Director of Major Gifts

Antioch College was founded as a new kind of American college, a place where students seek to “win victories for humanity” and engage in real-world problem solving in the classroom, campus and community, and through our renowned cooperative education program. Through participatory learning and work-based education, students develop and put their ideas into practice. Guided by talented teachers and mentors, students own their education through a robust Self-Designed Major program that encourages students to explore the transdisciplinary spaces within and between the humanities, sciences, arts, and social sciences.
Antioch College embraces diversity as a core value, and considers it fundamental to excellence in education. We are an educational community dedicated to the pursuit of social justice that intentionally and consistently supports diverse and inclusive practices. We seek candidates who can contribute to Antioch’s mission through curricular development and innovation that fosters social justice, cultural competencies and understanding of diversity.
Antioch College is located in the village of Yellow Springs, Ohio – a vibrant progressive community nestled between two nature preserves. Yellow Springs is located 55 miles from the fast-growing city of Columbus, Ohio, and 30 miles from the Dayton metro area.
