Georgia State University seeks a Faculty Director to lead the university’s new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), College to Career, a university-wide initiative to embed awareness, connection, and demonstration of career readiness in the curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular experiences of Georgia State undergraduate students. College to Career was selected as the next QEP for Georgia State after an extensive vetting process involving stakeholders from across all Georgia State campuses. To read more about the initiative, please seehttp://sacscoc.gsu.edu/quality-enhancement-plan/.
The Faculty Director will oversee the development, refinement, implementation, and assessment of College to Career and will work with various functional areas and key personnel in maintaining and managing the curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular components. Specific duties will include 1) engaging with faculty to connect existing curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular learning to career-readiness competencies, 2) creating, in partnership with CETL, appropriate development and training opportunities for faculty and staff, 3) coordinating with student services to facilitate career readiness programming 4) overseeing the collection and analysis of assessment data for the QEP, and 5) addressing any other matters related to the CTC’s successful implementation. The Faculty Director will report to the Office of Student Success and will supervise a small staff, potentially including an administrative assistant, a research associate, and faculty fellows.

A familiarity with educational technologies that might support the QEP as well as with curriculum mapping strategies and the assessment of student learning would be a plus.
