The campus is committed to increasing access to an excellent UW education and preparing students to be leaders throughout Washington and beyond.

The University values hiring faculty and staff who have demonstrated experience and ability to work successfully with diverse student populations and who can contribute to a campus culture that promotes equity among colleagues.

Diversity and inclusion are core values at UW Bothell. Our work begins with the acceptance and celebration of the differences that are represented through the many diverse and minoritized communities on our campus and in the surrounding community. We recognize that we are bound together in a collective experience and that our actions impact all in our community. When we focus on the lives of the most marginalized groups among us, we also create conditions of equity, justice and academic excellence for everyone.

The three priorities of the University’s current Strategic Plan - Increasing Access, Achieving Excellence are to: strengthen diversity and equity, enhance community and campus engagement, and advance cross-disciplinary teaching and scholarship.

In addition to having award winning faculty and staff, UW Bothell has been recognized for innovations in academic programming and support services designed to help students graduate on time and debt-free.

UW Bothell Student Engagement & Activities (SEA), is excited to hire Program Manager of Student Engagement & Activities to join our fun, dynamic team of student affairs educators. In SEA, we create environments for students to be extraordinary; we ground our work in student leadership and social justice. SEA has 6 professional staff who support the engagement of 30+ student staff; together we support 80+ student clubs and implement more than 400 programs and events with combined attendance of more than 20,000 students annually. We are a busy office that is actively engaged with student leaders to create learning environments for students outside of the classroom.

The Program Manager of Student Engagement & Activities will be integral to these efforts as the co-adviser to UW Bothell’s student government, the Associated Students of the University of Washington Bothell (ASUWB). This group of elected and appointed student leaders are the official voice of UW Bothell students. They seek to enhance the entire student experience by advocating for policy that promotes student interests and serving as a liaison to administration. They are passionate advocates for student voice, diversity and social justice, and accessible and meaningful resources for students of all identities and needs. ASUWB students will look to the Program Manager for navigating university policies and processes, identity development, and risk management so that their initiatives effectively engage all identities, experiences, backgrounds, and abilities. This Program Manager will specifically advise elections and hiring processes, in addition to other ASUWB functions. The other primary responsibility of all SEA Program Managers is to share in the responsibility of advising registered student clubs, including supporting processes for club registration, training, event-planning, purchasing, and assessment.

As a built-in professional development opportunity, there is the possibility for Program Managers in our office to rotate primary student organization advising assignments, which also include the Campus Events Board, Social Justice Organizers, and Student Media.

In this role, you’ll love the close advising relationships you build with students, the positive and collaborative team of professional staff who genuinely care about equity and one another, and having the flexibility to be creative with your programming. This role would be a great fit for a current student activities professional that is familiar with student government and student leadership development; however, we’re excited to see any candidates that bring experience and passion for advising student leaders and that have an understanding of identity, power, and privilege.

We are excited to see your application. Please write to hiring managers Sam Al-Khoury (sea2@uw.edu) and Carla Christensen (carla24@uw.edu) with your questions.
