    Position Summary

    The UO Alumni Association (UOAA) is looking for a Program Management for Student Engagement who is focused on the customer service experience, skilled at tracking and managing details and energized by working with students and alumni. In this role, you will be responsible for developing and managing programs that support the transition of current students into engaged and enthusiastic alumni, especially the Student Alumni Association (SAA).

    The primary goals of the SAA are to develop lifelong relationships between students and the university and to enhance the student experience by providing opportunities to connect with the broader alumni community. This student-led part of the UOAA creates and implements programs for SAA members, including social events, leadership opportunities, and professional development activities. As the program manager, you will oversee the operation of this membership-based student organization, engage in revenue-generating activities, and work with colleagues in the UOAA, University Advancement (UA), and the university to create opportunities for students to engage as future alumni. You will work closely with campus partners, including the UO Career Center, Parent and Family Association (PFA), UO Homecoming Committee, Center for Student Involvement (CSI), and Student Orientation Programs.

You will serve as a role model for the students you work with and provide guidance and leadership to help them reach their full potential. All plans, programs, and activities must connect to the larger mission and goals of the UOAA, UA, and the UO.

    The Program Manager reports to the Senior Associate Director of Alumni Engagement and is located in Eugene.
