The Vice President will be responsible for the overall leadership and performance of a comprehensive advancement program for the District directing the areas of Public and Governmental Relations, Marketing and Communications; Development and Alumni Relations; Grants; and Special Events. The Vice President will empower and direct an effective and cohesive team that sets and fulfills clear, ambitious, and achievable goals including the formulation of policies and programs that grow the financial and human investment in the District and further enhance its culture of philanthropy.

MiraCosta College fosters the academic and holistic success of its diverse learners within a caring and equitable environment to strengthen the educational, economic, cultural, and social well-being of the communities it serves. MiraCosta College achieves this mission through innovative teaching, learning, and support services, and by offering degree, certificate, career education, adult education, transfer, and life-long learning opportunities. The MiraCosta Community College District includes Oceanside, Carlsbad, Leucadia, Encinitas, Olivenhain, Rancho Santa Fe, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar, Carmel Valley, and parts of Camp Pendleton. The student population in the credit program is approximately 20,000. MiraCosta College is committed to providing a strong, supportive, and authentic environment where difference is valued, respected, encouraged, and honored; where all faculty, staff, and students experience a sense of belonging and the freedom to express themselves; and where their experiences are recognized and valued. MiraCosta College strives to be a model for equity and inclusion.

The MiraCosta College Foundation’s mission is to promote the benefits of the College and secure resources that transform lives in the community. Over the past five years, the Foundation has more than doubled contributions to the College, which in turn tripled the number of students who receive scholarships and doubled private resources that support campus programs. One of the Foundation’s priorities is the MiraCosta Promise, which will subsidize tuition for all first-time, full-time college students to attend MiraCosta College for two years. College affordability and student support are primary drivers for the foundation.

Graduation from an accredited four-year college or university with a bachelor’s degree, and at least five years of experience in one or more of the following: institutional advancement, fundraising, or communications and marketing, including two years of supervisory experience is required for this position.  A master’s degree is preferred. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission and values of MiraCosta College as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.
