Job Type




Interfaith America is a national nonprofit organization based in Chicago. We believe that religious diversity is a foundational American strength, and we are building a nation that achieves that promise for the common good. Our mission is to inspire, equip, and connect organizations and leaders to unlock the potential of America’s religious diversity. We leverage our expertise in interfaith leadership in different sectors and spaces in American life, such as higher education, health, public policy, racial equity, corporations/business, tech – giving leaders and institutions the tools and resources they need to positively engage religious diversity for the common good.   

At Interfaith America, we are ever adapting and changing. We look for people who set audacious goals and love that one workday may not be like the next. We have a strong commitment to pluralism and building bridges across deep differences. Our programs help people build skills to bridge deep ideological divides. Our work is about staying in relationship with one another and contributing to the common good even when we might disagree on fundamental things. We seek to attract and retain a team of staff comprised of a wide variety of views and backgrounds we need to achieve our vision, especially people from communities historically underrepresented in interfaith work.



Interfaith America has worked with American colleges and universities for over a decade. We are committed to providing high quality programming that suffuses and sustains higher education’s commitment to engaging religious diversity and advances a culture of pluralism more broadly on campuses.? The Program Manager (Campus Partnerships) is an essential part of the Campus Partnerships team within IA’s Higher Education sector. While all IA program managers engage religious and worldview diversity with a variety of constituents, this position involves a particular focus on projects involving university presidents, chancellors, and senior administrators.

  • Cultivate relationships with civic partners (e.g. peers at non-profits), academic associations, and campus constituents 
  • Represent Interfaith America through presentations and attendance at conferences, on campus visits, and at IA events  

Required Qualifications:

Preferred Qualifications (not required):

  • Experience in in-person and online training, facilitation, consulting, education, assessment and/or related skill sets   
  • Experience with networking and building relationships or coalitions

Location: This position will work 2-3 days per week from our Chicago Loop office and 2-3 days per week from home 

Travel: Approximately 20–25% of work time will be traveling to colleges/universities, and conferences across the country (average throughout year; may be more during peak academic and conference seasons); can expect to work occasional nights and weekends
