The following information is from an e-mail that was recently sent to the ASP listserv. Please excuse any spacing problems. Typepad is not a happy camper this morning!
Regent is seeking to hire in a tenure-track faculty position an Associate Director of Academic Success.
The person would also have faculty rank as either an Assistant or Associate Professor, depending on experience, publication record, and other factors in his or her background. The person would assist me in running the program by meeting with students in one-on- one advising sessions and by helping direct our Summer Academic Success Program and our Study Skills Workshops. (Please see our website at http://www.regent.edu/acad/schlaw/academicsuccess/home.cfm
for general information about our program.) In addition to assisting me in our Academic Success Program, this person would teach one doctrinal course per semester. The specific course taught would depend on the person's interests and experience and on our curricular needs.
I am excited about this new position and believe it will provide a great opportunity for someone with a strong desire to work in the academic support field to obtain tenure-track (and hopefully ultimately tenured) status. The position will also enable someone to combine his or her love of academic support with his or her desire to teach a doctrinal course each semester. The position will begin in the 2008-09 academic year, and the compensation level will reflect the tenure-track rank of the position.
Candidates should have excellent academic records and interpersonal skills and should have demonstrated potential for outstanding teaching and scholarly achievement. Candidates with a background in the ASP field are particularly encouraged, as I believe that candidates for this position should have the desire to become an educational specialist at the law school.
