Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.




Director for the Office of Title IX and Equal Opportunity Worcester, MA

The College of the Holy Cross (College), a Catholic, Jesuit liberal arts college, seeks an experienced and highly collaborative individual to serve as its Director of the Office of Title IX and Equal Opportunity (Director). The Director reports to the Vice President for Administration and Finance and joins an institution committed to progressing the College’s Title IX and anti-discrimination efforts. The ideal individual will be a proven leader and strong collaborator with in-depth Title IX experience in higher education, and experience developing strategic communication efforts and forging partnerships at a mission-driven institution of similar size and complexity.

One of the nation’s leading liberal arts institutions, Holy Cross offers an academically rigorous, personalized undergraduate education in the Jesuit tradition. Founded in 1843 on a hill overlooking the city of Worcester, Holy Cross has a picturesque campus that is home to 3,100 students in a warm community that values intelligence, passion, discernment, and civic engagement. Under the leadership of Rev. Philip Boroughs, S.J., who became president in 2012, the College is poised for even greater levels of excellence.

The Director will be responsible for the oversight and management of the College’s Title IX and Equal Opportunity efforts. The Director will join the campus at an auspicious moment in the College’s history, as this office is being redesigned and reconfigured to meet the changing needs on the campus. This Director will oversee both Title IX and Equal Opportunity with a staffing increase from two to six full time professionals, including investigators and administrative support. The office will be charged with cultivating a campus climate that is safe and inclusive and aligned with the mission of the College, where students are challenged to answer the question, “What are our obligations to one another?” 

Rebecca Kennedy is leading this search with Sydney Giller and Jenna Sattar Kwiatek.
