About the organization

Founded in 2008 and located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, Asian University for Women is the first of its kind: a regional institution dedicated to women’s education and leadership development. AUW exists solely to support a rising network of women leaders, entrepreneurs, and change makers from across the region. It seeks out women who have significant academic potential, demonstrate courage and a sense of outrage at injustice, and are empathic to the woes of other people.

Students from 19 countries attend AUW. More than 85% of AUW students are on full or near-full scholarships funded by donors from around the world. A majority of AUW graduates secure employment in the private and public sectors of their home countries, while about 25% go on to pursue graduate studies at elite institutions including Oxford, Stanford, Columbia, New York University, Surrey, SOAS, and Ewha, among others.

Duties

Asian University for Women (AUW) is an internationally recognized residential university located in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Women from 19 countries around the world attend AUW. In 2019, AUW inaugurated its Summer School to boost the educational experience of the brightest secondary school students in Bangladesh through an intense 5-week program focused on Math, Physics and Statistics. While the Science Summer School will continue, a parallel summer school in the Humanities is also planned. Both programs will draw on international faculty and use remote delivery of intellectual resources as well.

AUW now seeks a Director of the Summer School who, working alongside an administrative assistant, will be responsible for all aspects of planning -- academic, administrative, admissions -- of the Summer School under the guidance of AUW Vice Chancellor and the Asian University for Women Support Foundation.

The Summer School Director will start January 2020.
