As a member of the college community with responsibilities to enable the achievement of college-wide strategic objectives, the Director will demonstrate the three core and three leadership capabilities identified in the College’s Capability Framework:

Focus on Students and Their Success (Core)
We all have a role to play in promoting and supporting students – directly or indirectly – contributing to their success, education and transition as they build their path to the future.

Cultural Alignment (Core)
Inclusion and respect align with Camosun’s traditions of lifelong learning and positive, supportive experiences for all. We examine our individual and institutional cultures and, through indigenization, consider other ways of knowing (thinking), being (approaches), doing (acting), and relating.

Fostering and Nurturing Relationships (Core)
Fostering and nurturing relationships is at the core of everything we do. Successful workplace relationships take time to develop and include building trust, engagement and collaboration.

Address College Needs (Leadership)
In order to address college needs leaders recognize and respond to the complex, diverse and interdependent components. Leaders inspire others to work individually and collaboratively to achieve departmental/divisional, college and sectoral goals.

Enable Self & Others (Leadership)
To better serve students and the college to achieve success, leaders enable self and others to take responsibility and to participate in learning and development opportunities.

Create Time and Space (Leadership)
To be at our best and achieve organizational goals, we need both time and space. Time and space as a unitary concept promotes opportunities to listen, plan, think, create, innovate and develop relationships.
