CCCC is inviting applicants for the position of CCCC Policy Fellow for the 2014-15 academic year. This position will work with the CCCC/NCTE staff to help coordinate follow-through actions in support of reports filed by the CCCC state-based network of higher education policy analysts, and will provide research summaries and expert testimony/insights drawn from research and professional practice to public policy decision-makers about high priority higher education issues for CCCC and NCTE (these will be identified in consultation with the CCCC/NCTE Washington DC office and CCCC Chair).
The Policy Fellow will do the majority of their work on behalf of CCCC from their home institution, but will have funding (up to $5,000) to travel to Washington, D.C. a few times a year to make presentations, provide testimony, and work on specific initiatives. When appropriate, the Fellow will work with DC office staff to compose “calls to action” that might be issued to members in specific states where a strategic grassroots response from our community is needed. The Fellow will maintain ongoing contact with CCCC/NCTE executive staff leadership and will create reports about progress to-date for the CCCC Executive Committee to consider during their governance meetings in November and March.
CCCC will provide the Policy Fellow with a small honorarium ($3,000) and travel funds (up to $5,000) to help support the activities outlined above. The position is a one-year appointment (with the possibility of a second year renewal) beginning in July 2014 and ending June 30, 2015, and will be appointed by the CCCC Chair and Executive Secretary-Treasurer.
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, a CV, and any relevant published work to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 30, 2014. Interviews will take place in early June and applicants will be notified of their status by early July.
