Dean of the School of Education

The University of Redlands—an independent liberal arts and sciences university with high quality professional programs—invites nominations and applications for the position of the Dean of the School of Education.

The Dean is the senior academic and administrative leader of the school, responsible for strategy, operations and financial management. Building upon a strong foundation and expanded community outreach, the dean leads the school in providing responsive and transformational programs of the highest quality. The position offers a comprehensive leadership portfolio that includes faculty development, staff oversight, curricular and pedagogical innovation, assessment, external relations, and enrollment management for the School of Education.

Graduate programs offered include credentials in teaching, school counseling and school administration; master’s degree programs in counseling, curriculum and instruction, educational administration, and higher education; and a doctorate (Ed.D.) in leadership for educational justice. Programs are delivered at the University of Redlands home campus and several regional sites in southern California. The school will begin offering a Master’s program (January 2020) at the new Redlands center in Marin County, California (San Francisco Bay Area).

The Dean of the School of Education will build on the momentum of the past several years, galvanizing change and valuing the historical and cultural strengths of both the School and the University. The Dean will be inspired by the diversity of engagement that the position brings with students, faculty, staff, donors, and regional external partners, all with the goal of the education of students. The dean will manage operations—not only as a series of transactions—but as a system to be understood conceptually as information, relationships and tasks that align transactions with a larger purpose. The Dean will expect and recognize faculty excellence in teaching and learning, fostering effective faculty development across the trajectory of individual careers.

The Dean reports directly to the Provost and Chief Academic Officer and is a member of the President’s Cabinet and Provost’s Council.
