The Associate Director of Student Life for Student Conduct is responsible for the oversight and administration of the University student conduct system. The Associate Director also provides direct supervision to three Assistant Directors, serves as a senior member of the on-call system, and, with the Director and peer Associate Directors, provides leadership and vision for the Office of Student Life in order to enhance the comprehensive development of students’ residential experience at Loyola. The Associate Director reports directly to the Director of Student Life.

Overseeing the University student conduct system, the Associate’s responsibilities include selecting and training hearing officers, assigning charges for administrative hearings, adjudicating high level cases including cases of sexual misconduct, serving as a Title IX investigator and advisor, and management of the student conduct database software. The Associate Director also provides support for compliance and produces detailed reports about the student conduct process. Because the Associate Director is part of a larger Student Life team, this position also provides a unique opportunity to develop skills in high-level crisis response, staff supervision, residential education, and housing operations.  In addition to supervising one Assistant Director for Student Conduct, this position also directly supervises two live-in Assistant Directors who are responsible for the day-to-day management of combined residential areas consisting of six Graduate Residence Coordinators (GRCs), 29 Resident Assistants (RAs) and 1,200 residents.  On a small, collaborative campus Associates may also be involved in campus-wide initiatives including serving as a Messina mentor – Loyola’s living learning initiative. Loyola University Maryland is a growing and supportive environment that enables practitioners to be creative in addressing a wide array of issues within a collaborative team-based atmosphere. We are seeking colleagues whose professional philosophies align with our dedication to the development of the whole person and the Jesuit values of inclusion, justice, community, and a constant challenge to improve.
