Dean of the School of Education

California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI) invites confidential inquiries, nominations, and applications for the position of Dean of the School of Education. The Dean of the School of Education is the chief academic, fiscal, and administrative officer of the School and reports to the Provost. The Dean works closely with the other Deans and Associate Vice Presidents in Academic Affairs, the Associate Dean, program Chairs and Directors, other units within the Division of Academic Affairs, other Divisions within the University, and the administrative support staff within Academic Affairs.

The newest addition to the California State University system, California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI) opened in 2002 with 629 transfer students and welcomed its first freshman class in 2003. Since that time, the University has grown and developed into one of the premier public universities not only in California, but also in the nation. In 2019, CSUCI attained the inaugural Seal of Excelencia, granted by the Washington, D.C.-based organization, Excelencia in Education, for facilitating the success of Latinx students. CSUCI was also recognized by Time's MONEY Magazine as the 15th Most Transformative University in the nation based on post-graduate success and was ranked 20th in the nation for social mobility by CollegeNet for facilitating the economic mobility of its graduates.

As a regional public comprehensive university, CSUCI is a mission-based institution grounded in its four pillars of integrative approaches, community engagement, and multicultural and international perspectives. The faculty of CSUCI engage students in an inquiry-based curriculum and are dedicated to educating civically engaged leaders for a global society. CSUCI encourages research and scholarly activity in the pursuit of academic excellence by both faculty and students. CSUCI is poised to continue to grow in size and renown, while maintaining an immersive and student-focused learning environment. CSUCI offers 26 undergraduate majors, 6 graduate degrees, and a variety of certificate and teaching credential programs.

The 1200-acre University campus is located in coastal Ventura County and is home to more than 7,000 undergraduate and nearly 250 graduate students. A proud Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), 56% of the CSUCI students are Latinx, 25% are White, 2% are African-American, 6% are Asian-American, and 4% are multiracial.

The School of Education builds from the foundations of the undergraduate Liberal Studies option in Teaching & Learning, the undergraduate Early Childhood Studies program, and academic majors in biology, English, mathematics, history, and social studies, and extends to the Masters of Arts in Education. The School's programs contribute to the education profession by producing teachers and school administrators who believe that all students have the ability to achieve high standards, who adapt their teaching to reach all students and who embrace the diversity of all students. These graduates are reflective about their teaching, their attitudes, and their ability to work in collaborative analytical teams. The School strives to prepare educators to uplift, inspire, and engage all students, families, and communities with whom they work and works to advance issues of equity, diversity, inclusion, and teaching/educating for justice.

CSUCI seeks a Dean who exemplifies excellent leadership and management; fosters collaborative and data-informed planning, execution, and accountability; advances CSUCI's HSI and region-serving purpose; and enhances the University's campus culture.
