  • The Department is primarily seeking an individual who can contribute immediately to our well-respected global doctoral programs in Educational Leadership (both Ed.D. and Ph.D.) which enroll students that work across the P-20 continuum. The Department also offers school leadership programs in principal and superintendent, as well as a new bachelor’s in Leadership for Community Education and Human Learning. Contributions to these programs would be valued as well.
  • We seek an individual who can teach foundational and advanced courses in leadership theories, practices, and applications.
