The University of Rhode Island (URI) is the state flagship (and land, urban, and sea grant) institution. It is home to a thriving graduate preparation program in student affairs—the URI College Student Personnel Program which is currently located in the Feinstein College of Education and Professional Studies. The mission of the College Student Personnel program is to prepare reflective practitioners for professional careers in student affairs. The CSP program vision is to engage students, faculty, internship supervisors, alumni and campus partners in an extended community of co-learning relationships that inspire optimal student development, promote inclusive leadership, and create and sustain best practices in student affairs. This non-tenure track, limited term position will focus on dynamic teaching, advising/mentoring, and some administration for the on-campus master’s program. We are seeking a faculty member to join a collaborative team of full and part-time faculty in the School of Education committed to high quality and socially-just praxis. This position can be renewed for a maximum of five years.
This non-tenure track faculty of practice will be responsible for teaching in-person courses primarily in the College Student Personnel Master’s Program. Applicants will be expected to be outstanding teachers using engaging, innovative, research-based, and anti-racist/socially just pedagogy. This faculty member will be responsible for teaching not only student affairs content courses, but also educating students through theory-to-practice curricular requirements (e.g., capstone projects, portfolios, career preparation, internships).
This faculty of practice will serve as an advisor/major professor to CSP students and fulfil all of the duties (e.g., program of study, nomination for graduation, etc.) associated with that role. We are seeking applicants who are passionate about supporting graduate students inside and outside the classroom. Ideal candidates will use a holistic model to not only advise on curricular matters, but also mentor graduate students into the profession of student affairs.
With direction from, and collaboration with CSP faculty, this new hire will work to ensure the CSP program meets CAS Standards and continues to thrive as a competitive and well-respected graduate preparation program. The faculty of practice will assist with all aspects of the CSP program including recruitment, admission, curricular/clinical oversight, and assessment reporting. In collaboration with the CSP community (faculty, alumni, students), the faculty of practice will help implement CSP curricular and co-curricular initiatives (e.g., orientation, commencement, mock interviews, coaching program) and support CSP Alumni Chapter activities.
Strengths of the CSP program include an extensive professional network and strong sense of community among students, faculty, alumni, and student affairs partners. The faculty of practice will help foster campus and community partnerships (e.g., student affairs, internship supervisors, full and part-time faculty, alumni) to support program, student, and alumni success. The faculty of practice will represent the CSP program on college, university, and external committees.
