Founding Dean of Education and Academic Development
Foster Excellence in Teaching, Reasarch and Innovation

The University of Windsor is one of Canada’s most diverse and comprehensive universities. Situated in the southernmost part of Canada, with over 16,000 full-time and part-time students, the campus is undergoing significant transformation, both with respect to the delivery of its many academic and professional programs and through an exciting redevelopment of its campus.

As part of this larger transformation, the University has brought together the academic and staff resources of the Faculty of Education and those of the Centre for Teaching and Learning to create a new Faculty of Education and Academic Development. This presents a unique opportunity to establish a Faculty that will be recognized as a leader in education and professional development, combining a commitment to excellence in teaching and research, with a collaborative spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship.

As the Founding Dean, building on core strengths you will define a new shared vision for a Faculty that provides a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and professional development programs for teachers and scholars in the field of education. You will focus the combined teaching, technical and creative resources of the new Faculty to enhance teaching across the University and develop programs that will mark the University as a leader in the many arenas of lifelong learning. You will cultivate relationships with colleagues and work collaboratively with other Faculties and departments across the University setting the foundation for success.

A member of the University’s academic leadership, you will bring to the role a distinguished record of academic achievement in education and learning. Responsibilities in a leadership role have given you the confidence to make thoughtful strategic and administrative decisions. You are an effective, persuasive communicator with a leadership style founded on a concern for your colleagues and staff.

The University of Windsor is committed to equity in its policies, practices and programs, and supports diversity in its teaching, learning and work environments. The University encourages applications from women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and members of sexual minority groups. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
