Instructional Assoc Prof/Assoc Dean
The Honors College at the University of Houston seeks candidates for an instructional associate professorship and associate dean for academic programs and faculty affairs. The candidate would join a leadership team of an associate dean for undergraduate research, an assistant dean for student success, and an assistant dean for co-curricular programs. The successful candidate's portfolio would include three major components:

Development, support, and oversight of the honors curriculum, including the Human Situation sequence and five existing minor programs—Medicine & Society, Politics and Ethics, Leadership Studies, Energy and Sustainability, Creative Work—and a certificate program in Global Studies and Research.
Faculty affairs, including the support of the annual review process, the NTT promotion process, and the development of additional teaching and research partnerships and arrangements with disciplinary departments and colleges.
Data collection, analysis, evaluation, and assessment, and the preparation of internal and external reports and publications, including annual College Performance Measures, Strategic Plans, and grant proposals.
The associate dean would also represent the Honors College on major university councils and committees and in the city of Houston for the purposes of community partner development and College advancement. The associate dean would teach at least one course per semester in the honors curriculum and participate fully in the life of the College.

The successful candidate will receive an assignment of 12-month appointment to serve as the Michael A. Little Endowed Professor, which seeks to bring distinction in teaching, service, and research to the Honors College. The endowed professorship provides a salary differential or funds for professional development in addition to the regular instructional faculty salary.

Applicants should submit a CV, cover letter, a statement of teaching philosophy and a statement of relevant administrative experience, and three letters of recommendation. Application review begins immediately, and will continue until a decision on the position has been made.

The University of Houston, with one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation, seeks to recruit and retain a diverse community of scholars.

The University of Houston is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action institution. Minorities, women, veterans and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
