The Conway School is a small, independent graduate school of planning and design with an emphasis on sustainability, located in a hundred-year-old brick former coach house/horse barn in Northampton in western Massachusetts. Conway students graduate with a Master of Science in Ecological Design. Each year, a maximum of eighteen students learn by working on real projects for real communities, side-by-side with a dedicated interdisciplinary faculty and support staff. The school is run using a collaborative decision-making process that all employees design and participate in. We are a mix of part-time and full-time employees, many of whom have both teaching and administrative responsibilities.
Conway is looking for people who share the school’s mission—to explore, develop, practice, and teach design of the land that is ecologically and socially sustainable—and its commitment to justice, equity, whole-systems thinking, and collaboration. If you care deeply about climate change, social-environmental justice, sustainable agriculture, and community quality of life, and want a workplace that is built on collegiality and mutual respect, please consider applying to work at the Conway School.
The Conway School has an immediate opening for a Development Manager.
