University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Applications are now being accepted at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for an assistant/associate professor of practice in Pre-School through 12th grade (P-12) school administration in the Department of Educational Administration (EDAD). The Department is committed to preparing scholars and leaders to serve both P-12 schools and higher education organizations in the challenges in teaching and learning. The position will be focused on serving students in the P-12 Masters in Education, Ed.D programs, with a particular emphasis on the superintendency.

The person selected for this position will be expected to teach online and face-to-face classes, advise masters and doctoral students, and actively engage with P-12 schools, governing bodies, Educational Service Units (ESUs), and other stakeholders. We desire an effective leader with the skill to facilitate opportunity, equity, access and success across the P-20 educational spectrum. The selected candidate will bring a superintendent-level practitioner’s perspective and collaborate with a dynamic and award-winning faculty composed of expert researchers and practitioners, and highly motivated students from across Nebraska and across the globe.

The Department of Educational Administration has been a part of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for more than 100 years. Initially, our focus was solely on the preparation of administrators for elementary and secondary schools. Our commitment to the preparation of P-12 administrators continues, and our programs have steadily expanded to include higher education. The early 1990’s saw the addition of the doctoral specialization in Educational Leadership and Higher Education. In 2000 the Department added the master’s degree specialization in Student Affairs Administration and a graduate certificate in community college leadership in 2006.

The Department is actively engaged with the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), the Carnegie Project on the Educational Doctorate (CPED), the Nebraska Council of School Administrators, and other stakeholder groups and coalitions locally, statewide, and beyond.
