Administrative Assistant Dean and Faculty in Leadership with a Focus on Racial Justice
Bard College’s MBA in Sustainability program, based in NYC, is hiring a full-time Assistant Dean. The successful candidate will have a specialization in personal and organizational leadership, teach two courses per year, and contribute to leadership education at the MBA. A key goal for this position will be to help fully integrate education for anti-racist business leadership into the MBA curriculum.
Bard’s MBA program fully embeds within all courses a focus on sustainability, defined as shared well-being on a healthy planet. This cannot be achieved without dismantling white supremacy and systemic racism, and so the MBA program is developing a pro-active strategy to support students to become effective anti-racist business leaders.
Faculty members teach during intensive weekend residencies held once a month in Manhattan; in addition, they teach an online evening session each week between the monthly residencies. The Assistant Dean will be expected to spend at least one day per week on the Bard campus in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY. Bard is easily accessible by train from New York City. The position thus allows for flexibility in residential location.
Requirements include a Ph.D., J.D., or relevant Masters degree. Successful candidates will have an established record of excellence in teaching in formal or informal settings, as well as demonstrated commitment to anti-racism leadership. A background in education or business administration is preferred; experience within MBA programs is not required.
To apply, send a cover letter, CV, and names and contact information for three references to http://apply.interfolio.com/81783. Applications will be reviewed as received.
