Dean of the School of Education
Campbell University seeks a strategic, forward-looking leader to serve as its next Dean of the School of Education. The Dean will find that the School of Education encompasses a diverse set of programs and is poised for a new era of growth and development. Today’s Campbell University began as a primary school in 1887 and has since evolved into a robust university that prepares professionals in a wide range of fields to serve North Carolina, the region, and the larger world in keeping with its Christian mission. Campbell’s School of Education educates one-third of the teachers in Harnett County, NC and, similar to Campbell’s other schools, plays a pivotal role in supplying needed professionals to the state of North Carolina as a whole, and its rural communities in particular.
Campbell’s School of Education currently offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees in person and online in the fields of education, social work, psychology, and counseling. The new Dean might hail from any of the related disciplines, but will be expected to prioritize the overall health of the School and the continued development of the talented faculty and students in all of its programs. The Dean will have the opportunity to consider areas of potential programmatic growth or reorganization for the School and in particular, will be encouraged to collaborate closely with Campbell’s faculty and administrators in the Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine, the Catherine W. Wood School of Nursing, the College of Arts & Sciences, the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law, the Division of Adult and Online Education, and others. While the Dean must maintain the School’s current strong and healthy connections with state school officials and policy makers, s/he will also be encouraged to think boldly and creatively, in collaboration with colleagues, about the School’s exciting potential for the future.
The Dean will hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field (e.g., education, social work, psychology, or counseling among others) and have a record of academic and administrative accomplishments sufficient to be appointable as a full professor at Campbell.
