Associate Professor or Full Professor (with tenure) and Director of EdD in Educational Leadership Program
The University of Washington Tacoma’s School of Education announces an opening for Director of the Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership (EdD) at the rank of associate or full professor (with tenure).
This is a full-time faculty position with an administrative appointment with a preferred start date of August 1, 2024. The administrative appointment service period is equal to 10 months; the 100% tenured faculty appointment service period is 9 months (September 16-June 15 of each academic year). Reassigned time will be given for the successful candidate to fulfill the administrative duties of the Director during the academic year, and the equivalent of one month of compensated administrative time is expected in the summer months to support the EdD programs.
Pursuant to the requirements set forth by UW’s Office of Academic Personnel, all prospective part-time lecturers and teaching associates/field supervisors are required to submit materials for review by a school’s or unit’s Elected Faculty Council or voting-eligible full-time faculty. A favorable vote among the faculty is required before an applicant is formally approved to teach for any academic unit at UW. UW Tacoma’s Office of the Chancellor and UW’s Academic HR Office are the final hiring authorities.
Process for returning part-time lecturers and teaching associates:
Each year, the School’s Elected Faculty Council is required by UW to vote on the renewal of returning part-time lecturers and teaching associates/field supervisors. Anyone who has not been employed with UW as academic personnel for more than 1 calendar year is considered by UW to be “separated” and these individuals are, with absolutely no exceptions, required to go through the hiring process and submit updated documents as requested. Additionally, the successful completion of a sexual misconduct form is a requirement before any new academic appointments are extended, including for new applicants and those separated for more than 1 calendar year. More information will be provided prior to the appointment process.
Note: qualified and fully approved applicants will be offered opportunities as they become available. However, please note that we may not always have supervision or teaching opportunities available, even for approved applicants.
