As a member of the college community with responsibilities to enable the achievement of college-wide strategic objectives, the Director will demonstrate the three core and three leadership capabilities identified in the College’s Capability Framework:

Focus on Students and Their Success (Core)
We all have a role to play in promoting and supporting students – directly or indirectly – contributing to their success, education and transition as they build their path to the future.

Cultural Alignment (Core)
Inclusion and respect align with Camosun’s traditions of lifelong learning and positive, supportive experiences for all. We examine our individual and institutional cultures and, through indigenization, consider other ways of knowing (thinking), being (approaches), doing (acting), and relating.

Fostering and Nurturing Relationships (Core)
Fostering and nurturing relationships is at the core of everything we do. Successful workplace relationships take time to develop and include building trust, engagement and collaboration.

Address College Needs (Leadership)
In order to address college needs leaders recognize and respond to the complex, diverse and interdependent components. Leaders inspire others to work individually and collaboratively to achieve departmental/divisional, college and sectoral goals.

Enable Self & Others (Leadership)
To better serve students and the college to achieve success, leaders enable self and others to take responsibility and to participate in learning and development opportunities.

Create Time and Space (Leadership)
To be at our best and achieve organizational goals, we need both time and space. Time and space as a unitary concept promotes opportunities to listen, plan, think, create, innovate and develop relationships.

Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Camosun College values diversity as a strength and strives to be an equitable and inclusive college community of students and employees. The College is an Equal Opportunity Employer that adheres to the BC Human Rights Code which protects against discrimination based on Indigenous identity, race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical and mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or age. The College also recognizes and honors UNDRIP, the TRC Calls to Actions and the BC Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples’ Act. Going beyond legislation, Camosun recognizes the historical and persistent inequities that many people of marginalized groups have faced in society and in the workplace. We seek to dismantle these barriers through systemic and institutional changes focused on strengthening inclusive hiring practices, accessibility and organizational culture. We recognize that moving towards more equitable communities is an ongoing and evolving journey - one which the College is committed to undertaking. Since Camosun plays an important role in creating change within communities, it is our hope that our employees reflect the diversity of our students and experience an inclusive and supportive work environment. Please contact Human Resources for more information.
