The Isabelle Farrington College of Education & Human Development (FCEHD) at Sacred Heart University (SHU) invites applications from qualified candidates for a full-time, twelve (12)-month appointment at the rank of Clinical Assistant or Associate Professor.  The successful candidate will serve as a core faculty member for FCEHD's online master's degree programs in the department of Counselor Education.  The department includes online master’s degrees in clinical Mental Health Counseling, School Counseling, Higher Education and Student Affairs as well as an Advanced Certificate in Play Therapy.  Review of applications will begin immediately with an anticipated start date of Fall 2024.

The Clinical Assistant/Associate Professor position will require an innovative, self-sufficient, and critical thinker who can work within a collaborative online environment.  The successful candidate will teach core courses, practicums and internships, and will support the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. 

Sacred Heart University’s (SHU) Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is uniquely designed with the mission, vision, and values of SHU at its heart. In the spirit of whole person wellness, the philosophical tenants of counseling, as a field, align well with SHU. With careful attention to the comprehensive standards set forth by CACREP, SHU’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling program focuses on integrity, respect, and the ethical care of our learners and those they serve.  Building on SHU’s experience of delivering academic excellence in a low-residency, online format allows for broader outreach to diverse adult learner populations. 

The Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program strongly supports SHU’s Farrington College of Education & Human Development’s goal of preparing educational leaders to “personally and professionally make a difference in the global community.” Additionally, the program aligns to Sacred Heart University’s Core Values. Specifically, the program is committed to excellence by actively pursuing truth and knowledge through the teaching and scholarship of its faculty and students. The program is committed to the common good of society by addressing significant (and growing) societal issues. It explicitly recognizes the dignity and worth of every human being by focusing on prevention, resilience, and the holistic well-being of all individuals. 

The successful candidate will be expected to:

  • Demonstrate the ability to work collaboratively with faculty and staff and collaborate to identify and solve problems and engage in program improvement.
  • Demonstrate the skills and ability to organize the work of self and others.
  • Demonstrate attention to detail and the ability to meet deadlines.
  • Design, develop, and teach courses for the online master's programs in counseling.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of and experience in employing best practices in the assessment of student learning and academic program outcomes.
  • Demonstrate the ability to engage graduate students and community partners.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of state licensure and program approval processes for counseling and related programs.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of national accreditation processes for counseling and related programs (e.g., CACREP, COAMFTE).
  • Demonstrate the ability to maintain and organize regulatory and compliance documentation, reports, and other metrics using electronic media.
  • Demonstrate the ability to use relevant information and individual judgment to determine whether events or processes comply with laws, regulations, or standards.
  • Demonstrate computer proficiency with Microsoft office (Word, Excel, and Outlook).
  • Demonstrate knowledge of counseling privacy and other protocols including HIPPA, HITECH, FERPA, and state/district policies, as they apply to student records and field experiences.
