As you are aware, NUBAA has seen tremendous activity and growth. The construction of a large operational infrastructure has presented the need to ensure stability and continuation of our best efforts. To that end, over the last year, we have been in discussions with Northwestern’s Department of Alumni Relations and Development about permanent, targeted support for NUBAA.

We are extremely proud to announce NU has approved a new position that will be responsible for the enhancement and cultivation of the Black alumni community through the development of strategies to better engage black alumni with Northwestern and with each other. The Senior Associate Director for Alumni Engagement will report directly to Laura M. Wayland, Executive Director of the Northwestern Alumni Association. S/he will serve as the primary point of contact with NUBAA to develop and implement alumni and student based initiatives for Northwestern, starting with having an integral role in the activities of the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the Bursar’s Office Takeover.

This position will also develop and implement programming and outreach to connect black alumni back to Northwestern. The Senior Associate Director will serve as a liaison to student life and diversity units on campus.

This position is posted on the website. If you have any questions or know of someone you think would be interested in the position, please reach out to me.
