University of Notre Dame Looks to Hire LGBTQ Director

The University of Notre Dame's Office of Student Affairs has posted a job description for a new staff member who will focus on providing services and support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students and their allies.

The position, officially titled the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Student Initiatives Assistant Director, is listed under the Gender Relations Center (GRC).

The minimum qualifications for applicants include a bachelor’s degree ideally in theology, gender studies, psychology, sociology or a related field with three or more years in ministry or administration, the job description stated, and a master’s degree is a preferred qualification. The posting describes this staff member as having a special focus on students who identify as LGBTQ. Among their duties will be to train students as peer educators who can speak specifically to LGBTQ issues. 


The posting comes three months after the University announced a plan to establish a “new support and service organization” for LGBTQ students and their allies, a new advisory committee, and this full-time student development position.

Brian Coughlin, associate vice president for Student Affairs, told The Observer that the administration hopes to make a hire for the position no later than July 1.
