CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE IN UNDERGRADUATE TEACHING. Director.

The Provost's Office invites nominations and applications for the position of director of the Center for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. Candidates must be tenured faculty members at Virginia Tech. The director will serve half-time in the center, and continue to serve as a half-time faculty member in his or her home department. The director works collaboratively with the coordinator of the Writing Program in managing the resources and activities of the programs, and reports to the associate provost for undergraduate programs. The appointment is for a two-year period. The director of the CEUT must be recognized across campus as an outstanding teacher and must be able to conceptualize and articulate the conditions necessary for effective teaching and learning to occur at the undergraduate level in the context of this university. The director will serve as an advocate for teaching throughout the university and must, therefore, have the ability to draw faculty members from diverse backgrounds into a common enterprise. The nature of the center will require that the director be a consensus builder who is skilled at framing issues and moving groups toward the achievement of abstract and sometimes challenging goals. The CEUT provides a university-level base for faculty development programs which enhance the academic quality of the undergraduate programs. The primary duties of the director will include chairing a steering committee for the CEUT, administering and coordinating CEUT activities, and working with the associate provost for undergraduate programs to coordinate university-wide initiatives related to teaching. Activities of the center's director include organizing workshops and discussions on teaching, organizing an annual teaching orientation for new faculty members, preparing a newsletter, coordinating an e-mail listserve on teaching issues, and administering the teaching grants programs. Review of letters of application with an accompanying vitae will begin May 15, 1995. Applications should include names of three references. The position will be available August 1, 1995. Nominations and applications should be sent to Dr. Susan Brooker-Gross, Associate Provost for Undergraduate Programs, 201 Burruss Hall, Campus 0132. Phone: 231-6122. Fax: 231-7211.
