If you look at the job description posted for the educational leadership consultant (ELC) position, you may notice some differences from years past. This coming year, the ELC program turns its focus toward education and leadership, which will complement the overall college student experience rather than just the member experience.
Our goal is to give our members more transferable skills that can help them in the various roles they have as students, whether it be as aspiring leaders at their place of work and/or within their student organizations, Theta, or life in general.
Depending on what the chapter requests or needs, the ELC’s visit could focus on leadership training and coaching; goal-setting; professional development; scholarship; diversity, equity, & inclusion; career planning; or wellness. In staying true to the nature of consulting, each visit might look a little different. Some ELCs might present workshops or troubleshoot issues within their committees or chapter, or both! We are planning for both in-person and virtual visits depending on the safety of travel and gatherings concerning COVID-19. ELCs will be prepared to do both and be flexible if circumstances change throughout the year. For help with Theta-specific issues, chapters will continue to utilize their advisors, district directors, and headquarters staff.
No specific undergraduate majors or chapter positions are required to become an ELC. Anyone interested in applying should review the job description and submit their materials by Sunday, January 10, 2021. Please email ELCprogram@kappaalphatheta.org with any questions.
The ELC Program is sponsored by a grant from Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation.
