The primary responsibility of this position is to build relationships and network with key stakeholders at Universities and requires meeting with these stakeholders in person which is why a NJ local is required.

Description: Role and Responsibilities

JerseySTEM partners with Colleges and Universities in New Jersey in order to recruit college students in STEM program to coach middle schoolers (networking with Dean/STEM professors), to build relationships with the schools to provide us with Interns (Career Service networking), and to create JerseySTEM clubs at the colleges. In New Jersey, 60 campuses offer STEM programs and college students are the only type of a coach we recruit for and therefore, the relationship with campuses is crucial in ensuring the success of our after-school clubs to middle schoolers.

The role of the Vice President of University Relations is to develop a network of connections with different stakeholders in these universities and manage a group of volunteers (Campus Liaisons) who represent JerseySTEM on campus to recruit college students. Your role as a Manager will mean that you will be responsible for building your team (working with HR to recruit) and assigning tasks and engaging your volunteers (in JIRA). Your role is to oversee a team of volunteers and make sure they have priorities and have a schedule to follow and are meeting with campuses in their assigned areas. Their role as volunteers is to manage the day to day at the campus while your role is to oversee and project manage. In addition, you will hold weekly meetings with your team and hold monthly meetings with the Management team.

JerseySTEM's target is to develop activities in 10 Campuses in 2018/2019, 20 Campuses in 2019/2020... Therefore, this role directly impacts our ability to have college coaches (no coaches = no clubs), and our ability to meet our goal of specific site numbers which would result in 25,000 middle schoolers taught STEM by 2025.

Essential Duties:

- Define and manage organizational structure (create your organizational chart, establish weekly meetings with team, KPIs...)

- Reach out and initiate connections with College administration, faculty, student groups

-Manage your team (onboard/offboard your team, hold them accountable, work with HR to recruit...)

-Interview with potential volunteers

- Define a calendar of events for the Campus Liaison to handle

- Support the Campus Liaison in the first presentations about JerseySTEM to stakeholders

- Monitor the Campus Liaison by doing calls or having a reporting structure
