Brooklyn College of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Department of School Psychology, Counseling, and Leadership; M.Sc. Program in Educational Leadership with a starting date in August 2024. 

Brooklyn College serves students from as many as 150 countries who speak over 100 languages and dialects and thus constitutes a vibrant microcosm of the rich diversity and energy that characterizes the borough of Brooklyn and the greater New York City area itself. Its mission features “a special commitment to educate immigrant and first-generation college students from the diverse communities that make up our city and state.” The college ethos is strongly invested in the educational and career success of a population that encompasses a multiplicity of nationalities, ethnicities, religions, cultures and languages. We are committed to fostering a spirit of camaraderie and shared ideals across the entire spectrum of our varied constituency.  By accessing a first-class and affordable college education in an inclusive and nurturing intellectual milieu, our students acquire the skills, confidence, and global mindedness that allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing, unpredictable marketplace of ideas that is increasingly mindless of borders and spans the gamut of cultures and vernaculars. 

To this end, the college seeks faculty who are eager to engage with the diversity of our student body and have a demonstrated commitment to inclusion and heterogeneity through teaching, research and/or service. We seek to recruit and retain faculty who reflect the mosaic of our student population.  Successful candidates will bring their unique creativity, sensitivity, insights and perspectives to a community that welcomes innovation in scholarship and teaching. Together we will model the finest that a public urban liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies college can be for the present and future. 

Housed within the School of Education and the Department of School Psychology, Counseling and Leadership, the Educational Leadership program prepares students as professionals to support children’s and adolescents’ development in schools and diverse community settings. Embracing advocacy as a professional ethos, students will promote learning and healthy outcomes for individuals, families, and school communities. Our curriculum is uniquely structured in both scope and sequence to combine small-group, cohort-based colloquiums with content in management and instructional leadership along with a comprehensive fieldwork experience. 

The successful candidate is expected to serve as Program Head as well as teach graduate level educational leadership courses; supervise students in field experiences; advise and mentor students; pursue an active scholarship and a research agenda; participate in curriculum, program development, and accreditation; collaborate with school and agency partners; participate in public and professional activities in the field of educational leadership; and serve on department, school and university committees. Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusiveness through their research, teaching and/or service are encouraged to apply.
