University Profile

The National Catholic University

Next to Rome, there is simply no place in the world quite like The Catholic University of America. History, geography and providence have put us at the heart of the Church in America and the heart of the capital of the United States – an intersection that will vastly expand your intellectual and spritiual horizons as a part of the new generation of Catholic Minds.

The Catholic University of America is unique as the national university of the Catholic Church and as the only higher education institution founded by the U.S. bishops. Established in 1887 as a papally chartered graduate and research center, the University began offering undergraduate education in 1904.

As a university, it is essentially a free and autonomous center of study and an agency serving the needs of human society. It welcomes the collaboration of all scholars of good will who, through the process of study and reflection, contribute to these aims in an atmosphere of academic competence where freedom is fostered and where the only constraint upon truth is truth itself.

As a member of the American academic community, it accepts the standards and procedures of American institutions and seeks to achieve distinction within the academic world. Faithful to the Christian message as it comes through the Church and faithful to its own national traditions, The Catholic University of America has unique responsibilities to be of service to Christian thought and education in the Catholic community as well as to serve the nation and the world.

University Motto: Deus Lux Mea Est. "God is My Light."
Academic Colors: Gold and white
Athletic Colors: Red and black
Accreditation: The Middle States Commission on Higher Education
Religious Affiliation: Catholic
Note: Catholic University welcomes people of all religious faiths.

Mission
The Catholic University of America was founded in the name of the Catholic Church in the United States by Pope Leo XIII and the bishops of this country as a national institution of learning. Given its origins and the historic role of its ecclesiastical faculties, this University has a responsibility to the Church in the United States that is special to it: It is called to be an intellectual center of highest quality, where the relation between revealed truth and human truth can be examined in depth and with authority. It seeks, moreover, to do this in the light of the American experience. It is for this reason that, from its inception, the University has enjoyed a unique relationship with the Holy See and the entire Catholic community.

Established as a center for graduate study, The Catholic University of America has evolved into a modern American university, committed not only to graduate but also to undergraduate and professional education and to the cultivation of the arts. At every level, the University is dedicated to the advancement of learning and particularly to the development of knowledge in the light of Christian revelation, convinced that faith is consistent with reason and that theology and other religious studies themselves profit from the broader context of critical inquiry, experimentation, and reflection.

The University aims at achieving and maintaining in higher education a leading place among Catholic and other privately endowed, research-oriented institutions of comparable size, purpose, and tradition. It seeks to maintain a position of special excellence in the fields of theology, philosophy, canon law, the humanities and the sciences.

The Catholic University of America gives primacy to scholarship and scientific research and to the training of future scholars through its graduate programs, not only to advance scientific work but also because it recognizes that undergraduate and professional education of high quality also demands the presence of a faculty that combines teaching and professional activity with fundamental scholarship.

The University seeks the advancement of knowledge within a context of liberal studies, a context which reflects both its concern for the whole person and the distinctive wisdom to which it is heir as a Catholic institution. This dimension of learning is reflected particularly in its undergraduate programs where religious studies and philosophy are regarded as integral to curricula that include requirements in the arts and humanities, language and literature, and the natural and social sciences. Through its professional programs, the University seeks to educate men and women who can represent their respective professions with distinction and who are formed by the learning and values inherent in its academic and Catholic traditions.

Position Overview

Catholic education in the United States is at a pivotal juncture where there is great potential to reestablish identity, strategic support, and direction. Having been instrumental in the foundation of formal Catholic K-12 education in the mid-twentieth century, Catholic University and the faculty look to return as the Catholic education pillar.
The School of Arts & Sciences at The Catholic University of America seeks a progressive transformative and visionary leader at the outset of a tremendous opportunity to fill a Chairmanship position in the Department of Education. The Department will be building and branding around academic scholarship and the central Catholic identity.
The position is open for proven leaders in the education sector. The preferred candidate will be a senior tenure-track faculty member at the Associate or Full Professor level, or the equivalent, who can leverage our existing strengths and build upon our mission to be a nationally recognized, authentically Catholic research university with an education department that is strongly committed to supporting Catholic K-12 education through transformative and entrepreneurial leadership.

The Department of Education offers licensure programs in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Secondary Education (English, Math, & Social Studies), Early Childhood Special Education and Special Education. The Department also has an undergraduate program in Education Studies, a master’s program in Learning & Instruction, and a doctoral program in Catholic Education Chairmanship & Policy Studies. The Department is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for the Department of Education and has collaborations across the university such as the School Library Media Program in the Department of Library & Information Studies, the Theatre Education in the Department of Drama and the Music Education Program in the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music.

