Full Time

Location: Washington DC

Position Summary:
This position has a two-fold purpose. It provides direct administrative support to the Executive Director of the Washington Center. In addition, it serves as a communication nexus for the Academic Program of the UC Washington Center (UCDC). In 2010 the Academic Program of the UC Washington Center (UCDC) began consolidating from individual UC campus academic programs into a system-wide academic program. This process is still on-going.

The UCDC system-wide academic program presently has 22 academic partners. This includes the initial nine academic year UC campus academic programs that were the focus of the consolidation but has since grown to include UC summer UCDC programs and a number of non-UC campus programs (for example, University of Michigan). Among the as yet unresolved issues of the consolidation is the coordination of information that passes between UCDC and UC campus programs, non-UC campus programs, UCDC students, UCDC visiting faculty and even among the local UCDC academic administration staff. A significant aspect of this position will be wrangling the various lines of communications with an eye towards regularizing the flow of information and streamlining to avoid duplication and coordinating delivery of a consistent message to all UCDC academic program constituencies.

Job Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience.

  • 3-5 years of experience of progressive administrative experience performing a range of program support and administrative activities.

  • Excellent written communication skills for preparing and/or editing various documents and reports, including excellent spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

  • Excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to diffuse charged situations, treat people respectfully, and communicate clearly and succinctly.

  • Thorough knowledge in administrative procedures and processes including word processing, spreadsheet and database applications.

  • Substantial administrative experience, including with purchasing, meeting preparation, calendaring, and special event planning.

  • Ability to follow policies and exercise good judgment, tact, and diplomacy in handling sensitive and confidential information.

  • Experience supporting fundraising efforts.
