As ACLS enters its second century and higher education institutions are facing a critical moment in their responses to racial inequity, the leadership aims to enhance ACLS’s unique role at the intersection of its constituencies (particularly the 75 learned societies, the diverse community of emerging scholars embarking on careers inside and outside the academy, and humanistic researchers working around the world) to influence, lead, and support initiatives addressing these challenges.
This is a new position, developed at an important and exciting moment for ACLS, in the midst of our Centennial Campaign and having just published our first-ever strategic plan. Working closely with the President, Vice President, the Senior Director of US Programs, the Director for International Programs, the Director of Philanthropy and other staff across the organization, the Program Officer will design and implement strategic initiatives that will enhance ACLS’s ability to serve our various constituencies and advance scholarship in new directions, with a focus on advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and social and racial justice. We welcome applications from individuals who bring new backgrounds, perspectives, types of professional and personal experience to our team and a commitment to equity in the academy.

What the project will entail The project will take place in July and last four weeks, requiring a commitment of 12 to 17 hours per week. Participants will work in small groups with students from the Voronezh State University.

The beginning of the project will be devoted to defining the theme and creating a research plan around it.
