This role offers a variety of work, including event and programming management where you will identify event spaces, identify and engage speakers, manage email marketing promotions, coordinate event schedules and itineraries, and provide onsite event support when it's go-time. We are doing some fun things here in Alumni Relations and this role will also help us with a variety of projects that involve research, volunteer engagement, and working and collaborating with many other colleagues across the division. Working closely with our Senior Director of Volunteer Engagement, you will help prepare them for meetings, presentations, and events and help to provide space management support for your Alumni Relations colleagues. We can promise that this role will provide challenges, collaborations with colleagues and partners, and opportunities to celebrate accomplishments.