Department of Education

The Department of Education, a scholarly community of faculty and students, shares in the Catholic and academic mission of The Catholic University of America. The Department recognizes the important role of education in shaping humanity, the world, and the future. The teacher education program functions within this community to prepare teachers for Catholic, private, and public schools to educate students for a changing world.

The overall purpose of teacher education at CUA is to help candidates acquire the skills and reflective qualities essential for the professional practice of teaching. By developing a reflective, problem-solving orientation toward teaching, graduates of this program should be empowered to critically examine their own actions and the context of these actions for the purpose of a more deliberative mode of professional activity (Berlak and Berlak, 1981). The outcome should be self-directed teachers who use professional knowledge to actively, persistently and carefully improve their practice.

One assumption that guides this program is that pre-service teachers can be taught to reflect on their experiences. This can only be accomplished when students are given many opportunities to practice reflection in different contexts and situations. For this reason, all coursework and related field experiences are infused with content and assignments that promote the central goal of increasing reflective thought.

A second assumption is that systematic observation and analysis during a variety of field experiences will promote reflectivity. Candidates are encouraged to use a problem-solving approach to reflect on situations encountered in their own teaching experiences or observations, draw on relevant research and theory for solutions, and integrate knowledge across coursework and field experiences.

Key Responsibilities

The Department Chair will report directly to the Dean and serve as the cental member of the Department of Education. Responsibilities include:
• Providing visionary leadership toward the achievement of the highest possible level of excellence in Catholic education by serving K-12, training teachers and administrative leaders
• Partnership with the Dean to ensure implementation of strategic direction to create clear Department of Education for all Catholic education in the United States
• Oversight and coordination of all departmental matters including course staffing and scheduling specific to the Department
• Program development, review, and accreditation

• Work with program leaders to develop, implement, and maintain effective systems supportive of student success
• Curricular oversight and development of new initiatives in collaboration with faculty and campus leaders
• Recommend to the Dean all faculty hiring, promotion, and professional development needs specific to the Department
• Maintain effective oversight of department budget
• Effectively articulates Department and University mission to internal and external constituencies
• Conduct annual evaluations of departmental personnel
• Work in collaboration with campus and program leaders to facilitate student learning and the assessment of students throughout entirety of program
• Responsibility for aiding in curriculum development aligning with Departmental and University goals

Professional Experience/Qualifications

The ideal Chair candidate should possess:
• An earned Doctorate in Education, or in an equivalent field.
• Minimum of three years of administrative experience
• Ability to enhance the Department’s visibility and larger Catholic education within and outside of the University
• A performance record commensurate for appointment at a senior rank
• Expectation to teach graduate and/or undergraduate courses in an area of concentration of the Department
• Experience in teacher education and accreditation is desired
• Knowledge of current standards in the field for educational leadership
• Ability to work collaboratively with a diverse group of faculty, staff, and students
• Strong communication and interpersonal skills
• Entrpreneurial spirit and consultative approach to identify and address needs in the Catholic education landscape today
• A commitment to leading the University’s Catholic mission forward

Application Process

Candidates should submit by e-mail to EducationChairCUA@kornferry.com a letter of application, a current curriculum vitae, and a one- to two-page personal statement indicating how their leadership, research, teaching, and service will make a distinctive contribution to the University’s mission and to the vision of Catholic education outlined in the Apostolic Constitution on Catholic Universities Ex Corde Ecclesiae, which can be found here: http://w2.vatican.va/content/john-paul-ii/en/apost_constitutions/documents/hf_jp-ii_apc_15081990_ex-corde-ecclesiae.html

Seton Hall

Seton Hall University seeks a president to lead the institution into a new era of accomplishment. As the University brings on board one of the only newly-formed private medical schools in the country while simultaneously enhancing its core strengths at both the undergraduate and graduate level, Seton Hall seeks a leader of people and programs to serve as its 27th chief executive.

Seton Hall’s president will be a Roman Catholic priest with an earned terminal degree in his discipline and a proven record of accomplishment as a leader and administrator. The president will clearly understand and will work to enhance the interconnected values of higher education and the Roman Catholic Church, with a particular understanding and embrace of the Catholic intellectual tradition. A student-centric approach to higher education and a commitment to academic freedom are sine qua non. While leadership experience specifically in higher education is preferred rather than required, candidates with personal experience with undergraduate, graduate, and professional education will be decidedly advantaged, including those with a personal history of teaching, scholarly research, and faculty governance including the rank and tenure process. As would be expected, the president will possess the personal characteristics necessary to be an effective spokesperson and fund raiser for Seton Hall; candidates demonstrating a track record of successful philanthropic fund raising will be at a particular advantage.

