The Department of Counselor Education (EDCO) at San José State University invites well-qualified applicants to submit materials for consideration as we anticipate welcoming two new tenure-track faculty colleagues beginning in the 2022-23 Academic Year at the rank of Assistant Professor.
We seek candidates with professional experience in educational and/or mental health counseling within K-12 and/or postsecondary educational settings, a record of successful teaching experience at the college level, a demonstrated ability to effectively partner with schools and/or colleges, an established record of scholarship, and a demonstrated ability of successfully mentoring students in research and professional development. Applicants should also be skilled and demonstrably committed to supporting the development, well-being, and success of students whose racial, ethnic, gender, and/or sexual identities remain underserved within K-12 and postsecondary education sectors.
We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues to join in preparing our nearly 200 talented and diverse graduate students for educational counseling and related careers in K-12, postsecondary, and community-based contexts. We and our graduates share commitments to advocacy, social justice, and life-long learning. Our students complete a Master of Arts degree in Counseling and Guidance with the option to add courses and fieldwork leading to the Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) School Counseling Credential (required to work as K-12 School Counselors in California), and a Child Welfare & Attendance Authorization. Students also have the option to complete preparatory courses and fieldwork associated with Associate & Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (APCC/LPCC) requirements (see: http://www.sjsu.edu/counselored/ ). Our department faculty are centered in strong ethical practice, open and inclusive communication, creativity, and academic freedom.
EDCO is one of seven departments in the Connie L. Lurie College of Education, whose faculty, students, staff, alumni, and partners are dedicated to creating meaningful, equitable, and inclusive learning experiences for our diverse community. We take an emancipatory stance in our teaching, research, and service activities. In collaboration with our partners across campus and in the community, we strive to make an impact by transforming our schools and shaping our society to become just and democratic. Our Lurie College family includes approximately 55 tenured / tenure-track faculty, 100 lecturers, 20 staff, and 1,800 students across seven different departments. We are looking for colleagues who are dedicated to critically engaging in their teaching and research, who see strength in the diversity of our student community, and who are committed to challenging themselves and the college as we seek to grow and strengthen our work.
SJSU enrolls more than 36,000 students, many of whom are historically underserved, and around 45% are first-generation and 38% are Pell-recipients. SJSU is a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander (AANAPISI) Serving Institution. The university's commitment to social justice extends from its vibrant, inclusive campus to an international network of over 275,000 alumni. As such, San José State is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty so our disciplines, students, and the community can benefit from multiple ethnic and gender perspectives.
Successful candidates will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to equity and inclusion through their research, teaching, and/or service. We ask that all applicants include a Diversity Statement with their application package. A guide to writing this statement can be found at SJSU Diversity Statement Guidelines, along with information about how these statements will be evaluated.
