Director - Emily Taylor Center
Position Overview
As a premier international research university, the University of Kansas is committed to an open, diverse and inclusive learning and workplace environment. One that nurtures the growth and development of all its constituencies, regardless of varied backgrounds, cultures and social identities. KU holds steadfast in the belief that an array of values, interests, experiences, and intellectual and cultural viewpoints enrich learning and our workplace. The promotion of and support for a diverse and inclusive community of mutual respect require the engagement of the entire university.

The Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity (ETC) has a rich historical history at KU. The Emily Taylor Center was established in 1974, a time when women’s centers were springing up around the country to address inequities women faced in higher education. Unlike many centers, which were created as a result of student activism, KUs was established to continue the work of former KU Dean of Women, Dr. Emily Taylor, the Center’s namesake. Today, the center aims to challenge the status quo and promote gender equity. Feminism and social justice are central to the efforts of the ETC.

The Director of ETC will be expected to strategically build upon its legacy and enhance the Center’s local, regional, and national profile and presence. As part of this effort, the Director must assume responsibility as part of a larger collaborative of Diversity and Equity offices to strengthen equity and inclusion at KU. Further, the Director of the ETC should possess the ability to understand and articulate women's needs and concerns from a perspective that includes the intersections of gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity and other aspects of individual and socio-cultural identities.

The Director works with advisory groups, faculty, staff, students and community partners to create programs that support undergraduate and graduate students and serves as a women and gender equity resource for the broader campus community. The Director represents the ETC in campus-wide committees, and off-campus community. The Director works cooperatively with Directors of other Diversity and Equity units: Office of Multicultural Affairs, Sexuality and Gender Diversity Center, Jayhawk Student One Stop, and others as appropriate.
