New International Affairs Forum Director position

NMC’s Human Resources department has posted a 1/2 time position for Director of the International Affairs Forum (IAF). NMC and the IAF have been working during the last year on an organizational merger that would formalize our support for the program. Funding for this program will come from a combination of IAF funds and NMC’s Strategic Fund over the next three years as the program’s business model develops under this new format. The new position will report to the Vice President for Lifelong and Professional Learning during this development period.

This is a great opportunity to continue the growth of NMC’s global initiatives. Please contact Marguerite Cotto at with any questions. Learn more about and apply for the position here.
