Job Details

The Bard Early Colleges, tuition-free, satellite campuses of Bard College operated through partnerships with public school systems, are founded on the belief that many high-school-age students are eager and ready for the intellectual challenges of a college education.

Employer Website:
The Dean of Students is a full-time, exempt position of Bard Early College. The successful candidate will excel at working in a community that is broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation and religion.

Bard Early College seeks a Dean of Students to lead a growing and successful early college initiative in New York’s Hudson Valley. The Dean of Students is the senior regional leader for Bard Early College’s national college access and immersion program for high school-aged students, the Bard Sequence. Bard Early College’s two campuses in the Hudson Valley region are in Hyde Park (at Salt Point) and Hudson (on Warren Street). Each campus welcomes a small cohort of students from high schools across the region for an afternoon session of early college courses and academic guidance programming. The Dean of Students reports to the Director of the Bard Sequence and supervises up to two regional coordinators.

About the Bard Early Colleges:
The Bard Early Colleges (BEC) are founded on the belief that, for many young people, college can and should start at an earlier age. Bard Early College’s simple idea - to begin serious college study in place of the traditional 11th and 12th grades, at no cost to students or families - has had an extraordinary impact on young people and on education innovation and equity in America.

The Bard Early Colleges offer a truly unique home for young people’s intellectual ambition: as both tuition-free, branch campuses of Bard College and public high schools, they award a high school diploma and as much as a Bard College Associate in Arts degree (and 60 transferable credits) by the end of the 12th grade. Students are taught by college faculty in undergraduate, seminar classes, all deeply rooted in the liberal arts and sciences, in Bard College’s commitment to excellence in teaching, and in Bard’s mission as a private college in the public interest.

Now entering its third decade, the Bard Early College network enrolls over 3,000 young people in campuses in NYC; Newark, New Jersey; New Orleans, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; Washington, D.C.; and Hudson, New York. Over 80% have completed bachelor’s degrees after graduating from the Bard Early College - far above the national average - and more than half are first-generation college students.

Roles & Responsibilities:
  • To create an intellectually inspiring space for young people to begin a serious and supportive college curriculum while concurrently enrolled in high school
  • To lead the daily operations of two small, robust early college campuses for roughly 45 students in the Hudson Valley, including coordination with high schools, parents/guardians, and BEC Hudson Valley faculty
  • To engage with parents/guardians, students, and colleagues at partner high schools to strengthen understanding of and engagement with BEC Hudson Valley
  • To lead recruitment of prospective students through current and prospective partner high schools
  • To develop and lead student guidance and support structures that meet the learning and socio-emotional needs of all young people enrolled
  • The Dean of Students should be, above all, passionate about improving public education for all young people and committed to educational opportunity, equity, and excellence. Successful candidates will possess the following qualifications:
  • Master’s degree or higher
  • Professional experience in a youth-serving context
  • Excellent writing and communication skills
  • Responsive and reliable, with strong project management and time management skills
  • Demonstrated ability to work successfully in multi-faceted, team-oriented environment, as well as the ability to work independently
Physical Demands:
  • Must be able to sit for extended periods of time and work in standard office environment
  • Must be able to occasionally lift 20 pounds
  • Regular travel to high schools and other partners sites throughout the Hudson Valley
While salary will be commensurate with experience, the expected range is between $70,000 and $75,000
