Bates is one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges, with a long history of commitments to principles of human dignity and diversity.
Founded by abolitionists in 1855, Bates has been coeducational and has welcomed students regardless of race and ethnicity since its founding. The college’s commitment to academic excellence, intellectual exploration, inclusivity, and engaged citizenship defines its character.
Bates offers a rigorous and highly personalized education that centers on deep and sustained interactions among students, faculty, and community. Bates engages the forces — intellectual trends, demographic changes, and technology — that are transforming higher education and the world into which our students graduate.
Bates has about 2,000 students from a wide variety of backgrounds. The student body represents 44 states and 53 countries; approximately 23 percent are domestic students of color, 7 percent of students are international, and 13 percent of all students are first generation to college.
The College has 210 faculty members and 750 staff and administrative employees. As one of the top employers in the state, Bates recruits its faculty and staff nationally, regionally, and locally. They consist of diverse individuals with a broad range of intellectual, professional, and personal experience.
Bates is proud of its deep roots in the Lewiston/Auburn community, an urban center with a demographically diverse population of approximately 65,000 people. With a rich industrial past, Lewiston/ Auburn has seen great transition in the last 30 years and offers opportunities for cultural enrichment and meaningful community-engaged learning and leadership. Bates is located on a beautiful, 109-acre, traditional New England campus in Lewiston, a small city enjoying an exciting economic and cultural revitalization. Bates is 35 miles north of Portland, 140 miles north of Boston, and 340 miles north of New York City.
The Office of College Advancement, with counsel and support from the Board of Trustees, the Alumni Council, Bates Fund Executive Committee, and other key volunteers, develops a cohesive strategic plan for alumni engagement, fundraising, and marketing — one which is thoughtful, innovative, and resourceful, and which strengthens the bonds between constituents and the college. Engaged alumni are essential to the continued health and financial well-being of the college.
The associate director will support the college’s engagement and fundraising priorities by collaborating with the Assistant Vice President of Alumni Engagement and Communications and the Director of Annual Giving to create a comprehensive and cohesive strategy for communications across teams, as well as team-specific plans and ensure seamless integration with other advancement marketing efforts and communications.
Serving as primary point of contact and liaison to Bates Communications Office, the associate director will ensure that Annual Giving and Alumni Engagement communications maintain overarching college brand identity and adhere to strategy. This position acts as a project manager with keen attention to detail regarding timelines, revision processes, and adherence to deadlines for Advancement communications.
This is a full-time, 12 month position. Travel including day and overnight trips is required.
