9Director of Academic Advising
Southern Connecticut State University  
Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) seeks a creative and experienced leader to serve as Director of Academic Advising. Located in historic New Haven, a city rich in art and culture, Southern Connecticut State University is a diverse and student-centered university dedicated to academic excellence, access, and service for the public good. Southern provides a supportive and welcoming environment for all members of its community through a campus wide commitment to social justice.

Reporting to the Vice President for Student Affairs, the redesigned Director position is a unique opportunity for a high energy, innovative, thoughtful risk taker to provide strategic leadership and vision for the full development and implementation of a comprehensive model of undergraduate advising. Partnering with the Faculty Director of Undergraduate Advising, the Director is responsible for delivering a consistent and highly effective academic advising experience for all students, to help students who may be at a higher risk of disengagement due to their lack of connection with an academic department, and to help deepen the advising relationships for students within their majors. Southern's new model is inclusive of advising activities deemed to be essential for students who successfully complete a planned program of study in four years, and a constellation of additional advising actions beyond the traditional faculty-advisor model for various subgroups of students (undeclared, change of majors, transfer, and struggling students). It presumes strong advising relationships that move beyond the course registration process to meaningful interactions that help students discover their potential, purpose, and passions.

The new Director will demonstrate capacity to transform eight academic advising centers (serving "neighborhoods" of associated academic departments) into hubs of connectivity and engagement grounded in social justice and inclusion. Additionally, the Director will ensure the department is responsive to changes in student demographics and emerging trends in academic advising; develop strong and effective partnerships with stakeholders across campus; optimize available technology for communication and the effective delivery of services; advance the mission and strategic direction of the university; positively impact university outcomes including recruitment and retention; and, implement effective data collection, analysis, and reporting systems that demonstrate desired outcomes and inform strategic resource allocation and direction.

The Director of Academic Advising must have a master's degree in higher education, student affairs, or related field and a minimum of five years' full-time, progressive experience in academic advising within higher education or related area. The successful candidate will have a strong working knowledge of academic advising, student development, and student retention; direct experience working successfully with diverse populations, demonstrating multicultural competence, and demonstrating a clear commitment to social justice; highly effective written and oral communication skills with the ability to deliver information in a clear, concise and articulate manner to multiple stakeholder groups; proven leadership and management skills, particularly as they relate to advancing innovative practices, building strategic partnerships, and leveraging team capacity; and, effective staff development and supervision.

For priority consideration, please submit a letter of interest, resume, and contact information for three professional references to Nancy Chucta at studentaffairs@southernct.edu. Review of applications will begin on October 31, 2018 and the position will remain open until filled.

North Park University  
Founding Program Director for the Doctor of Occupational Therapy Program (OTD)



North Park University, in partnership with the national search firm of Scott Healy & Associates, seeks a dynamic and entrepreneurial leader to serve as their Founding Program Director of their Doctor of Occupational Therapy Program. North Park University invites applications and nominations for this exciting opportunity to build the new doctoral program from the ground up. Reporting to the Dean of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, the program director will lead the OTD program in supporting the advancement of OT practice within the institution, local community, and region.

North Park University (NPU)

Founded in 1891 by the Evangelical Covenant Church, North Park University is located on Chicago's north side and enrolls 3,200 students from around the world. At North Park, excellence implies not only a deep tradition in the liberal arts and Christian faith, but a spirit of reaching out to serve and learn from the dynamic community around us. Rooted in the Christian faith, North Park welcomes students from all faith backgrounds and fosters an understanding of all beliefs. At North Park you'll find a dialogue that nurtures spiritual growth and exploration.



Mission: The mission of North Park University, as the University of the Evangelical Covenant Church, is to prepare students for lives of significance and service through education in the liberal arts, professional studies, and theology.



Vision: Building on our core institutional identity-Christian, city-centered, intercultural-our vision is to create a university of uncommon character and enduring excellence, where faith, learning, and service meet.



The Chicagoland Area

Chicago is our classroom and all Chicagoans are our teachers. Located on Foster Avenue in Chicago's North Side Albany Park and North Park neighborhoods, the University takes full advantage of the opportunities our urban environment affords. With 2.7 million residents in the city limits-and nearly 10 million people in metropolitan Chicagoland-this is the third largest city and metro in the nation, and a destination for 55 million visitors each year from all over the world. The iconic skyline (the John Hancock Center, Willis (formerly Sears) Tower, Aon Center, and Trump Tower feature prominently among the tallest buildings in the nation) can be seen from places across the campus, reminding viewers of the businesses, industries, and people that have built Chicago into the world-class city it is today.



For NPU's students, the city is an integral part of learning, entertainment, and service experiences. Because of NPU's Chicago location, the campus community can travel easily by public transportation to internships downtown or in other neighborhoods. The professors use Chicago to help with learning about people, history, economics, languages, communication-the city offers hands-on experiences in nearly every subject and discipline.



The Position

The program director will oversee the ACOTE accreditation process, develop policies and procedures for the program, recruit, hire, and evaluate the fieldwork coordinator, instructional faculty, and staff, support the design, evaluation, and enhancement of the curriculum and establish and manage the program budget.

The program director will have a 11-month Academic Administrator role with a tenure-track faculty appointment that includes teaching, professional development, and development of local and regional partnerships.
