Position Number   FA9960
Position Type:   Full Time
Position Title   Associate Chair, BUSI
Work Year:   Academic Year


SCAD Savannah seeks a full-time associate chair of business to provide vision and leadership for the business discipline within the department of liberal arts and to guide students through the business courses in SCAD’s general education curriculum.


The SCAD business curriculum empowers students to design agile business strategies, identify market opportunities, conduct data-driven analysis, and implement and manage creative projects. These courses equip students with the fundamental business knowledge essential to success in the professions that fuel the creative economy. 


As the associate chair of business, you will be responsible for day-to-day operations of your department and will work closely with the dean of the School of Liberal Arts to provide strategic direction. You will work with business faculty in a range of areas, including curriculum development, assessment and accreditation, and targeted initiatives to build a substantial reputation for the quality of the department while creating a strong sense of collegiality. You will conduct class and annual evaluations, provide mentorship and faculty development opportunities, and make decisions on student academic matters. You will also assist with the hiring of business faculty and teach business courses, among other duties.


The successful candidate is a superb communicator with equally exceptional interpersonal skills. You should be an enthusiastic educator with passion for business and creative industries, a strong desire to share knowledge in relevant and applicable ways, and the ability to motivate students and faculty to think creatively and critically. A demonstrated record of leadership in academic or business environments is preferred; the ability to efficiently manage administrative duties is required.


This is your chance to work with remarkable students and faculty in a vibrant and entrepreneurial workplace woven throughout the historic district of Savannah, Ga. — a walkable, bikeable coastal city named one of TIME magazine’s “World’s 100 Greatest Places of 2021.” Savannah’s inviting climate and a culturally rich downtown provide a living laboratory for the study of art and design and a richly layered learning environment in which students, faculty, and staff flourish.



  • Terminal degree in a related discipline
  • Leadership and supervisory experience in an academic environment
  • Experience with curriculum development and assessment
  • Enthusiasm for teaching and positive student learning environments
