Position Title: Academic Programs Coordinator
Reports to: University of Global Health Equity, Academic Director
Location: Kigali, Rwanda
University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is a new kind of university focused on training the next generation of global leaders in health care delivery. The university launched in Rwanda in September 2015 with its flagship degree program: the Master of Science in Global Health Delivery (MGHD). Through an academic experience uniquely rooted in the values of equity, students are empowered to both ease suffering at the bedside and drive transformational, systemic changes to the health system.
UGHE is an initiative of Partners In Health (PIH), an internationally recognized non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. In over nearly three decades of operating alongside public sectors in countries around the world, PIH has developed a model to deliver high quality healthcare to some of the world’s most marginalized communities. Nowhere has this impact been more profound than in Rwanda, where Inshuti Mu Buzima—PIH’s sister organization—and our government partners have driven innovation for a decade.
Members of the UGHE community are tenacious and resolute in our drive to attain social justice, make common cause with those in need, listen to and learn from others, and operate with honesty and humility as we uphold academic integrity and intellectual curiosity. The University of Global Health Equity seeks individuals committed to these values to join the team.
The Academic Programs Coordinator will provide high level support to the MGHD, and UGHE’s diverse executive education programs. Working closely with the Teaching and Learning Team, the Academic Programs Coordinator will undertake project management and support the admissions process as well as the development, execution, monitoring, and reporting of the MGHD and executive education programs.
The ideal candidate for this position is someone who is highly self-motivated and passionate about higher education and global health with superior attention to detail and organizational skills. The Academic Programs Coordinator will have experience with a wide range of academic and administrative tasks, have the ability to work independently as well as part of a team, and have mastered effective communication. The Academic Programs Coordinator will interact with staff at all levels and across offices, as well as important external constituents. S/he must be exceedingly well organized, diplomatic, flexible, resourceful, and proactive. The Academic Programs Coordinator must exhibit great discretion, handle confidential matters with the utmost care, and possess a high level of sophistication in managing complex issues.
