National Wraparound Initiative Project Manager

Hiring Company: Portland State University
Location: Portland, Oregon

Job Description

Brief Description of PSU/School/Dept 
The Regional Research Institute for Human Services (RRI) was established in 1972 by the Graduate School of Social Work at Portland State University. Since then the RRI has received awards in excess of $31 million in grants and contracts. The RRI has undertaken more than one hundred projects, several of them national in scope, in such fields as youth services, aging services, family and child welfare, child care, employment, criminal justice, substance abuse, welfare reform, rehabilitation, child and adult mental health, and self-help and support groups.

The aim of the Institute is to improve human services through applied social research. As a society, we are reappraising the nature and extent of human responsibility, be it public or private, corporate or community, family or personal. This sense of responsibility for the help, care, and protection we provide one another, for the hazards to well-being we try to prevent, and for the risks we are willing to share, has led the RRI to search for realistic, low-cost, yet broad-reaching ways that society can strengthen individual, family, and community capabilities. The aim of the RRI has been pursued by studying policies, program management, and practice decisions; by assessing problems and service needs; by understanding human behavior and social conditions; by designing better ways to evaluate programs and analyze information; by demonstrating program innovations; and by creating mechanisms for consumers of services and their families to become involved in planning and evaluating services.

The RRI takes active responsibility for dissemination of findings, testing their application in the world of policy and practice, and developing new approaches to service delivery. A by-product of the research program is the contribution the RRI makes to University instruction through curriculum development, research-based courses, employment of students and supervision of doctoral and master's research, and by facilitating the research of faculty. The RRI has a well-developed computer network with facilities to download agency data tapes and conduct data analyses. Through grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements, the RRI offers research services and technical assistance to agencies and corporations in areas that include needs assessment, program evaluation, research design, surveys and statistical analysis.

Position Summary 
This position is responsible for oversight and coordination of research, evaluation, development and technical assistance activities within the National Wraparound Initiative (NWI). The person in this position will also manage relationships with NWI members, and oversee the NWI's work in areas such as gathering and synthesizing member input and feedback, and developing and implementing mechanisms for communicating with members and other stakeholders. The person in this position will also be able to use his or her own knowledge about/experience with wraparound practice and implementation to enrich the NWI's work in areas such as developing quality assurance tools and other assessments, and creating resources that support high quality practice.
