Private four-year Liberal Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles

Reporting to the Sr. Associate Dean of Admission, the admission counselor will be an integral member of the team of admission officers who visit high schools, community colleges, and community-based organizations around the country for information sessions, college fairs, workshops, and other programming. The admission counselor will also assist with virtual programming, on-campus programs, and prospective student interviews. In addition to general admission officer duties, the admission counselor will also read and evaluate applications and actively participate in the committee process to select candidates. Other duties will be assigned based on the needs of the office and the skills of the individual.

Occidental maintains a longstanding commitment to access and equity and as a result our current student body is 46% domestic students of color and 16% first-generation college students. Our financial aid policies meet 100% of the demonstrated need of our students. The Office of Admission seeks a colleague who will identify innovative ways to help us build upon this strong foundation and work towards building a more anti-racist admission process for our prospective students. Our expectation is that the successful candidate will excel at working in a community that is broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.
