Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) announces that the search for its inaugural Director of the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program has been extended and invites expressions of interest, nominations, and applications.

Founded in 1849 as New Britain Normal School, Central is the oldest public institution of higher education in Connecticut and the largest of its regional comprehensive universities. Central’s 14:1 student/faculty ratio and its average class size of 25 allow it to provide a rich educational experience. CCSU is widely recognized for its international education program, and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement for Teaching has recognized Central for its high level of community engagement. Central was also selected for the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

The new director will have the opportunity to develop the DPT program from concept to full implementation. This will include curricular development, hiring and mentoring faculty and staff, designing the facilities necessary for the program, working with colleges and universities in the region to recruit students and create partnerships, and working with the healthcare community to connect CCSU’s program with the needs and opportunities of the region.

The successful candidate must meet all the CAPTE requirements for a program director. Since this is also a tenure-track faculty position, the successful candidate will need to meet the professional standards necessary for appointment at the rank of Associate Professor. Given Central’s special needs, familiarity with the standards and process of CAPTE accreditation; a record of service to culturally, ethnically or linguistically diverse groups; and experience as a physical therapist are especially helpful.
