NC State Women's Center
Position No. 00101403
Hiring Range: $62,000 - 70,000
Job Location: Raleigh, NC
Primary Function of Organizational Unit
The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible, and diverse intellectual and cultural campus experience at North Carolina State University (NC State). The OIED facilitates and supports efforts to ensure equity and equal opportunity, offers diversity education and training, and promotes inclusive excellence among students, faculty, and staff. There are four OIED units: Campus Community Centers; Inclusive Excellence and Strategic Practice; Equal Opportunity and Equity; and Bias Impact Response. Under the guidance of the Vice Provost for Institutional Equity, who also serves as the university's Title IX Coordinator, these units collaborate to ensure accountability to compliance, policy, and community care standards. They also monitor and respond to campus climate needs, facilitate equity and inclusion assessment, education, and training, and support underrepresented and marginalized identity groups within the NC State community.
The Campus Community Centers are a unit within the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity. The Campus Community Centers are comprised of the African American Cultural Center, LGBTQ Pride Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Women's Center. Our community efforts play a role in increasing the participation, retention, and success of students, faculty, and staff from historically underrepresented groups. Together, creating a community that provides a unified, campus-wide approach ensures that students, faculty, and staff learn and work within a campus defined by the best practices in equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging.
The Women's Center
Thanks to years of advocacy from students, faculty and staff across the institution, NC State founded the Women's Center in 1991. Since its founding, the Women's Center has worked to create culture change for gender and equity, affirm all identities, and cultivate connections and relationships across campus and in the community. Through examining links between systemic issues and individual actions, and creating spaces for dialogue intended to develop students' ability to explore assumptions and beliefs, the Women's Center aims to transform this education into personal, local and global action. The mission of the Women's Center is to build and create a community of authentic and engaged allies and leaders to pursue gender equity individually and collectively; enhancing the campus climate through education, advocacy, support, and leadership development.
The Women's Center directly serves all students at NC State while also serving as a resource, connection, and partner for faculty and staff at the institution. We take an intersectional and trauma-informed approach to serving the campus community. The Women's Center Associate Director for IPV Services reports to the Director of the Women's Center.
