The Chicago Theological Seminary (CTS) is one of seven seminaries affiliated with the United Church of Christ (UCC).

Reporting to the Executive Director of Enrollment Management, the Assistant Director contributes to the overall recruitment goals of the seminary. General assistance involves working with the Office of Admissions to promote the institution with respect to its alumni, communities of faith, professional alliances, and prospective students. Specific assistance includes: managing the recruitment initiatives, communicating with prospective students and leading them through the admissions process. The Assistant Director will also coordinate individual and group visits; manage and respond to inquiries and applicants using the data management system (EMPOWER); communicate regularly with prospects and applicants via phone calls and email. The Assistant Director will help CTS live out its commitments by increasing outreach to minority applicants and establishing relationships with Historic Black Colleges and Universities.
