In Search of a New Director of the Quaker Leadership Scholars Program

Friends Center at Guilford College is hiring for the Director of the Quaker Leadership Scholars Program

QLSP” is an almost 30 year old scholarship program that seeks to apprentice participants to the Quaker tradition, for the purpose of living spiritually-rooted, racially just, theologically robust, and experientially prepared lives as leaders within and outside of the Religious Society of Friends. 

I see QLSP as one of Guilford’s crown jewels; the Director for the Program will ensure that it remains a compelling and effective program in the coming years. 

This is a full-time, 12 month position. The hired candidate , who would work closely with me, Wess Daniels, at Friends Center, should be a Quaker or have a deep spiritual groundedness and clear working knowledge of Quakerism in order to teach and honor the Quaker tradition. They should have experience teaching college-age students, guiding robust programming, working on current social justice related issues, and a passion for caring, working with, and guiding the spiritual, emotional, mental aspects of students’ lives  through their college career. 

The application is open until early August and we hope to hire in the fall. Please consider if there is someone you know who would be a good fit for the job. A Master’s degree or comparable years of experience being required.
