Ohio University  
Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences

Ohio University (www.ohio.edu) invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.



THE UNIVERSITY



Ohio University (OHIO) was chartered by the State of Ohio in 1804 and is the oldest university in Ohio and the Northwest Territory. Ohio University is a comprehensive research university with the largest osteopathic medical school in the state, and 10 other colleges that offer over 250 degree undergraduate and graduate programs. An active and engaged campus yields more than 6,000 alumni with each graduating class, thus giving Ohio University 230,000 alumni worldwide. The University's total enrollment is just over 36,000 students and the University has 5,300+ faculty and staff located on the main campus, seven regional campuses and centers in Southern and Central Ohio, as well as in its e-learning programs. Located in the scenic Appalachian foothills of Southeastern Ohio, its classic residential campus is one of the most attractive in the nation. The charm of tree- lined brick walkways on the University's College Green makes you feel as if you are at a small college rather than a large university. Its regional campuses focus on providing access to " the national's best transformative learning community" for students in Ohio and beyond.



OHIO offers a compelling academic experience as it collectively aims to be transformative, values-based and committed to the production of knowledge across the disciplines. Through traditional and experiential learning, OHIO prepares its alumni to be global leaders who will enrich society with accessible knowledge and innovation. OHIO is a university, with a history of academic distinction and community engagement. Through its local, national, and international connections and relationships with a network of institutional and industry partners and alumni, OHIO is contributing to social change, new learning, and novel technologies with lasting positive impact.



Unique to OHIO in Athens and Appalachia, is a distinct 'sense of place' at OHIO and in the region. The families who have lived in the region for centuries and those who are newcomers - whether from the U.S. or around the world - are weaved into the diversity of the community that creates an enriching and dynamic culture. There is a synergy derived from the natural habitat and biodiversity of the region and the beauty of the university campus, its people, and our location in which the 200+ year institution has evolved into the place that it is today. This 'sense of place' is embedded within the OHIO culture that supports a welcoming, supportive, and safe environment for achieving academic excellence and contributing back to the community.



THE COLLEGE



The Chronicle of Higher Education recently recognized OHIO as one of six colleges in the country in fostering cutting-edge educational innovation. The College of Arts & Sciences is a central piece to Ohio University's transformative learning experience. The foundational instruction for the entire university, delivered through the general education and liberal arts curriculum, is provided by the College of Arts & Sciences. The college's breadth covers humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences across 19 departments. The college provides the primary instruction for approximately one-third of the undergraduate majors on campus, as well as half of the undergraduate credit hours on the Athens campus. This includes approximately 4000 undergraduate and 800 graduate students.



Ohio University is a high-activity research institution, and much of that scholarship and research activity originates in the College of Arts & Sciences.

In particular, we are seeking creative and collaborative candidates who use integrative, innovative approaches to determine the physiological mechanisms that underpin natural history and shape biotic responses to global change. Applications from candidates whose research focuses on tetrapods are especially encouraged. The successful candidate is expected to develop an extramurally funded research program that will enhance existing strengths in organismal biology, teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students (which may include a majors-level course in environmental physiology), and participate in service.

About the Department: The Department of Integrative Biology receives support for its academic program from the College of Science and has a doctoral program that is internationally ranked. Our existing faculty have expertise in marine, aquatic, and terrestrial ecology, evolution, organismal biology, disease ecology, and conservation biology, and take innovative and quantitative approaches that span molecules to ecosystems. We are thus seeking a colleague with high potential for engaging in both self-initiated and collaborative research across fields. In addition to the faculty's activities in research and service, the department has teaching responsibilities in nearly every undergraduate major at OSU, and an important role to play in enhancing student success. Thus, we are particularly interested in candidates with a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching, and experience collaborating with, advocating for, and mentoring people of diverse backgrounds. The department is committed to fostering an open and inclusive environment in which to learn and work, enhancing the diversity and equity of the university community, and improving access to higher education for underrepresented students.

