Director of Charles Drew Science Scholars Program at Michigan State - Job Posting #844940

Dear CER Colleagues,

The College of Natural Science (NatSci) at Michigan State University (MSU) invites applications for the next Director of the Charles Drew Science Scholars Program. Since its inception in 1979, the Charles Drew Science Scholars Program has provided comprehensive academic support within a living-learning community to high-achieving undergraduate students from populations historically underrepresented in science and mathematics. The Drew Program offers its members dedicated academic advising, academic coaching, career advising, and specialized programming, including two seminar courses, to foster academic and professional growth. Drew Scholars are active members of the MSU community, engaging in undergraduate research, peer mentorship, leadership in student organizations, and community service. Many Drew Scholars are also members of the Honors College. The program currently serves about 250 students pursuing majors in the College of Natural Science. NatSci’s recently published strategic plan set a goal of doubling the size of the incoming class of Drew Science Scholars to 120 students by 2025. The next Director will be a key partner in this expansion, providing leadership and vision to the process while continuing to foster an environment that supports diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

The Director will hold a 12-month, 100% appointment in the Academic Specialist Continuing System with salary commensurate with experience. Additional information about the position and submission of applications can be found at

Please share with your networks. Review of applications will begin on March 10, 2023.
