Detailed Job Description

The Center for Constitutional Studies at Utah Valley University is a nonpartisan academic institute that promotes the study of constitutionalism. In particular, it examines important constitutional issues found at the intersections of political thought, public policy, religion, law, history, and economics. It employs a multidisciplinary approach to effectively equip a new generation of citizens and leaders with a broad understanding of political thought and economic and political practices critical to the perpetuation of constitutional government, ordered liberty, and the rule of law.

Under the general supervision of the Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs, the Director is responsible for the operational, fundraising, financial, programmatic and personnel activities of the Center for Constitutional Studies.
