The Position
Reporting to the Associate Dean, the Academic Director is responsible for the hiring, oversight, and on-going communication with faculty and staff, management of academic curriculum and policies, management of student services and concerns, and collaboration with many other SPS and NYU offices. Faculty appointments are for nine months, and are renewable annually based on performance. The Academic Director will teach two classes per year.

The Division seeks candidates who show evidence of the ability to perform the primary duties of the Academic Director, which include, but are not limited to:

•    In consultation with faculty, create all course schedules, assign faculty, and submit paperwork through appropriate administrative systems
•    Manage disputes between students and faculty/staff, issues related to academic integrity, grade appeals, and the student probation and dismissal process in collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs
•    Collaborate with SPS and NYU academic departments on interdisciplinary programs or other projects that enhance student learning

Candidates should demonstrate an interest in post-traditional undergraduate education and a sense of urgency about the role of higher education in helping to ensure that graduates have the knowledge, skills and mindsets to be successful in their future endeavors, including employment.

The successful candidate will have earned a doctorate (or terminal degree in their field) and be qualified to teach in one of McGhee’s degree programs. Candidates must have a minimum of three years of teaching experience at the college level, and a record of teaching effectiveness, student advising, research, and professional service that meets the expectations of the faculty rank of Clinical Assistant or Associate Professor.
