The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) invites applications and nominations for the position of Associate Director of the Kentucky Student Success Collaborative (KYSSC), a new organization that will work with higher education institutions in the state to advance and support efforts to improve student outcomes. CPE, in partnership with the James Graham Brown Foundation, created KYSSC to advance large-scale change and help equip institutions with the tools and techniques needed to drive transformation and improvement. KYSSC will work to increase degrees and greater career readiness for all students but with an emphasis on students of low-income status, first-generation students, and students of color.

The Associate Director is responsible for developing and implementing plans aligned to KYSSC strategic goals and objectives. The ideal candidate is a dynamic self-starter who possesses superior organizational and operational skills and is interested in contributing to the growth of a new organization within an existing agency. This position will also support the CPE’s strategic agenda, which guides state efforts to enhance the health and well-being of Kentucky’s citizens and economy through increased educational attainment. The Associate Director will report directly to the Executive Director of the KYSSC and work in close collaboration with CPE leadership staff and the KYSSC Advisory Committee.

The KYSSC currently is funded for three years; however, it is expected to be funded long-term through external funding and/or through existing state resources.
