Pay Grade
15 Employee Category Professional staff Department Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion EClass Code Full Time Professional Staff Position Summary
The Assistant Director of the Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion is a creative and passionate student affairs professional who operates from a lens of understanding and prioritizing equity in working with MSU Denver’s diverse students. The Assistant Director has a focus on supporting student leaders who are members of the MSU Denver Fraternity and Sorority Life ( FSL ) community, as well as the Student Government Assembly ( SGA ) but is involved in student engagement work across the CMEI, Student Engagement & Wellness, and the Division of Student Affairs. The Assistant Director is a strategic and student-centered thinker who is also adept at developing effective professional relationships with individual and departments. Note: While this position has focus areas, as outlined in this job description, the successful individual will be an adaptable student engagement generalist who is adept at pivoting to contribute to different program areas and initiatives, as needed.

The Assistant Director is responsible for active advisement of SGA elected leaders. This work is also supported by other administrative leaders within Student Affairs who share advising responsibilities. The Assistant Director works closely with SGA leaders to help them set applicable goals, to facilitate leadership development among the SGA team, and to help the elected leaders effectively carry out their responsibilities as the representative governance organization of MSU Denver’s diverse student body.

The Assistant Director is also responsible for cultivating a strong, inclusive, values-based, and safe FSL community at the University. To this end, the Assistant Director engages in community building, risk management, and leadership development work with existing fraternity and sorority members, and is also responsible for coordinating the relationships with inter/national Greek-letter organizations and umbrella entities ( NALFO, NMGC, NPC, NPHC, NIC, etc.) as well as the process for expansion of the FSL community at the University.

Metropolitan State University of Denver is a unique, access-oriented campus community that values diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its forms. We are a designated Hispanic Serving Institution located in downtown Denver. Our student population consists of nearly 50% first generation students and over 45% students of color.

Within the Division of Student Affairs, we strive to create an equitable learning and working environment in concert with individuals who consistently demonstrate commitment to equity and inclusion. We value the diverse identities and perspectives of our students, faculty, and staff and recognize that in order to achieve a just and equitable society, diversity must go beyond simple representation. Rather, it requires critical inquiry and dialogue and a commitment to action. We strive to provide a foundation for all community members to achieve personal and professional success.
