University of Pennsylvania's AAPI resource center, the Pan-Asian American Community House, is looking for a new Director. The PAACH is the critical hub for Penn's AAPI activism, programming and student life, so this is a pretty important position. Here are some more details about the position:

The director leads the provision of co-curricular, cultural and social programs for students and student organizations with an emphasis on Asian Pacific American diasporic programming.

The Director collaborates with student groups affiliated with the center and other university entities to connect students to all resources relevant to their academic and leadership development and represents the office on University Committees. Position reports to the Associate Vice Provost for Equity and Access.

Qualifications: Master's required, Ph.D. preferred; minimum of 3-5 years experience in higher education administrations, program development and management, preferably in student affairs; teaching experience desired. Strong knowledge of Asian/Pacific American community required; excellent interpersonal, organizational, technology and communication skills required; proven ability to interact effectively with diverse constituencies.
I've worked with AAPI students at the University of Pennsylvania before on several occasions, and they're a great group. For further information about the position, and to apply, go to the Jobs@Penn website here. And for more information about the Pan-Asian American Community House, go here.
