The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Binghamton University in the search for an Executive Director of Alumni Engagement.

The Executive Director of Alumni Engagement is responsible for developing and implementing a comprehensive engagement program designed to provide meaningful opportunities for volunteerism, service, personal and professional development, and events and programs for alumni to enhance loyalty, dedication, and support for Binghamton University.

Binghamton University is a world-class institution that unites more than 130 broadly interdisciplinary educational programs with some of the most vibrant research in the nation. Its unique character shaped by outstanding academics, facilities, and community life promotes extraordinary student success. As part of the State University of New York (SUNY) System, it is one of four doctoral granting university centers.

Binghamton merges rigorous academics, distinguished faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities to engage and challenge its 17,000 students. The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college-goers to international students. Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration, and community service.

The Binghamton University Alumni Association is nearly as old as the University itself. The Harpur College Alumni Association elected its first officers in 1951, following the first Commencement. As Harpur College grew and became a part of the State University of New York, the Alumni Association grew and today serves as the umbrella organization for a number of alumni groups and activities.

The mission of the Binghamton University Alumni Association is to reach, serve, and engage all Binghamton alumni. The Association connects alumni to the University and to each other, provides valued service, and supports the University's mission of teaching, research, and service. It does so by encouraging collaboration and inclusiveness, continuing the tradition of excellence and building pride.

The Office of Alumni Engagement supports the Alumni Association, working on behalf of its board of directors, an all-volunteer policy-setting body. The Association represents more than 124,000 alumni, and is a non-dues paying organization. All graduates automatically become members and are entitled to the quality services and activities provided by the association.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least five years of successful experience in alumni relations, which includes an acknowledged work history showing creative productivity. Higher education experience is preferred. Experience in public relations or a related field in which the candidate can demonstrate a successful track record will be considered.

All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé.
