Al-Quds Bard College
Call for Services – Guidance Counselor
 
Fall 2021 marking its thirteenth year of operation, Al-Quds Bard College for Arts and Sciences (AQB) is an innovative program introducing a liberal arts undergraduate education to the West Bank, with an enrollment of approximately 310 undergraduate and graduate students in 2020-2021. AQB’s undergraduate program, taught in English, is rigorous and culminates in a two-semester independent senior project, which, in many fields is a demanding research paper. The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program requires an equal amount of advanced study in the elected academic discipline (Mathematics, Biology, English, History, or Sciences) and in key education courses that challenge teachers to apply the results of research and pedagogical analysis to the actual work of teaching. Graduates of AQB receive two degrees: a BA or a MAT from Al-Quds University and a BA or MAT from Bard College (New York). 
 
Al-Quds Bard College is seeking candidates to serve as the Guidance Counselor to its community of undergraduate students. In this role, the Guidance Counselor will provide/participate in the following:
  • Serve as a first line resource for connecting students to crucial community services and professional support. The Guidance Counselor will not provide psychological or psychiatric services, rather, they will be tasked with listening to student concerns and referring them to the appropriate services.
  • Develop a vetted database of community resources and services for students in crisis, each with a contact person. The Guidance Counselor will be responsible for vetting community resources and services via calls and site visits, according to a vetting protocol that will be developed in conjunction with the Guidance Counselor's supervisor, the AQB Dean. 
  • The Guidance Counselor will coordinate 2-3 student group activities and one faculty workshop per semester. The Counselor will work with relevant staff at AQB and students to develop group activities that address the students’ needs. Likewise, the faculty workshop should also be developed in consultation with faculty and every effort made to offer workshops/activities that are informed by concrete assessment of AQB community needs.
  • The Guidance Counselor is expected to make every effort to get to know students and faculty. This can include visiting classrooms to introduce themselves and their role, attending student-organized events and activities, and generally working to gain student trust and understand the college culture.
The Guidance Counselor will work 8-10 hours a week, with hours split over two days and at times that students are most likely to be available. The Counselor’s hours will be a hybrid of virtual and in-person on campus at Al-Quds University, wherein times will be reserved for appointments and others for "drop in" periods. Students can confidentially sign up for appointments virtually, at which time they will also be able to fill out a short and low stakes intake form.
