The Graduate School of Leadership & Change seeks two passionate senior scholar-practitioners whose research and practice engages highly motivated learners in robust cross-sector inquiry into the thorny issues of our times. We are open to a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds with preferred areas to include but are not limited to: higher education, the arts, sustainability, pro-inclusive and anti-racist leadership and change practices, neuroscience and leadership, spirituality and leadership, and advocacy for the social, economic, and environmental justice. The successful candidates will join our extraordinary mission-driven interdisciplinary faculty team in the training of emerging scholar-practitioners as active public intellectuals in their sectors and professions. 


The School’s highly successful PhD in Leadership & Change enters its 21st year with over 300 alumni and 150 active learners, an @80% graduation rate, and a highly diverse, productive and innovative faculty team and student body. The PhD’s paradigm-shifting low-residency, cohort-structured, competency-based (not course-based) program serves experienced practitioners in a wide array of sectors and professions. The program’s outcomes-based curriculum blends face-to-face residencies (and will return to this after the pandemic!) with uniquely designed virtual technologies to support a dynamic, geographically dispersed and networked learning community.  Our model addresses the knowledge and capabilities scholars need to conduct bold research that can have positive impacts on leading change for equitable and sustainable futures in organizations and communities around the globe.


Successful applicants must have: a doctorate in an area related to our interdisciplinary curriculum; an established record of research and practice equivalent to level of Full Professor; substantial experience advising doctoral students and chairing dissertations; experience teaching a broad range of research methods; comfort with and interest in utilizing academic technologies for innovative teaching and learning; a lively spirit of academic experimentation and a belief in the power of education to “win victories for humanity.”


Primary responsibilities: Teaching theories, research and practices of leading change as well as broad range of research methods; evaluating student work in an iterative and narrative format; advising, advising and mentoring doctoral students; chairing dissertations; facilitating learning within geographically dispersed technology-enabled student body; and collaborating with a highly engaged interdisciplinary faculty team.

  • Fulltime positions at Full Professor level
  • Multi-year rolling contracts
  • Work from home offices anywhere in US
  • Trimester travel will be required (post-pandemic)
  • Start date is Summer 2022 or sooner; some flexibility
