SCAD seeks an Associate Chair for the university’s social strategy and management program to help lead faculty members as they prepare the next generation of social media creatives.
 

In this role you will develop a strategic plan for the department in consultation with the dean and department members that is consistent with SCAD School of Business Innovation goals and the overall SCAD strategic plan. This includes creating a curriculum that reflects and prepares students for modern trends in social strategy and management, providing recommendations for faculty service and professional development, fostering interdepartmental collaboration, and enhancing the reputation of the SCAD social strategy and management department in academic and professional circles. Partnering with the admission department, you will assist with the recruitment of talented undergraduate and graduate students to SCAD and to the department.

As associate chair you will teach assigned classes, identify professional visitors and speakers, and collaborate with the office for career and alumni success, as well as industry employers, to promote internships and professional opportunities for students. You will evaluate professors within the department through class observations and student evaluations, work with the dean to provide professional-development opportunities for professors, and support the daily administration of the advertising academic department. Among other duties, you will also oversee the departmental budget and coordinate the department calendar of events.

The successful candidate is a social-media powerhouse, proficient in strategy and the technical aspects of social media optimization, digital-content ecosystems, in-depth social reports and insights, content creation, and distribution for the digital space. Experience with the creation, tracking, and analysis of digital content is a must, as is a wealth of knowledge about advertising, branding, marketing, and writing content across platforms — especially new media. Ideally, the candidate is also experienced with managing social media strategy, content, and communication plans for clients in a diverse range of industries.
