Baruch College – Associate Director of Quantitative Student Support   

Job Description:

Baruch College of the City University of New York is a catalyst for the social, cultural, and financial mobility of a diverse student body. It is ranked among the region's and nation's top colleges by U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and Princeton Review.

This mission of the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs is to empower the next generation of public and nonprofit leaders, advance knowledge about public life and policy, and engage communities across the city, nation, and world to foster effective, inclusive institutions and societies.

Reporting to the Associate Dean, the Associate Director of Quantitative Student Support will develop curriculum , manage and implement a variety of workshops, tutoring programs and other interventions to improve professional master’s students’ quantitative and analytical skills. Quantitative skills are those needed for applied statistics, research and analysis, economics and budgeting courses, as well as to ensure students are quantitatively literate in an era of growing data importance.  Some students have had lifelong problems with math and quantitative skills. Other students succeeded in their courses but do not have the deep level of comfort needed to reach the next stage. Yet other students have stale skills and even those with the strongest skills need to sharpen them to improve their data analysis. An important goal is to support students so that they can understand analysis, enough to critically assess and make effective use of it, rather than an ability to accomplish tasks by rote.

Specific duties:

- Collaborate with faculty, administrators, and staff to determine how best to meet students’ quantitative needs
- Lead effort, in collaboration with Marxe School faculty and administrators, to assess and document quantitative analysis needs, inventory curricula, and serve as an institutional specialist for quantitative student support across the School’s graduate programs
- Develop and refine curriculum and materials
- Develop and facilitate a semester-long workshop for students whose previous records show them to need extensive work in basic quantitative areas.
- Conduct formative evaluation of and refine this workshop accordingly
- Consult with faculty who would like to improve their pedagogical and psycho-social approaches to teaching students quantitative skills.
- Provide summer and winter pre-semester workshops for students identified by the admissions committee as needing refreshers to begin their program.
- Develop and provide other workshops and sessions available to all Marxe graduate students throughout the academic year
- Oversee peer tutoring
