Director of Student Success Initiatives
Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law
Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law invites applications for the position of Director of Student Success Initiatives, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2019. This is a full-time, non-tenure-track position, and it covers both academic support and bar preparation.
The Director’s primary responsibility will be to work with students to help them develop the skills needed to reach their full academic potential for performance in law school and on the bar exam. Responsibilities include: (1) designing and implementing academic support programs; (2) designing and assisting with the law school’s bar exam preparation programs; (3) teaching the law school’s third-year bar preparation course each semester; and (4) teaching the two-semester Legal Studies course for NKU Chase’s evening students. Candidates must be willing to work some evenings, so as to be able to teach the Legal Studies course and to provide academic support for students in the evening division.
Applicants must have a J.D., a strong academic record, excellent organizational and interpersonal skills, the ability to work collaboratively, and excellent communication skills. Experience in a law school academic support program or other relevant teaching experience is preferred. Candidates should also have an understanding of the dynamics of diversity (including first-generation college graduates) in higher education and a demonstrated ability to incorporate this understanding, as appropriate, in all levels of their work. Salary will be commensurate with experience, but we anticipate the salary being between $75,000 and $80,000 (plus full benefits) per 12-month year.
Founded in 1893, the Salmon P. Chase College of Law has for 125 years provided service to students and the legal community throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky and across the Ohio River to Cincinnati and southwest Ohio.
