      Pratt Institute seeks a visionary individual to serve as the Director
      of the Pratt Center for Community and Development.

      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

      A detailed organization and position description is attached for your

      Applicants are encouraged to review both Pratt Center's and Pratt
      Institute's websites www.prattcenter.net, www.pratt.edu respectively.

      Salary commensurate with experience. To apply, please submit resume
      and cover letter outlining your philosophy and how your background
      and experience will complement the Center's need for leadership and
      innovation. Also include the names and contact numbers of three
      business references and your salary history.

      No applications will be accepted after February 13, 2009.
