UMBC seeking new Director of Communications #job

I'm helping my client UMBC to spread the word about a great new opening for a Director of Communications.

UMBC is located in Baltimore County, Md., south of Baltimore and an easy, low-traffic half-hour drive from Washington, DC, with access to commuter trains from Washington and points north. It's an "up-and-coming" university in U.S. News and World Report's rankings and its president, Freeman Hrabowski, was named one of TIME's 10 best college presidents in 2009. (This position works directly with the President, among other duties.)

I've worked with UMBC on expanding its use of social media to engage key audiences, and it now has a robust series of projects in that area. I've blogged a bit about those efforts here, and current efforts go well beyond what's in that post.
To apply, please do not send your materials to me. Follow the directions in the attached posting to direct your materials to the search committee. Resumes will be accepted until the position is filled, but for best consideration, applicants should submit a cover letter, resume and contact information for three professional references  by April 18, 2011.

Here are some links to give you a sense of the campus, its accolades and its current communications efforts. It's a wonderful, innovative team of people, and I hope you'll explore this great opportunity.
