Job Description:

We are seeking people who recognize the critical role community colleges play in social justice, who have ability in this space, enthusiasm for this work, ideas and vision to improve our approaches, and a commitment to achieving equitable academic success for the 50,000+ students attending our five beautiful colleges and centers. Our social justice work calls for employees who have a sense of social responsibility, interest in our community and world in which we live.The intention of social justice work is to strengthen humanity by understanding that every person deserves the benefits of fully participating in our society and institutions.Academic researchers have illustrated that crucial social justice principles are a compilation of equality, equity, diversity, inclusion, engagement, environmental sustainability and human rights. These complex principles are challenging to operationalize in higher education; yet, we are steadfast in our diligence to forge ahead to advance this vital mission.Community colleges are uniquely positioned to lead higher education in the work of social justice. Many of our students come from historically underserved and underrepresented backgrounds; students of color, students with recent immigrant histories, students from cycles of low income if not poverty, students from indigenous communities, and students from first-generation families.The idea of promoting social mobility through education is unconditionally and uncompromisingly embraced by community colleges. This is an exciting role, and it comes with a heavy responsibility. Simply put, we need to create environments where our students achieve greater academic success, so much so that we close our persistent equity/opportunity gaps.If you are committed to social and racial justice and if you are interested in joining a community dedicated to solving these inequities through education, please apply.Recruitment Type: - Temporary/Hourly Assignment (Internal and External applicants)Location - Diablo Valley CollegePosting Number - 0001776# of Openings - 1Range - 62Salary - $25.17/hourPosition Status - TemporaryOvertime Status - Non-Exempt (eligible)Position - Part-TimeIf temporary, employment duration: - N/A# of Hours Scheduled Per Week - 40Work Schedule By Day and Work Hours - Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. with some evenings and weekendsShift Differential % - N/A# of Months - 12Non-work Periods: - N/AEEO Job Category - Technical/ParaprofessionalEmployee Group - ClassifiedDepartment - D1050-Student LifePosition Definition - To plan, coordinate, develop, implement and facilitate student support or instructional services for an assigned program in order to attract, retain and support a diverse population of students.Distinguishing Characteristics - This classification is distinguished from the senior level in that it is responsible for the day-to-day operation of a single program area as opposed to multiple or larger, complex student support or instructional programs.Examples of Duties/Essential Functions - Duties may include, but are not limited to, the following: Provides overall direction and guidance to the day-to-day operations, problem solving and decision making regarding an assigned program; implements program policies and directives according to District, federal or State guidelines.
