A note from Ashley Fenn
Associate at McKinsey

The Ohio State University PhD, Neuroscience, ’14

Harvard Medical School, Postdoc, Immunology, ‘17

I pursued a PhD and postdoctoral training to contribute to our scientific understanding and make a difference in the world. I felt my research was exciting and pushing my field forward, but did not see immediate impact and felt constrained by what I could study. At McKinsey I see immediate impact in the businesses I work with and experience a diversity of industries and functions. We work on some of the most challenging, urgent issues in business that have an immediate effect on our clients and the global market. I’m excited to tell you more about our work during our campus visit!

Hiring- University of Dayton- Executive Director- Human Rights Center

The Human Rights Center at The University of Dayton, College of Arts & Sciences

Executive Director Dayton, OH

The University of Dayton (UD) seeks a collaborative and strategic leader to serve as the Executive Director of the University’s Human Rights Center (HRC). This is an exceptional opportunity for an innovative leader to advance an interdisciplinary human rights research and advocacy center that represents a major priority for the University.

UD enrolls 10,882 students, including 8,095 full-time undergraduates, is one of the nation’s largest Catholic universities, and is the largest private university in Ohio. A Catholic Marianist institution, UD provides education to develop the whole student and is committed to experiential learning. The University comprises five academic units: the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Business Administration, Education and Health Sciences, Engineering, and Law. It is also the home of the nationally-recognized University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI). The next Executive Director joins UD at an important moment in its history. Eric F. Spina, Ph.D., formerly the vice chancellor and provost at Syracuse University, became the 19th president of UD in 2016. President Spina arrived with an ambitious agenda and has spent his first year bringing the historically collaborative community together in a visioning process that has positioned the University for years to come. He identified human rights as a key strategic priority in that vision and the Executive Director will be an influential leader across campus and the Dayton community on these issues. In addition, he called for UD to pay special attention to opportunities where human rights and sustainability researchers can work together to advance the common good. The Executive Director will play a critical role in ensuring the centrality of human rights across the University. A visible leader for the HRC both on- and off-campus, the Executive Director will advance the center’s mission to promote respect for the inherent dignity of all persons through dialogue, research and education. The Executive Director will join a talented and dedicated team that is deeply engaged with teaching, research, service, and advancing the mission of the Human Rights Center across campus. Contingent on qualifications, the Executive Director may be appointed at a tenured faculty rank (associate or full professor) in the appropriate academic department at the University of Dayton. The successful candidate will possess a Ph.D. or other terminal degree, administrative experience in higher education or in an advocacy or development organization, as well as a strong record of research activity or leading research activity in human rights or development. The candidate must demonstrate success leading teams in advancing multiple organizational priorities, and the ability to secure extramural funding for human rights or development projects. Tim McFeeley is leading this search with Brian Nwachukwu. The University of Dayton, founded in 1850 by the Society of Mary, is a top ten Catholic research university. The University seeks outstanding, diverse faculty and staff who value its mission and share its commitment to academic excellence in teaching, research and artistic creativity, the development of the whole person, and leadership and service in the local and global community.  To attain its Catholic and Marianist mission, the University is committed to the principles of diversity, inclusion and affirmative action and to equal opportunity policies and practices. As an Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer we will not discriminate against minorities, females, protected veterans, individuals with disabilities, or on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
