The Department of Educational Administration (EDAD) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln invites applications for an assistant/associate professor (tenure-leading) in P-12 school leadership. EDAD is committed to preparing individuals to serve and lead P-20 educational organizations in the challenges and opportunities of contemporary teaching and learning. The position will be aligned primarily with the P-12 School Leadership Program.
The selected candidate will be expected to teach, including research methods courses, and advise in master's and doctoral programs. This includes supervision of Ed.D. and Ph.D. dissertations. EDAD faculty utilize face-to-face, hybrid, and distance education formats in teaching and advising students locally, regionally, and nationally. Within our programs, P-12 school leadership emphasizes the importance of policy and leadership in developing, improving, and sustaining leaders who effectively meet the challenges of contemporary teaching and learning. The person selected for this position will be expected to contribute to recent efforts to expand research expertise to a strong practitioner preparation program. In addition, the selected candidate will be expected to contribute to efforts to enhance the program's connectivity to P-12 schools and educational organizations across Nebraska and beyond. We are especially interested in individuals with research interests that strengthen our commitment to facilitating opportunity, equity, access, and success across the educational spectrum.
The Department of Educational Administration has been a part of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln since 1913. In the early years, our focus was solely on the preparation of administrators for elementary and secondary schools. In building on that legacy, faculty members recently developed three core competencies we seek to develop in EDAD P-12 program graduates (Visionary Thinker, Reflective Learner, Servant Leader). The P-12 school leadership program is actively engaged in UCEA, the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED), the Nebraska Council of School Administrators, and other organizations. While our commitment to the preparation of P-12 administrators continues, our programs have expanded to include higher education. In the early 1990's we added the doctoral specialization in Educational Leadership and Higher Education. In 2000 we added the master's degree specialization in Student Affairs Administration and in 2006 we began offering a graduate certificate in Community College Leadership.
