Administration

President, St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf

We are looking for a strategic leader to bring a fresh perspective and business planning skills to align our teams and take our organization to the next level. The President does not need to be Catholic but must embrace the mission and uphold the Catholic identity of the organization. This is an outward-facing role to lead all aspects of SJID, in collaboration with our educational leaders. In 1837, the Sisters of St. Joseph opened the first school for the deaf west of the Mississippi in Carondelet, MO, and devotedly served 4 children with hearing loss. Today, St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf has a $3.5 mil budget with over 40 staff, including Executive Directors that lead each school, skilled LSLS certified therapists, licensed audiologists, school locations in St Louis and Indianapolis, and provides iHear tele-therapy worldwide. SJID is committed to listening and spoken language education, spiritual and emotional growth, and personal development of children who are deaf or hard of hearing, without discrimination, reflective of the values and early traditions of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Please respond by May 25, 2021.
