Associate/Full Professor in Higher Education and Student Affairs and Director of NSSE
Indiana University’s nationally recognized Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA) program is seeking applications for a tenured associate or full professor (rank depending on qualifications and experience) who can serve as director of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), a flagship project in IU’s Center for Postsecondary Research (CPR). An established scholar-leader is sought to bring vibrancy, critical perspectives, productivity, and innovation to both HESA and NSSE.

Candidates should have a well-established record of equity-minded research, teaching, and service that qualifies for appointment as a tenured associate or full professor in the IU Bloomington School of Education, with particular emphasis on research in higher education and student affairs and project leadership. More specifically, we seek a scholar who focuses their research, teaching and service on issues related to:
  • Evidence-informed assessment for improving student learning and engagement
  • Effective educational practices that equitably serve diverse students
  • Systemic inequities that influence the design and implementation of educational practices to support success of marginalized populations
In addition, the ideal candidate will have significant experience with:
  • Working with large, national datasets
  • Teaching graduate courses in higher education and student affairs
  • Mentoring and contributing to the success of graduate students, including chairing doctoral dissertation committees
  • Contributing to department and school governance and administrative needs
The director of NSSE is a three-year appointment with an evaluation for continued appointment. The successful candidate will lead and collaborate with a team of over 20 faculty colleagues, research scientists, and project associates, overseeing all aspects of the NSSE project (survey content, IRB protocols and compliance, promotional materials and recruitment campaigns, survey administration, user support, data preparation, and reporting of results).

Specifically, we seek a scholar who can:
  • Establish an equitable and inclusive work environment that promotes research associates, research scientists, graduate assistants, and professional staff innovation, mentorship, and development
  • Sustain and work effectively with the NSSE National Advisory Board to assure the project’s continued relevance, value, and sustainability
  • Leverage technology to promote survey participation, especially among minoritized groups, and optimize data collection and reporting
  • Be familiar with sound financial stewardship and planning for an enterprise that generates between $2 million and $4 million annually and employs full-time and part-time staff.
  • Represent NSSE at professional meetings and to the news media, advocating for the NSSE family of projects and their role in evidence-informed improvement
  • Collaborate with NSSE and CPR leadership in planning and policy matters
