    Grants and Contracts Administrator

    Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) School of Education is seeking a detail-oriented, project-management-minded individual to serve as the Grants and Contracts Administrator for the newly established Office of Education Solutions (OES). Because the Office of Education Solutions is new, this is currently a temporary position. The position will be renewed annually, dependent on continued funding. The OES is an innovative hub of publicly and privately-funded initiatives aimed at addressing urban and rural PreK-12 settings in Colorado and beyond. The Grants and Contracts Administrator will serve as the central, internal point of contact for all externally funded projects, working closely with the OES Director and other OES staff; School of Education (SOE) leadership and staff; Principal Investigators and leads; the Office of Sponsored Research and Projects; Sponsored Projects Accounting and Compliance; the MSU Denver Foundation; faculty; and others to optimize and maintain the infrastructure needed to achieve key objectives supported by external funding.  Reporting to the OES Director, the Grants and Contracts Administrator will be a self-starter who is able to work remotely and on campus, and communicate effectively with faculty and staff across the university.   

    MSU Denver is a unique, access-oriented campus community that values diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are a designated Hispanic Serving Institution located in downtown Denver. Our student population consists of nearly 50% first generation students and over 45% students of ethnic/racial minority backgrounds. 

    We create an equitable learning and working environment with individuals who consistently demonstrate commitment to equity and inclusion. We value the diverse identities and perspectives of our students, faculty, and staff and recognize that in order to achieve a just and equitable society, diversity must go beyond simple representation. It requires critical inquiry and dialogue and a commitment to action. We strive to provide a culture of belonging where all community members feel valued to achieve personal and professional success.
