Loyola University Chicago: Dean, School of Education
Loyola University Chicago seeks a dean to lead its thriving School of Education to even greater levels of distinction in teaching, scholarship, and service. Dedicated to social justice and to its urban environment, the School of Education embodies and delivers on Loyola’s Catholic, Jesuit mission.
Loyola’s dean will be a scholar and teacher of national reputation who is experienced with and committed to both undergraduate and graduate education. He or she will embrace Loyola’s mission and values and will make those values manifest by engaging with strategic partners across and beyond Chicago. Perhaps no aspect of the new dean’s talents and experience will be as important as a commitment to innovation and creativity within and beyond the academic program. Loyola, for example, is reinventing teacher preparation in a new approach that it hopes will become a national model. The dean will see that innovative program through to realize its full potential and will similarly promote and reward innovation across the School’s teaching and research agendae.
Accomplishing these tasks and helping the School to realize its full potential requires an academic leader with the credentials and the personality to support a national reputation in the field. The dean will be an effective and enthusiastic advocate for the School and the University to diverse audiences both external and internal. Because the School of Education faculty includes a high percentage of younger, up-and-coming scholars, the dean will particularly enjoy the opportunity to mentor the teachers and thought leaders of tomorrow. Superior communications and relationship-building skills are required as are an earned terminal degree and a record of scholarship and teaching commensurate with an appointment to the Loyola faculty with tenure. Previous, successful experience in both grantsmanship and private, philanthropic fund raising are highly preferred.
The Loyola University School of Education teaches the teachers of tomorrow in new and innovative ways; it serves its community with new ideas and approaches; and it anticipates the needs of the future with ground-breaking scholarship. Its dean will build upon a history of innovation and will, as a result, have the opportunity to play a leadership role in this critically important and fast-evolving field locally, regionally, and nationally.
