“The Executive Director is a senior level staff position. The Executive Director may be appointed at a tenured faculty rank (associate or full professor) contingent on qualifications that meet the College of Arts and Sciences criteria for tenure and promotion. These expectations include demonstrated achievement as a teacher, sustained record of professional activity and service to the field of human rights, broadly defined. Additionally, the Executive Director seeking a tenured faculty appointment will need to meet the tenure and promotion criteria of the academic department most relevant to his or her scholarship and advocacy.

The Executive Director of the Human Rights Center leads an executive committee composed of the Director of Human Rights Research, the Director of the Human Rights Studies Program, select faculty affiliates and representatives from other offices. The Executive Director also convenes (typically biannually) the Human Rights Advisory Council, composed of human rights scholars and advocates and key external partners for broader strategic guidance. Given the strategic importance of the HRC to the College of Arts and Sciences, the Executive Director reports to the Associate Dean for Interdisciplinary Research and Experiential Initiatives in the College of Arts and Sciences.”
