Job Title: Interim Associate Dean of the School of Education
Job ID: 22376
Location: Queens College
Queens College, of the City University of New York, invites nominations and expressions of interest for the position of Interim Associate Dean of the School of Education. This is a great position for someone interested in exploring higher education administration. The School of Education is home to many premier programs and scholars, and produces more education graduates who become principals, teachers, and counselors for New York City's public schools than any other college in the metropolitan area. The Interim Associate Dean will have the unique and exciting opportunity to shape the School's future.
The Queens College School of Education is made up of three academic departments: The Departments of Educational and Community Programs, Elementary and Early Childhood Education, and Secondary Education and Youth Services. With a full-time faculty of 67, the School of Education offers programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and last year, served over 3000 undergraduate and graduate students across the three departments. We offer accredited programs in teacher education as well as school psychology, counselor education, mental health counseling, and educational leadership.
Queens College prepares its education professionals to implement culturally responsive practices within diverse urban educational settings. Faculty across the School's numerous and diverse education and community programs are united in their shared commitment to our Core Values to prepare teachers and educational professionals who:
Build inclusive communities that nurture and challenge all learners (Equity);
Demonstrate professionalism, scholarship, self-efficacy, and the use of evidence- based and reflective practice (Excellence); and
Value diversity, democracy, and social justice (Ethics).
Building on academically rigorous content knowledge obtained through a solid liberal arts and sciences education, our programs expose candidates to strong social and philosophical foundations, culturally responsive and culturally sustaining practices, and scaffolded field and clinical experiences in urban public education and community-based settings.
The Associate Dean reports directly to the Dean of the School of Education. The responsibilities of the position include:
Facilitate, review and guide curriculum design, revision and approval throughout all phases of the curriculum development process and ensure that the curriculum, including field and clinical experiences, represents diversity of both ideas and peoples and situates equity as endemic to school success.
Help create a model of curricular equity that values human diversity in all forms and treats diversity not as an idea to be studied but as a value to be lived.
Facilitate and encourage the expansion of online curriculum as well as online student services, such as advisement.
Develop and implement initiative(s) to support recruitment for under enrolled programs, particularly of BIPOC students through a marketing and media campaign.
Assist the Dean and Chairs in achieving goals aligned with the College's Strategic Plan.
Act as the School of Education point of contact for the New York State Education Department regarding program registration, requirements, discontinuance, and other programmatic issues.
Assist the faculty in dealing with student e-permits, grade appeal requests, grievances, standards of conduct, ADA issues, diversity issues, and other student concerns and/or complaints.
Assist chairs in facilitating admissions, enrollment, and facilities management procedures in the School of Education.
Assume the role of dean in the dean's absence.
Carry out other tasks and responsibilities as requested by the dean.
This position is in CUNY's Executive Compensation Plan. All executive positions require a minimum of a Bachelor's degree and eight years' related experience.
The successful candidate will be a faculty member or higher education administrator with at least three years of experience in teacher education and who is interested in exploring an administrative title. The interim role is renewable for up to two years until a permanent position as Associate Dean is acquired.
The successful candidate will have a strong interest in curriculum work and a desire to facilitate conversations with faculty around diversity, equity and social justice. The candidate should possess strong organizational and technological skills, work well with faculty, students and staff to promote a collaborative and welcoming climate, and have some experience with NYSED guidelines for curriculum development. There is an opportunity for the right candidate to carve out areas of personal and professional interest in addition to the duties and responsibilities named above. While teaching and research are not part of the responsibilities, either might be built into the description during this 'interim' period. This is a full-time, 12-month position with flex/remote possibilities.