Approximately 25,700 undergraduate and 4,700 graduate students are enrolled at OSU, with US students of color, first generation college students, and international students representing 25%, 23%, and 11% of the student population, respectively.

Piedmont College  
Dean of the School of Education

Piedmont College, a comprehensive, private liberal arts college with campuses in Demorest and Athens, GA, seeks a visionary and energetic academic administrator to lead its School of Education as Dean. Reporting to the Vice President of Academic Affairs, the Dean of the School of Education is a senior-level administrator and is an active participant on the VPAA's leadership team. Applications and nominations are invited.

The Opportunity

Piedmont College has been named a "Best College" and "Best Value" by US News & World Report among the Regional Universities in the South. Across two campuses, the College offers undergraduate and graduate programs, including doctoral degrees.

The new Dean will join Piedmont College at a significant time in its 121-year history. Undergraduate enrollment at the Demorest campus has increased by seven percent during each of the past five years. Residential enrollment has increased by 20 percent during the same time period.

The School of Education has more than 1,200 students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs and is one of the largest educational programs in the state. It also has achieved national prominence through its Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows program.

In addition to its undergraduate and graduate degree programs, the School of Education offers certification-only options on Piedmont's Athens and Demorest campuses. Beyond the two campuses, the school provides graduate degree programs to educators in off-campus cohorts in several locations across the state of Georgia.

The School of Education strives to prepare reflective, scholarly, proactive educators. The small class size and the cohesiveness of the Piedmont community help students to develop their full potential and to acquire the skills needed for successful professional careers.

One key aspect of the educational environment at Piedmont is the development of personalized pedagogy, whereby students are encouraged to understand and reflect upon their role as an educator. Pedagogy is conceptualized throughout every content thread in the program and is eventually applied in the classroom through field experience. In conjunction with local school districts, students choose from a wide variety of field placement options where they work in a student-teacher apprenticeship.

The School of Education has more than 30 full-time faculty members. These highly qualified individuals are skilled in their disciplines and bring a wealth of background experiences to the programs of study. Faculty members work well together and contribute to the overall success of the programs.

Undergraduate Programs

The School of Education's undergraduate programs include Drama Education, Early Childhood Education, Educational Studies, Middle Grades Education, and Secondary Education.

Additionally, the School of Education has certification-only options for individuals seeking coursework leading to teacher certification. These candidates usually have a degree and do not wish to pursue another degree, but who desire to teach. For certification-only, students may choose Drama Education (P-12); Early Childhood (Elementary) Education (P-5); Middle Grades Education (4-8); Language arts; Mathematics; Natural Sciences; Social Sciences; Music Education (P-12); Secondary Education (6-12); Broadfield Science; Special Education (P-12); General Curriculum; and Instructional Technology.

Graduate Programs

Piedmont College is a leader in graduate education in northeast Georgia. Degree programs include the Master of Arts in Teaching, Master of Arts, Education Specialist, and Doctor of Education. Courses are taught at the Athens and Demorest campuses.

The School of Education also offers professional educators the opportunity to earn the MA and EdS degrees off-campus in a cohort model in local school districts across the state of Georgia. Working with school officials, the College identifies a location that is convenient for teachers. Classes are held one or two evenings per week for eight-week periods, permitting educators to take two or three courses per semester. In the summer, classes for each course meet for four days.

School Leadership

For professional educators whose goals include serving as a school administrator, the School of Education offers a program in School Leadership with an emphasis on instructional leadership. Piedmont's School Leadership Certification Program is designed with the concept that the best school leaders are those who have a strong foundation in curriculum and instruction. The School seeks to prepare school leaders who view themselves as master teachers first. In addition to course work in leadership as well as curriculum and instruction, candidates complete an internship in the school setting.

The School of Education has an excellent reputation for improving teaching and learning with surrounding school systems. The School has been able to reach a number of school systems due to the unique cohort delivery model that has been in place for a number of years.

All Education programs are recognized and approved by Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC). The School of Education is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE), Association of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges of Teacher Education (AILACTE), Georgia Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (GACTE), and Georgia Association of Independent Colleges of Teacher Education (GAICTE).
