Program Structure

This page is for AUC offices wishing to apply to host a presidential associate. 

A total of 16 presidential associate placements’ will be available by the beginning of FY21. Of these 16 placements, seven are fixed and continuous associate positions for each member of the university senior leadership (see table below), while the remaining nine positions rotate among interested offices/departments on campus every two years. 


VP for Student Life

VP for Marketing Communication and Public Affairs

VP for Advancement and Americas

University Counselor

General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer

VP for University Affairs and Chief of Staff

AVP for Finance and CFO

Senior VP for Administration, Planning and Transformation

VP for Management and Operations    

In the event that one of the members of the university senior leadership is unable or unavailable to host an associate, they will notify the Coordinator, thereby rendering their fixed placement headcount open to others as an additional rotating placement. The member of the university senior leadership may not “offer” their placement headcount to another office/department of choice, nor will they be entitled to reclaim the headcount before two years. 

If a member of the university senior leadership is interested in hosting more than one associate, they will need to apply for one of the rotating placement headcounts as per the procedure outlined in the New Hosting Offices section.

Offices/departments interested in hosting an associate will get the opportunity to apply for an associate at the commencement of the recruitment cycle. A rotating placement headcount can be retained for a minimum of one year and a maximum of two consecutive years before it is released for rotation again.  

The Program duration is 12 months, from September 1 to August 31 of the following year.

The application to host an associate for the upcoming year is not yet available. Check back here in February/March 2021 for updates regarding the application.

The application form must have the approval of the relevant area head and must have a comprehensive job description attached to it in order to be considered.

Send all completed applications and corresponding job descriptions to Yasmeen Moataz, program coordinator, Office of Human Resources at or call at +2.2.615.2456.
