Job Description:

ADJUNCT FACULTY

ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND CHANGE

SAN JOSE CAMPUS

If you value Respect, Diversity, Social Justice, and Inclusion, we’d like to hear from you!

Pacific Oaks' online M.A. in Organizational Leadership and Management (OLM) program is based upon the theory that leadership requires knowledge, skill, and deep self-knowledge to be authentic, and that authentic leadership is essential to creating organizations with sustainable value. Graduates from our Organizational Leadership and Change program will understand that establishing responsible and ethical relationships, valuing and respecting each individual, and leading with passion and purpose are all necessary to insure that organizations achieve goals that are aligned with the public good.

Through the development of management and leadership competencies grounded upon respect for human capacity, graduates will be prepared to become leaders of change, able to navigate the complexity and unpredictability of various organizations and to transcend cultural, political, and national barriers. Unlike a more traditional MBA, societal considerations are not relegated to theory, but integrated with the development of each competency, providing for a more dynamic understanding of how these considerations directly affect organizational needs.

A primary learning outcome of the Organizational Leadership and Change program, capacity for critical self-reflection and moral comprehension, helps guide leaders to bring social justice, advocacy, and respect for diversity and individualism into organizations and the world.

This culture-centered education emphasizes relevancy and strategy to managing a diverse workforce.

Pacific Oaks College is a nonprofit, accredited higher education institution offering bachelor’s completion, master’s, and certificate programs in human development, counseling, education, early childhood education, and teacher credentialing. The school offers classes at its main campus in Pasadena and at a number of convenient instructional sites throughout California, as well as online.

Founded more than 60 years ago by a small group of Quaker families, Pacific Oaks College has remained dedicated to the fundamental Quaker principles of inclusion, social justice, and the valuing of every human being. Three basic concepts underlie the educational philosophy at Pacific Oaks:

  • that every individual has a fundamental worth;
  • that growth is a dynamic and life-long process;
  • and that every individual has a unique identity and human potential.

Pacific Oaks has a long history of serving non-traditional and adult students and has become known and recognized for its progressive approach to teaching and learning—valuing real-world experiences in addition to academic achievements. This philosophy is embodied in the school’s Experiential Learning, approach, and opportunities such as the Credit for Life Experience option which allows students to gain academic credit for real-world experiences.

Pacific Oaks is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and has been since 1959.
