Duquesne is seeking applicants for the newly-funded position of "Director of the Academic Excellence Program."
This position serves as Director of Academic Support for the School of Law. The Director will have a 12-month non-faculty, full-time administrative appointment. The Director will administer and advance the School’s academic support program, which assists law students as they develop and improve legal study, writing, and test-taking skills, adjust to the challenges of law school, and prepare to enter law practice. He/she will work with law school faculty and administrative staff to create and present first-year orientation and academic skills programs and to coordinate a yearlong peer mentoring program. The Director will design and implement programming to enhance the professional development of second- and third-year students as they make curricular choices, sharpen their academic skill, and prepare to take the bar examination. As a complement to programming, the Director will also work closely with individual first-year and upper-level students to improve their academic and professional skills. He/she may assume other duties related to law student services as well, such as working with students for whom English is a second language.
