CUNY Academic Program Manager (Associate Director of Quantitative Student Support) in New York, New York

Job Title: Academic Program Manager (Associate Director of Quantitative Student Support)

Job ID: 21349

Location: Baruch College

Full/Part Time: Full-Time

Regular/Temporary: Regular

POSITION DETAILS

Baruch College of the City University of New York is a catalyst for the social, cultural, and financial mobility of a diverse student body. It is ranked among the region's and nation's top colleges by U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and Princeton Review.

This mission of the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs is to empower the next generation of public and nonprofit leaders, advance knowledge about public life and policy, and engage communities across the city, nation, and world to foster effective, inclusive institutions and societies.

Reporting to the Associate Dean, the Associate Director of Quantitative Student Support (Academic Program Manager) will develop curriculum , manage and implement a variety of workshops, tutoring programs and other interventions to improve professional master’s students’ quantitative and analytical skills. Quantitative skills are those needed for applied statistics, research and analysis, economics and budgeting courses, as well as to ensure students are quantitatively literate in an era of growing data importance. Some students have had lifelong problems with math and quantitative skills. Other students succeeded in their courses but do not have the deep level of comfort needed to reach the next stage. Yet other students have stale skills and even those with the strongest skills need to sharpen them to improve their data analysis. An important goal is to support students so that they can understand analysis, enough to critically assess and make effective use of it, rather than an ability to accomplish tasks by rote.

In addition to the CUNY Title Overview, duties include but are not limited to:

  • Collaborate with faculty, administrators, and staff to determine how best to meet students’ quantitative needs

  • Lead effort, in collaboration with Marxe School faculty and administrators, to assess and document quantitative analysis needs, inventory curricula, and serve as an institutional specialist for quantitative student support across the School’s graduate programs

  • Develop and refine curriculum and materials

  • Develop and teach a semester-long workshop for students whose previous records show them to need extensive work in basic quantitative areas.

  • Conduct formative evaluation of and refine this workshop accordingly

  • Consult with faculty who would like to improve their pedagogical and psycho-social approaches to teaching students quantitative skills.

  • Provide summer and winter pre-semester workshops for students identified by the admissions committee as needing refreshers to begin their program.

  • Develop and provide other workshops and sessions available to all Marxe graduate students throughout the academic year

  • Oversee peer tutoring

QUALIFICATIONS

Bachelor's Degree.

  • Minimum of six years of combined work and/or academic experience in quantitative, mathematics or related education

  • Demonstrated experience of effective teaching for adult or near-adult students whose previous records show them to be under prepared for quantitative reasoning, mathematics or related courses, especially students who have had a history of difficulty and/or fear with this content

  • Demonstrated experience writing curricula for use with students whose previous records show them to be under prepared for college quantitative reasoning, mathematics, or related courses

  • Demonstrated experience writing teaching plans and materials, especially active learning materials, that guide students to develop deep (not rote) understanding, and a student-centered pedagogy

  • Demonstrated experience collaborating with faculty, tutors, administrators, and staff to assist students whose previous records show them to be under prepared in quantitative reasoning, mathematics or related courses

  • Knowledge of, or ability to learn, content in public policy, public management, international affairs, higher education administration and other fields in order to fill the curriculum, workshops, courses, and tutoring with examples, activities and tasks that are relevant to students’ experience, interests, and goals

  • Knowledge of, or ability to learn, basic microeconomics and other academic content as needed.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • At least eight years or more of experience and successful record devising new programs and/or supports for students whose previous records show them to be underprepared for quantitative reasoning, mathematics or related
