The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), a research, policy and advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening and advancing the work of public universities in the US, Canada and Mexico, is seeking an Assistant Director to serve as the Project Manager of the Aspire Alliance and develop, support and coordinate a national faculty change network focused on developing inclusive and diverse STEM faculty.
