As Herzing’s largest campus, our Atlanta Campus offers students from all over the world Associate’s, Bachelor’s, and Master’s and certificate programs. You can learn more about the programs this position will oversee on Herzing’s website, but include programs in Nursing, Business, Heathcare, Public Safety, Legal Studies, and Technology.

This means that this position works collaboratively with Campus Leadership and the Office of the Provost to ensure student support and satisfaction through the analysis of student retention, student needs, programmatic standards, student learning outcomes, and faculty support and development. The Academic Dean may delegate duties to Department Chairs or Program Chairs, but ultimately is responsible for the quality and execution of all academic initiatives. Finally, this position is responsible for the continuous improvement of academic programs at the Atlanta campus, through collaboration with System Division Chairs and Office of the Provost personnel.

Most importantly, you will ensure that each campus Program Chair reporting to you actively participates as a member of the Division Curriculum Committee and holds those individuals accountable for informing local faculty of planned curriculum development and revision and for securing their feedback and input. The Academic Dean will also support local initiatives such as the Program Advisory Boards and ensures system expectations for the documentation of meetings and initiatives are upheld. Supervisory Responsibilities At the Atlanta Campus, there are six Chairs who supervise dozens of full and part-time faculty, the local Registrars, and the Career and Student Services team reporting into the position. For this reason you will need to be competent in leading teams and delegating, and still be ready to roll up your sleeves and jump in the trenches.

  1. Strategic alignment
  2. Promotes a positive learning environment and culture
  3. Administrative responsibilities are done in a timely and accurate way
  4. Contributes to the improvement of curriculum and instruction for all faculty
  5. Creating a culture of continuous improvement on the campus
  6. Positive and effective communication
WHAT we are looking for… To be qualified for this position, you must have at least:
  • Master’s degree from a regionally accredited institution
  • One year of educational management experience supervising others
The list above outlines the minimum requirements for this position, but our ideal candidate will likely have at least a few of these of the following as well.
  • Doctorate degree from a regionally accredited institution
  • Experience in serving adult-learners
  • Experience in student services, career services, and/or teaching in a college or university environment
  • Experience managing, overseeing, or working with a Nursing Educator program
  • Experience with student retention programs or initiatives
  • Experience working with accreditation agencies (e.g. IACBE, CCE, etc.)
WHO we are looking for… As someone who will be responsible for shaping the academic culture at the campus, it is important that we find the right fit for this role. Just as important as your experience and background, we are looking for someone who has the following personal characteristics.
  • Has leadership, managerial, and supervisory skill, and understands the difference and when it is appropriate to use each
  • Excellent organizational skills
  • Be an active listener, but also understand when it is appropriate to be assertive
  • Ability to explain complex concepts in simple, easy to interpret ways
  • Must have the ability to apply strategy to regular tasks and routines
  • Ability to effectively coach and mentor staff and students
  • Have an understanding of how to use data to drive decisions
  • Ability to build relationships with community-based employers to help align student outcomes with employers’ needs
  • Has the self-awareness to understand personal weaknesses and how to compensate for them in a healthy way
  • Model Herzing's P.R.I.C.E. of Success Model at all times
