Working under and reporting to the Honors Director, the Honors Administrator (HA) has both administrative and academic responsibilities. On the administrative level, the HA assists with many aspects of the logistics of running the Honors Program. These duties include, but are not limited to, course scheduling; planning for and administration of extra- and co-curricular student activities (e.g., orientation activities, academic events, cultural events and outings, travel arrangements for Honors conferences and invited speakers, admissions events); and support for faculty teaching in the Program (e.g., scheduling meetings and supporting cooperation among the seminars). With respect to the admissions process, the HA will be responsible for coordinating the work of the Admissions Committee with the Admissions office, and at the stage of recruiting, for mobilizing current students to help with recruitment of prospective students.

The more creative and independent work of the HA will include building a database of internship and study abroad opportunities and contacts; establishing and maintaining the Honors Program web presence (including working with current Honors students to keep the Honors Facebook page updated); and facilitating the Program’s efforts to build a productive alumni outreach and mentorship network. The HA assists the Director with national projects of the AJCU Honors network and other special projects. The HA also assists the director in coordinating Honors activities with the development office, career services, the office of Mission and Ministry and the newly-formed Center for Community Engaged Learning.


The ideal candidate will have exceptional organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills, as well as the ability to balance many tasks at the same time. The candidate should also have the ability to do academic research and produce written work of superior quality. Experience with standard software programs (such as Word and Excel) and facility with Internet research tools is required, as is a willingness to work outside of regular business hours on student and alumni events.

The ideal candidate is a GSAS doctoral student who has an interest in academic administration. The position will follow the schedule of a GSAS graduate assistant as detailed on the GSAS Academic Calendar located here.
