Detailed Job Description

Dean of the College of Education
Seattle, Washington

Seattle University (SU), a nationally-ranked independent Jesuit-Catholic institution adjacent to downtown Seattle, seeks an inspiring and experienced leader to serve as the Dean of the College of Education (COE). Reporting to the Provost, and working in collaboration with faculty, students, and staff, the Dean will build upon the many strengths of the COE – including its multidisciplinary programs and commitment to social justice – to ensure that the College continues to serve as a preeminent hub for training outstanding educators and leaders.

Founded in 1891, SU is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States. SU currently enrolls more than 7,700 graduate and undergraduate students within eight schools and colleges. In 2012, U.S. News & World Report listed SU among the top ten universities in the West, and the Fiske Guide to Colleges named SU as a “Best Buy,” a distinction given to institutions that provide a high-caliber academic experience at a lower cost. SU is among the most diverse independent universities in the West: 40 percent of its students are from ethnically diverse background and SU has representation from 77 nations and all 50 states.

The SU COE seeks to prepare students not only for educational careers but also for leadership for a just and humane world. The College, founded in 1935, has a distinguished alumni base of leaders across all sectors of the education world. The College offers 12 Master’s level graduate programs, a doctoral degree and several certificate programs. It is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the College has one of the highest teacher-placement rates in the state.

The Dean serves as the chief operating and academic officer for the COE and reports to the Provost. The Dean will lead the COE’s faculty and staff members while serving as an external representative for the College of Education among K-12 education leaders, state-level policy makers, and the broader community. To help the College of Education fulfill its potential, the Dean will address several challenges and opportunities:

• Lead and facilitate a conversation about the vision of and for the College
• Ensure that the College’s set of programs is sustainable and responsive to demand
• Generate sufficient revenues to support continued growth and excellence
