Clemente Is Hiring an Executive Director
After almost 10 years, Lela Hilton is stepping down as Clemente's Executive Director in Summer 2023. Lela has guided and supported the 30+ Clemente Courses across the country through a time of expansion and change, including helping programs navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, developing the Clemente Veterans' Initiative, and launching our recent Inflection Points seminars for graduates. We are grateful for her vision and her years of service.
Clemente seeks a new Executive Director (ED) to lead the organization at a time when our mission could not be more critical. We are looking for a dynamic, entrepreneurial leader with demonstrated organizational and fundraising skills in higher education, public humanities, and nonprofits. Primary responsibilities include board development, donor relations, and fundraising efforts to support Clemente’s network of 30+ programs. The ideal Executive Director will be a self-directed strategic thinker with a proven track record in fundraising and working collaboratively with non-profit boards and staff.
The ED will lead a national team that supports local Clemente Courses to increase student success and support innovation, new programs, and initiatives developed through local, regional, and national partnerships. For more information or to apply, please see the full job description:
