DIRECTOR OF GLOBAL SAFETY AND SECURITY University of Nebraska - Lincoln Office of Global Strategies
UNL’s core mission as a comprehensive, land-grant, research university calls for a commitment to teach, conduct research, and serve Nebraska. Our enrollments and graduation rates have increased and will continue to do so in the next decade; our international partnerships are robust and span all continents; our research output is impressive and representative of the faculty’s broad reach, and education abroad programming for faculty, staff, and students has grown significantly over the past years.
UNL is on an upward trajectory with regard to its global engagement efforts. We are expanding UNL’s visibility and impact abroad and we continue to prepare students for an ever-increasing labor market that demands intercultural competence. This year alone, UNL accounted for over 980 faculty members traveling abroad to conduct research, teach, or collaborate with institutional partners; more than 1,000 students studied and volunteered abroad; we have hosted close to 500 international scholars; and 3000 international students are now part of our campus community.
With the current and projected growth, UNL is now poised to recruit a Director of Global Safety and Security (DGSS) who will play a key role in leading the coordination of all activities related to international health, safety, and security, and will serve as the chair of a campus-wide risk assessment committee. The position will co-develop and implement with colleagues across the institution the necessary institutional infrastructure to ensure a systematic approach to risk mitigation by promoting the safety and success of all UNL’s academic and business travelers and international students/scholars on campus. The DGSS will report to the Associate Vice Chancellor for International Engagement and Global Strategies. View requisition S_170247 at http://employment.unl.edu for complete details and to apply.
