Clinical Professor of Urban Leadership

Claremont, Los Angeles County
Mar 07, 2014
The School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University (CGU) invites nominations and applications for a faculty position at the rank of clinical professor (untenured) in the subfield of Urban Leadership. The position will commence at the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year. The Urban Leadership program at CGU is small and distinctive and exists as part of the School of Educational Studies. Accordingly, we are seeking an experienced scholar-practitioner who can work at the intersection of leadership preparation, practice in the urban setting, policy and academic scholarship. This is a non-tenure graduate faculty position, which carries teaching, coordination, and service responsibilities in the School. This position will serve the PhD program in Urban Leadership – an innovative cohort program designed to meet the needs of urban K-14 educational leaders. Each cohort is a highly selective group of educators with a demonstrated potential for leadership in education or a related field. The graduates of the program are making a critical difference in leading traditional public, charter and parochial schools. The successful candidate will be expected to teach graduate students in our M.A. and Ph.D. programs, and supervise graduate student research. The successful candidate also will demonstrate experience and/or capacity for advising a diverse student body. Candidates must demonstrate deep practical experience in senior level educational leadership positions, a record of publications, and possess outstanding teaching, mentoring and outreach skills. Candidates should possess a deep understanding of the relationship between scholarship and practice. The struggle for social justice is not an abstraction here, but an integral part of the School of Educational Studies’ teaching and research. The School is committed to merging work for social justice with forthright accountability. Our graduates, and hence our faculty, are expected to be responsible education critics and architects.
