About Zaytuna College
Zaytuna College is America's first accredited Muslim liberal arts college that offers a bachelor of arts degree in Islamic law and theology and a master’s degree in Islamic texts. The College aims to help restore the centrality of pursuing knowledge among Muslims, which has always been the hallmark of Islamic tradition. The primary mission of the College is “to educate and prepare morally committed professionals, intellectuals, and spiritual leaders, who are grounded in the Islamic scholarly tradition and conversant with the cultural currents and critical ideas shaping modern society.” A central goal of the College is to reintegrate the once vital and influential voice of Muslim thought and erudition back into the ongoing Western conversation of great ideas within the context of our new globalized society informed largely by shifting values.
Charged with dramatically increasing both the quality and size of the Zaytuna College prospect pool, the Office of Development plays a key role in the overall growth of private philanthropy for this unique institution.

The associate regional director needs to work cooperatively with colleagues across the College. This position carries a portfolio of approximately 150 qualified prospects and makes a minimum of 100 face-to-face visits per year.
