Summer CLS Resident Director Jobs in South Korea


American Councils for International Education is currently hiring short-term Resident Directors for the Critical Language Scholarship’s Korean summer 2018 immersion programs.


Resident Directors are the first-level of support for CLS students for the duration of the program. The Resident Director supports student success by ensuring the health and safety of the participants. Resident Directors report to the DC office weekly and are expected to communicate regularly with their DC-based Program Officer, particularly if adjustment, health, or safety issues occur.


The CLS in-country partner is responsible for administering the academic curriculum. Therefore, the Resident Director position is a non-teaching position. The approximate dates of the program are mid- June to mid-August. Resident Directors also attend a mandatory 3 day training in Washington, D.C. during May.


Competitive applicants will have demonstrated student support experience for undergraduate and/or graduate students, or experience leading or supporting a study abroad or language immersion program. Applicants must have advanced proficiency in Korean. Application review will begin on January 1, 2018 and continue until each position is filled.
