Job Summary

The BOLD (Broadening Opportunity through Leadership and Diversity) Center encourages applications for a Leadership and Scholarship Program Manager! In partnership with BOLD leadership, this position will support BOLD scholarship, community, and leadership strategy with the goal of improving retention and student engagement for underrepresented populations.

The BOLD Center has college-wide responsibility for broadening the participation of students in engineering through encouraging academic excellence for an inclusive body of engineering students to succeed. The BOLD Center intends to achieve breakthroughs in attracting, preparing and expanding opportunities for historically underrepresented students – first-generation college bound youth, women, students of color and students from low income families – in engineering through the development and provision of effective curriculum and support to ensure academic success.

Who We Are

The BOLD Center is part of the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s dedication to creating a diverse environment where all engineering students are welcome, and where students who are traditionally underrepresented in engineering are empowered to achieve their dreams. Our programs promote student retention and success through academic resources, student leadership opportunities, cultural programming, affinity-based student societies, and a supportive community.
