The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) seeks a passionate and experienced individual with a proven track record of effectively working with senior and executive leaders to help ensure the quality and enhance the experiences of ARL’s Learning programs and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives. This is a unique role for someone looking to make a difference in leading research library and archives institutions, and in shaping the research library and archives profession.

As part of the ARL staff and in consultation with the Association’s Learning Network Committee, the director, Learning, will be responsible for actively contributing to the design, delivery, and assessment of all of ARL’s Learning programs—including piloting the Intensive Learning Program in 2023; developing and implementing the ARL Institutes; providing tools and resources to advance the Association’s Learning and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) goals; and developing and managing a hybrid learning-delivery strategy.

In formulating strategies and implementing actions in support of the Association’s priorities, the director will work closely with the chair and vice-chair of the ARL Learning Network Committee along with the Learning + DEI team—senior director; director, DEI (to be hired in 2023); and program manager—as well as other members of the Association community.

This full-time position can be remote (based in the US); ARL has physical office space in Washington, DC, that is available to the director, Learning. ARL has a mobile-first strategy based on remote work, with in-person attendance expected at Association Meetings, in-person learning programs, and occasional staff meetings in Washington, DC. The salary range is US$125,000–135,000 commensurate with experience. ARL offers generous benefits.
