The Education Department at La Salle University seeks qualified candidates to join a dynamic group of teacher educators for the position of Department Chair. Housed in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, the department is comprised of graduate and undergraduate programs that prepare teachers for initial certification and advanced study.

As the primary representative of the education programs the Chair will develop strong collaborative relationships to advance the goals of the department.
