Director of Academic Affairs, The Institute for Learning and Teaching

Fort Collins, Colorado
Mar 25, 2019
Institution Type
Four-Year Institution

The successful candidate will direct TILT’s Academic Affairs unit. This unit includes Learning Programs, which offers peer education programs; Academic Integrity, which promotes academic honesty in students’ work; and the Catalyst Learning Community, a non-residential sophomore-/junior-year learning community that supports all students, particularly those from historically under-represented groups. In overseeing Learning Programs, the Director supervises three full-time colleagues who are responsible for 100+ student staff. Together, Learning Programs colleagues administer TILT’s tutoring, study groups, learning assistant, and academic success programs. In overseeing Academic Integrity, the Director supervises one full-time colleague who reports 50% to TILT and 50% to the Student Resolution Center and provides education to promote initiatives, teaching approaches, and student habits that discourage academic dishonesty and encourage academic integrity.

The Director, in collaboration with TILT and CSU colleagues, works to support CSU’s nationally recognized Student Success Initiatives (SSI) by coordinating and aligning Academic Affairs activities with broader SSI efforts, including retention and academic programs, such as CSU’s U-Turn intervention. The Director will guide Learning Programs staff and the Academic Integrity Program Director in designing and implementing effective programs, in building partnerships in TILT and across campus, in aligning their programs optimally with CSU priorities and with each other, in regularly assessing their programs’ impact, in using assessment findings for program improvement, and in deepening the positive impact of their programs on CSU students, faculty, and others. Further, the Director will manage Learning Programs, serving as its Director, and provide guidance for all of TILT’s peer learning programs, which serve thousands of CSU students. Shifting institutional priorities require all Academic Affairs staff to collaborate more closely with TILT’s other three units, Instructional Design and Development, the Instructional Technology Team, and the Student Engagement Team. The Director will work with TILT leadership to develop and guide these collaborations. Must be legally authorized to work in the U.S. by proposed start date. TILT will not provide VISA sponsorship for this position. CSU is an EO/EA/AA employer and conducts background checks on all final candidates.
