Assistant Provost for Leadership and Head of the Department of Leadership Studies

Job Responsiblities:

The Citadel seeks a faculty member in Leadership Studies to serve as Department Head for our recently established Department of Leadership Studies.  This individual will also serve in a 12-month appointment as an Assistant Provost for Leadership and be a visible leader in the integration of the college’s innovative leadership requirements.  The Department of Leadership Studies and the college’s academic leadership programs report to the Provost and Dean of the College.

The Citadel is committed to a values-based education and has adopted the overarching articulation of these as Honor, Duty, and Respect.  The leadership program integrates these values across a four-year leadership development model for all undergraduate students and requires leadership as a component for all of our graduate programs.  The quality enhancement plan associated with our SACS accreditation is in year four of a focus on ethics and moral courage.

The new Assistant Provost for Leadership and Head of the Department of Leadership Studies will be responsible for the graduate leadership programs, undergraduate leadership curriculum, undergraduate leadership minor, and faculty development and assessment of learning outcomes in leadership.  All faculty in the department are jointly appointed, and as chair of the department, the college seeks a candidate who has a strong history of working effectively with faculty. 

The Department of Leadership Studies offers a master’s degree in leadership (M.S.) as well as two graduate certificates in leadership (leadership and military leadership). All of the graduate programs are interdisciplinary in nature and include courses from business, education, political science, and psychology. The undergraduate minor in leadership is also interdisciplinary and includes courses from a wide variety of academic disciplines.

Additionally, the Assistant Provost will provide strategic oversight of college-wide academic leadership requirements and programs.  Working closely with the Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics, the Assistant Provost will lead a newly established Leadership Scholars admissions-based program. This high-impact program requires all students selected to enroll in the leadership minor and has touch-points each semester in leadership development. The Assistant Provost represents the college across communities as a compelling and engaged active voice for principled leadership.

Minimum Qualifications:

Must have a terminal degree in leadership or a related field.  In addition, the candidate must present a record of teaching and scholarly activity to qualify for tenure upon appointment at the rank of associate or full professor in the Department of Leadership Studies at The Citadel.  Finally, the successful candidate must have demonstrated academic administrative responsibilities in an educational setting.

Review of applications will begin on June 19.
