Pratt Center for Community Development, an Equal Opportunity
Employer, works for a more just, equitable and sustainable city for
all New Yorkers, by empowering low- and moderate-income communities
to plan for and realize their futures. As part of Pratt Institute, we
leverage professional skills -- especially in city planning,
architecture, real estate and public policy -- to support community-
based organizations in their efforts to improve quality of life,
create economic opportunity and advance sustainable development.
The Director will be responsible for supervising all aspects of the
Center's programs and will have primary responsibility for program
development and for fundraising to support and grow the agency's $2.5
million budget. The Director will report to the Provost of Pratt
Institute, and to Pratt Center's Advisory Board, a diverse and
dynamic group of community development practitioners, academics,
professionals, and members of the philanthropic community.
The ideal candidate will have the ability to engage and work directly
with a diverse professional staff, community-based not-for-profit
organizations, with academics at Pratt Institute, and with
stakeholders in policy, planning, and philanthropy who are engaged in
community development. Pratt Center's work is primarily based in New
York City, but relates to work regionally, nationally, and
internationally. While not mandatory, there will be teaching
opportunities within the School of Architecture at Pratt Institute.
Therefore, the ideal candidate will possess a desire and affinity for
both traditional and non-traditional education and training
