Dean, School of Education: The University of San Francisco Invites Applications for the Position of Dean of the School of Education to Begin in MAY 2013-2014


The University of San Francisco is recognized nationally and internationally as a premier Jesuit, Catholic, urban University with a global perspective that educates leaders who will fashion a more humane and just world. The University offers undergraduate, graduate, and professional students the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as persons and professionals, and the values and sensitivity necessary to be men and women for others.

Established as San Francisco's first institution of higher education in 1855, the University of San Francisco presently serves over 10,000 students in Arts and Sciences, Education, Law, Management, Nursing and Health Professions. The University is recognized as one of the most ethnically diverse institutions in the country and in 2009 it was ranked as one of the top 100 universities considered to be "Saviors of our Cities." In addition, the Corporation for National and Community Service has placed the University of San Francisco in the President's Honor Roll for 6 years in a row and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has classified the University of San Francisco as a community-engaged institution.

The School of Education programs began in 1947 and currently offers graduate programs (Masters and EdD) on-campus (San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Rosa, San Jose, Pleasanton) as well as online.
