Director of the Institute for Educational Initiatives University of Notre Dame Job at APAP

Notre Dame, Indiana, The University of Notre Dame seeks a director for its Institute for Educational Initiatives (IEI), which strives to improve the education of all children, especially those living in communities of low opportunity.
Founded in 1996, the IEI is home to more than 30 teaching and clinical faculty members and professors of the practice as well as 80 faculty fellows from across the University. Through teaching, research, and outreach, these distinguished scholars and practitioners pursue interdisciplinary collaborations to better understand and improve PK-12 education both in the United States and internationally, with a particular—though not exclusive—focus on Catholic schools. The institute’s reputation as a force for good has stemmed in large part from its programmatic thrust, including its wide array of distinctive graduate-level licensure programs.
The director of the IEI reports directly to the provost and provides leadership for all aspects of the institute. This includes:

Articulating and implementing the vision of the IEI
Overseeing the leaders of the IEI’s six component units (Alliance for Catholic Education; Center for Research on Educational Opportunity; Center for STEM Education; Center for Literacy Education; Interdisciplinary Minor in Education, Schooling, and Society; Global Center for the Development of the Whole Child)

Recommending IEI fellows for appointment and reappointment and leading meetings of the fellows
Leading efforts to identify and recruit outstanding faculty and professional staff for leadership positions within the institute

Ensuring the quality and continued improvement of the programs within the IEI
Cultivating a spirit of inquiry and scholarship on education-related topics, with a special emphasis on Catholic education and service to low-opportunity students
Engaging diverse stakeholders to enhance awareness of the IEI and to advance its work and reputation
