    Title: Faith & Race Program Director and Protestant Chaplain

    University: Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH


    The Faith and Race Program Director and Protestant Chaplain is responsible for two facets of the Center for Faith & Justice’s mission: the intersection of faith and race, and ministry for and with Protestant students. This position is a part of a dynamic team that enjoys collaboration and will report to the director of the center. With attention to our society’s particular context, this staff person will invite students to consider vocational discernment—who they will become in the world—consistent with the Jesuit values of our university. Responsibilities include:

    · Organizing and supporting student leaders (“and teams” or “teams of student leaders”?);

    · Developing campus wide partnerships and initiatives at the intersection of faith and race, in conjunction with the goals in the University’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategic plan;

    · Building relationships between the Center for Diversity & Inclusion, the Office of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion, and the Center for Faith & Justice;

    · Managing programs like Gospel Choir and Common Ground as a pastor to the Christian, non-Catholic students on campus, with a particular emphasis on the support and care of students who identify as Black;

    · Providing leadership in the center, the Division of Student Affairs, and across campus as we seek to address interpersonal and structural racism in our community

    · Actively participating in a dynamic and collaborative department that has a multifaith chaplaincy staff.

    An ideal candidate would have experience with our Jesuit tradition, and bring significant experience leading initiatives that promote inclusion, diversity, and pluralism. Candidates must have 3-5 years of pastoral experience, with a preference for experience in campus ministry, higher education, student formation, or young adult ministry. Commitment to the University’s mission, vision, and values is required.
