Clemson University College of Education Associate Dean and Department Chair Opportunities

The Clemson University College of Education seeks dedicated academic leaders for two dynamic opportunities. The positions include Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (ADAA) and Department Chair of Educational and Organizational Leadership Development (EOLD).

The Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (ADAA) reports directly to the Dean and provides creative administrative leadership that promotes growth and innovation in graduate and undergraduate education. Clemson University’s College of Education embraces the university’s land-grant mission to better the lives of South Carolina’s citizens in the contexts of race, rurality, and poverty. The ADAA participates in policy development and implementation and is a key member of the College’s leadership team working with the Dean, Associate Dean for Research (ADR), department chairs, directors, students, faculty, staff, the University administration, and the College’s regional, state, and local constituencies. The expected start date is during the summer of 2018.  Review of applications begins the 26th of January and continues until the position is filled.

The Department Chair position would merit tenure at the level of Full Professor in the Department of Educational and Organizational Leadership Development (EOLD). This position is primarily responsible for providing leadership and support to ensure the quality of the department’s teaching, scholarship, public service, and graduate programs. The nine-month appointment is for a 3-year term eligible for renewal and will begin July 1, 2018. The candidate for this position is expected to fill a critical need for a highly collaborative colleague, systemic thinker, and leader, who desires to work within the southern contexts of poverty, race, rural, and urban environments. Clemson’s educational graduate programs are committed to an ongoing process of curricular and program improvement and to building external partnerships to prepare diverse cohorts of educational leaders, who are representative of the diverse student populations in the region.
