The general duties of the Associate Dean include but are not limited to: enhancement of the numerous undergraduate degree programs offered by the College and design of new programs as needed; general supervision of the course content of individual courses and creation of new courses as appropriate in cooperation with faculty experts; collaboration with the Dean to implement academic programs and assessment measures; collaboration with the Dean and the other Associate Deans to hire teaching faculty; managing the teaching faculty and oversight of teaching in collaboration with the other Associate Deans; scheduling of the sections for all undergraduate and graduate CS and IS courses in collaboration with the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs; tracking and recording tenure/tenure-track faculty teaching loads and related non-instructional activity; implementing academic policies for undergraduate students and deciding when exceptions may be granted for appropriate reasons; assisting the academic advisors with student issues and registrar questions and occasionally doing direct student advising.
The Associate Dean also serves on several permanent University committees including the committee of all undergraduate associate deans and the committee that reviews undergraduate curriculum changes. The Associate Dean may also be asked to serve on ad hoc committees from time to time.
The position of Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs offers opportunities for professional growth and development, and for frequent interaction with a committed faculty and a supportive Dean. The Associate Dean is a member of the Dean’s senior leadership team and assists with strategic planning for the College. The Associate Dean may also be asked to undertake special projects as assigned by the Dean or as requested by the Office of the Provost or the Office of the President.

The successful candidate for Associate Dean will have well-developed interpersonal communication skills, written and oral. The position requires a doctoral degree in Computer Science and/or relevant field; an academic rank of Full Professor or Associate Professor; at least three years experience in upper level academic administration; and demonstrated proficiency in management.
