About California Institute of Integral Studies:
California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) is an internationally recognized leader in integral education. CIIS strives to embody spirit, intellect, and wisdom in service of individuals, communities, and the earth. CIIS has an enrollment of over 1,600 students pursuing degrees in a variety of academic programs in its schools of Consciousness and Transformation, Professional Psychology and Health, and Undergraduate Studies.
CIIS is a mosaic of faces and philosophies, backgrounds, and beliefs. Like our faculty and staff, students are intellectually engaged and socially active. Each day brings new experiences that broaden horizons and hone critical thinking. Programs, both inside the classroom and throughout the campus, inspire creativity, nurture community, cultivate curiosity, and foster social good. In addition, CIIS hosts a vibrant art exhibition program and offers a dynamic array of events through its Public Programs & Performances division, including workshops, concerts, and conferences. The University provides low- cost mental health and acupuncture services to the San Francisco Bay Area through its 8 award-winning counseling and acupuncture clinics. CIIS is accredited by the Western Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).
CIIS strives to cultivate and preserve a culture of inclusion and belonging as part of its Seven Commitments. More than accept difference, we honor and celebrate our staff’s diversity of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status. In turn, our diverse and inclusive culture brings us together in ways that empower everyone to connect, belong, and grow.
The Sustainability Manager will provide leadership in fulfilling CIIS’ fifth commitment to “advocate sustainability and social justice.” In keeping with this commitment and with current best practices in higher education, the Sustainability Manager will partner across constituencies, divisions, and departments to develop, initiate, and coordinate a university-wide program of ecological sustainability practices and initiatives. They will also work toward centralizing and making visible–to both internal and external audiences–the research, teaching, and activism in the areas of sustainability and ecological justice that are already happening at CIIS. By demonstrating CIIS’ existing commitments and leadership in these areas, the Sustainability Project Manager’s work will enhance the value and appeal of a CIIS education while holding the university community accountable to its highest aspirations.
