The McLean County Museum of History, located in historic Downtown Bloomington, IL, is one of America’s premier county historical museums. In 2020, the Museum was recognized with the Award of Excellence by the American Association of State and Local History (AASLH)—one of the highest recognitions of excellence in our field. The Museum’s mission is rooted in education, and it has built a reputation for delivering high quality, thought provoking, and inclusive exhibits and programs to our growing, diverse community. As a result of a very successful capital campaign, the Museum was able to expand its Education Department by a third full-time educator in 2014.
The Museum is currently seeking to hire a full-time Director of Adult Education to work directly with the Director of Community Education and Director of Youth and Family Education to reimagine and support adult and older adult programs and outreach, furthering the educational mission of the Museum as a whole.
The successful candidate would ideally begin working no later than April 1, 2021. Salary range is $37,000-$45,000 depending on experience. Competitive benefits package included.
The Museum’s Education Department consists of three full-time staff members (Director of Community Education, Director of Adult Education, and Director of Youth and Family Education). Each position is responsible for serving the needs of its primary audiences through the development and implementation of educational programming, but is expected to work collaboratively to develop department goals, grow and foster new relationships with community groups and schools, and share in the day-to-day operations of managing the department and its budget.
The Director of Adult Education is responsible for researching, developing, presenting, and overseeing educational programs for adult and older adult learners. This individual will work collaboratively with the Director of Community Education and Director of Youth and Family Education to develop mission-driven, public programming inspired by the Museum’s exhibits, collections, and other operations, as well as daily departmental duties. Accountable to fellow Directors of Education, this individual will report to the Executive Director.
Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):
Send résumé, cover letter, and three professional references to Executive Director at email@example.com by February 15, 2021.
