Deerfield Academy seeks a dynamic and experienced Associate Director of Multicultural Recruitment & Admission to start on August 15, 2021. We seek applicants who care deeply about students, work collaboratively with their colleagues, and are sincerely committed to developing an inclusive community. As a private boarding school, Deerfield offers an outstanding working environment, rich benefits, and students who are motivated to learn. Reporting to the Senior Associate Director of Admission/Director of Multicultural Recruitment, and in collaboration with the team of admission officers, the Associate Director of Multicultural Recruitment will attract, recruit, and enroll each year’s cohort of students, with a primary emphasis on students of color, in service of the Academy’s mission.
Deerfield offers an unmatched environment for teaching. Near the Five Colleges (Amherst, Smith, Mount Holyoke, Hampshire, and UMass Amherst), Deerfield’s 300-acre campus hosts exceptional facilities that enable powerful teaching both in and out of the classroom. Our students are engaging and excited to learn—and they are willing to work hard at their studies. Outside the classroom, our community is focused on active and ethical living.
Our teachers are committed to ongoing renewal. We seek candidates who are genuinely committed to their own growth, who are eager to work with colleagues to review the programs we offer, and who can model critical thinking, empathy, and determination in our students. As a boarding school, our faculty teach, mentor, and model—in the classroom, in the dorm, at the dining hall, and on the playing field.
Diversity is essential to Deerfield’s success. Diverse perspectives within our school population fuel creative and innovative thinking, build empathy, and provide varied skills and experiences from which the entire community can benefit. Deerfield actively seeks candidates who are members of or support traditionally underrepresented groups—especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, and educational background.
