Dean of the College of Education

California State University Long Beach (CSULB) seeks a Dean to execute collaborative, innovative, inspirational, and transparent leadership for the present and future of the College of Education. The Dean is expected to begin in the summer of 2023.

California State University Long Beach is a diverse, learning-centered, globally-engaged public university and minority serving institution. Three national rankings by Money.com place CSULB in the Top 1% of public universities in the nation. For these rankings, Money assessed factors such as educational quality, tuition, financial aid awards, graduation rates, debt load and early-career earnings to yield No. 17 (https://money.com/best-colleges/rankings/best-public-colleges/), No. 27 (https://money.com/best-colleges/), and No. 11 (https://money.com/best-colleges/rankings/most-transformative-colleges/) spots. In addition, CSULB is ranked No. 1 in the nation for its impact in driving social mobility, according to a new ranking published by Education Reform Now, a national think tank and advocacy organization for the American public education system. The Wall Street Journal/ Times Higher Education has ranked CSULB No. 4 in the nation for campus diversity. The California State University prepares 10 percent of all the nation’s teachers and CSULB prepares the largest number of elementary, secondary and special education teachers in the system.

The new Dean will play a critical leadership role in the success of Beach 2030, an ambitious planning initiative launched in the fall of 2018 (more detail is available at https://www.csulb.edu/beach-2030).

The College of Education at CSULB is among the premier educator preparation institutions in the state, preparing teachers, counselors, administrators and community leaders to promote equity and excellence in education. The College fosters an environment of rigorous learning, intellectual dialogue, and inclusivity that embraces its mission to prepare professional educators and practitioners who promote equity and excellence in diverse urban settings through effective pedagogy, evidence-based practices, collaboration, leadership, innovation, scholarship, and advocacy. The College seeks colleagues who are committed to its mission and are skilled at teaching and working in environments that reflect CSULB’s designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution and an Asian American, Native American and Pacific Islander Serving Institution.

In addition to three certificate programs and a variety of teaching and other professional credentials (all accredited by the https://www.ctc.ca.gov/), the College offers a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, 14 master’s programs in education and counseling, and the Educational Leadership Doctoral degree. The Urban Dual Credential Program (UDCP) was the first of its kind in California and drew the interest of the Governor’s Office, the CA Dept of Education, and the CTC as model of deep clinical practice. College faculty, staff and students are deeply involved in community outreach.

Required qualifications for the Dean include an earned terminal degree from an accredited institution; an excellent record of university teaching, scholarship and service that would warrant appointment at the rank of full professor in one of the disciplines housed in the college; demonstrated effectiveness in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion for faculty, staff, and students; and the demonstrated ability to lead in the areas of teaching, research, and public service in urban education. For full qualifications, see the profile at https://apptrkr.com/3752950.

Priority consideration will be given to materials received by February 6, 2023. Application instructions and materials required are found in the profile mentioned above.
