Queens College of the City University of New York invites nominations and expressions of interest for the position of Associate Dean for Curriculum and Assessment in the School of Education. The School of Education is home to many premier programs and scholars, and produces more education graduates who become principals, teachers, and counselors for New York City’s public schools than any other college in the metropolitan area. With a commitment to urban education and issues of social justice and equity, the School of Education aims to provide a progressive education to prepare the next generation of educators and leaders. Building on academically rigorous content knowledge obtained through a solid liberal arts and sciences education, our programs expose candidates to strong social and anti-racist educational foundations, culturally responsive and culturally sustaining practices, and scaffolded field and clinical experiences in urban public education and community-based settings.

Faculty across the School’s numerous and diverse education and community programs are united in their shared commitment to our Core Values to prepare teachers and educational professionals who:

· Build inclusive communities that nurture and challenge all learners (Equity);

· Demonstrate professionalism, scholarship, self-efficacy, and the use of evidence - based and reflective practice (Excellence); and

· Value diversity, democracy, and social justice (Ethics).

The School of Education consists of three academic departments: The Departments of Educational and Community Programs, Elementary and Early Childhood Education, and Secondary Education and Youth Services. The School of Education offers programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, with an enrollment of approximately 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students across the three departments. As an Educator Preparation Provider (EPP), the School of Education is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and oversees approximately 150 registered New York State licensure programs. We also offer accredited programs in school psychology, counselor education, and mental health counseling. Reporting directly to the Dean, the Associate Dean will work closely with the Dean, the Director of Assessment and Accreditation, and the Director of Professional Practice and Community Partnerships to oversee and monitor program development and registration and CAEP accreditation to advance the mission of the School of Education.

Responsibilities for this position include but are not limited to:

· Facilitate, review, and guide curriculum design, revision, and approval throughout all phases of the curriculum development process.

· Ensure that the curriculum, including field and clinical experiences, supports the mission of the School of Education and represents diversity of both ideas and peoples and situates equity as central to student success.

· Assist in the creation of a model of curricular equity that values human diversity in all forms and treats diversity not as an idea to be studied but as a value to be lived.

· Facilitate and encourage the expansion of online curriculum in the School of Education.

· Assist in the development of the School of Education’s Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) program.

· Assist the Dean and Department Chairs in achieving goals aligned with the College’s Strategic Plan on curriculum development and assessment.

· Act as the School of Education point of contact for the College, CUNY, and the New York State Education Department regarding program registration, requirements, discontinuance, and other programmatic issues.

· Oversee the School of Education’s efforts toward accreditation, which may include (but not limited to) program accreditation, specialized professional association (SPA) accreditation, and Middle States reviews.

· Provide leadership in implementing the School of Education’s 3-Year Strategic Plan, with a focus on achieving and assessing outcomes for reaccreditation.

· Organize and lead recruitment efforts in the School of Education with a focus on the retention of diverse and underrepresented student populations and on-time graduation, academic growth, and success.

· Oversee diversity programs, such as NYS Men Teach and the Teacher Opportunity Corp (TOC).

· Additional duties as assigned.
