The Oregon Humanities team is a small group of idealistic, collaborative, creative people who are committed to bringing Oregonians together across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds. Each year, we offer hundreds of public conversations and programs across the state and tens of thousands of dollars in grants to organizations that, like us, believe in the power of people in rooms listening, learning, and struggling together. In our magazine and on our website, we publish essays, photographs, films, and audio recordings that explore the thoughts, perspectives, and experiences of Oregonians, especially those who have been ignored, generalized, or oppressed.


We are looking for a part-time office administrator to support the work of Oregon Humanities staff and board. The person in this position is responsible for general office duties, in addition to financial, personnel, and technical support. As needed, the office administrator supports staff requests for general assistance. This position requires a broad-based and thorough understanding of the activities, vision, and work of Oregon Humanities.


Oregon Humanities values equity, justice, empathy, and respect as key attributes of vital, flourishing communities. We encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds, particularly those from historically underrepresented groups, whose professional and personal experiences will help us work toward our vision of an Oregon that invites diverse perspectives, explores challenging questions, and strives for just communities.



Oregon Humanities offers paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; health and dental insurance; 403(b) retirement plan; and long-term disability and life-insurance plan.
