DEAN OF THE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND HUMAN SERVICES
Carroll University invites nominations and applications for the Founding Dean of its School of Education and Human Services. Carroll will welcome its new Dean as it embarks on the creation of the School while at the same time continuing its outstanding academic programs that meet current and emerging educational needs and developing educators and leaders who are prepared to create and sustain success in an ever-shifting learning environment. Elevated from a department to a School, the primary goals of the Education Program at Carroll University are to carry on
the rich legacy and tradition of outstanding undergraduate and graduate education while envisioning new horizons such as new degree programs, credentials and certificates. Building on a new commitment to high-quality programs, the School’s faculty combine leading-edge knowledge with a passion to excel at teaching, using both traditional and state-ofthe-art delivery of education curricula. The overriding vision is to provide an engaging and experiential education that provides highly sought-after graduates and successful alumni.
Carroll is Wisconsin’s first, four-year institution of higher education and today is identified as a comprehensive, liberal arts-centered, independent university organized around three major components: the College of Arts & Sciences, the School of Business, and the College of Health Sciences. The current Department of Education offers undergraduate majors in elementary education, secondary education and educational studies. Additionally, the department offers graduate degrees in the Master of Arts in Teaching, Master of Education and Master of Science in Educational Leadership. A decade of dramatic enrollment growth, impressive fundraising, and strong fiscal management place Carroll in a very strong and enviable position on today’s higher education landscape.
