Department: Special Education, Rehabilitation and Counseling
Appointment: Open Rank, Tenure-Track
Effective: August 2023
Area of Specialization: Counseling
The Department of Special Education, Rehabilitation and Counseling at California State University, San Bernardino invites applications for two tenure-track, open rank professor positions in Counseling beginning August 2023. The Counseling program is a master's degree program that houses two distinct concentrations: professional counseling and school counseling. The professional counseling concentration prepares students to become Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC), as regulated by The California Board of Behavioral Sciences, while the school counseling concentration prepares students for a California Pupil Personnel Services Credential (PPS), as granted by the California Teaching Commission. We also offer a minor in Counseling and Social Change, as this minor intends to offer an interdisciplinary approach that invites students to explore the ways social and political contexts shape people’s experiences, relationships, and the stories that shape us. We are seeking energetic and innovative candidates who have a background in counseling and/or school counseling with particular interest and practice in postmodern counseling with emphasis on equity, social justice, restorative justice, and culturally sustaining approaches. Bilingual applicants and those with multicultural experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
