The Washington College of Law’s Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law Seeks Program Coordinator

As part of Washington College of Law’s (WCL) long-standing commitment to international human rights and to the rule of law, WCL established the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (“the Center”) in 1990 to work with students, faculty and the international legal community to provide scholarship and support for human rights initiatives around the world. The Center has a robust program of activity, sponsoring approximately 50 programs, conferences, workshops and trainings per year in addition to an array of grant-funded projects and various initiatives on human rights in the United States.

The Program Coordinator is a key member of the team who helps to hold all of the pieces together and to get the word out about WCL’s many programs and activities.  The position is perfect for a recent university graduate with marketing, communications and event planning experience and a commitment to international human rights.

The ideal candidate is someone who works well in a team but will step up, move projects ahead, ask questions and “take the next step.”  S/he has excellent English writing skills (really excellent!) and is comfortable focusing and transmitting information through a variety of platforms (e.g., website, listserv, social media, grant report writing, newsletters, internal administrative reports, etc.).

The Program Coordinator will help to manage Center volunteers and research assistants, and will work with a variety of people on a range of projects.  S/he will also provide important administrative support. The position will grow with the right person.  Flexibility, attention to detail, sense of humor and dedication to the Center’s vision are all crucial attributes for the right candidate!

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