The new president will join the University at an opportune time when it has begun to achieve and implement elements of the widely embraced vision for its future. He will inherit exciting new enterprises, like the new medical school that is being created in partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health, and he will have the opportunity to build the awareness and reputation of what is already a nationally recognized institutional brand. To accomplish these ends, Seton Hall’s new president will benefit from a symbiotic working relationship with a highly motivated board and with His Eminence, Joseph William Cardinal Tobin, himself newly appointed as the sixth Archbishop of Newark by Pope Francis.

Seton Hall is already one of the nation’s foremost Catholic universities; its new president will work to enhance its rankings while maintaining its commitment to academic quality and, especially, to its compelling mission and values.

Inquiries, nominations, and applications are invited. For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by November 22, 2017. Candidates should provide a resume or curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the leadership profile available at www.wittkieffer.com, and the names and contact information of five references.

Bohan of Witt/Kieffer, at SetonHallPresident@wittkieffer.com. Questions may also be directed to the consultants through the office of Laurie Adams at 630-575-6152.

Seton Hall University values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity for all persons regardless of age, color, disability, ethnicity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other status protected by law.

The Opportunity   The Founding President of Cristo Rey Richmond High School will have the opportunity to be a game changer, really a life changer, for hundreds of children growing up in poverty in Richmond.  The President will lead the planning and development needed to open the school in September 2019, and then will lead the school to full enrollment of 400+ students in grades 9 – 12.

Cristo Rey Richmond will be one of more than 30 schools that comprise the Cristo Rey Network.  The President will be the Chief Executive Officer, serving as the leader and outward face of the school.  A school principal will be responsible for academic leadership.

The President will hire and lead the school’s management team and will work with a Board of engaged community leaders to gain individual and corporate support for the school.  He or she will be the outward face of the school and have ultimate responsibility for all school operations.

Qualifications   First and foremost, the President must be committed to education reform – particularly for traditionally underserved students – and have passion for the distinct mission, values, academic standards, and Catholic identity of the Cristo Rey Network so that s/he can inspire people to support this unique education model.  

Successful candidates must be Catholic (this is a non-negotiable requirement).  They will possess: •    The leadership experience to build and run an organization. •    Exceptional communication skills. •    The ability to gain support for a new model of education. •    Experience in building community and corporate partnerships. •    A track record of successful fundraising as a professional or a volunteer. •    The ability to build strong relationships with people of all racial and socioeconomic backgrounds. •    An understanding of the President’s role in an academic environment. •    Urban experience with people of limited income. Cristo Rey Schools     The Cristo Rey Network empowers students from underserved lower-income communities to develop their minds and become lifelong contributors to society. By providing students an extraordinary college preparatory education and a unique four-year, integrated corporate work study experience, the Cristo Rey Network seeks to “transform urban America one student at a time.” As a member of the Cristo Rey Network, a school is committed to the following standards: 1.    A Cristo Rey school is explicitly Catholic in mission and enjoys Church approval. 2.    A Cristo Rey school serves only students with limited economic resources and is open to students of various faiths and cultures. 3.    A Cristo Rey school is family-centered and plays an active role in the local community. 4.    A Cristo Rey school prepares all students to enter and graduate from college. 5.    A Cristo Rey school requires participation by all students in the Corporate Work Study program. 6.    A Cristo Rey school integrates the learning present in its work program, classroom, and extracurricular experiences for the fullest benefit of its students. 7.    A Cristo Rey school has effective administrative and board structures, and complies with applicable state and federal laws. 8.    A Cristo Rey school is financially sound. 9.    A Cristo Rey school supports its graduates’ efforts to obtain a college degree and enter post-college life as productive, faith-filled individuals. 10.    A Cristo Rey school is an active participant in the Cristo Rey Network.

The first Cristo Rey school was founded in 1996 by Jesuits in Chicago.  Today the schools have a combined enrollment of over 11,500.  Students come from families whose overall average household size is four persons and average family income is $35,000. Ninety-seven percent (97%) of Cristo Rey students are young people of color. Our schools accept all students, regardless of religious affiliation. This school-year, 46% of the student-body is not Catholic. Cristo Rey Richmond The Cristo Rey Richmond feasibility study has confirmed that there is community support from the Catholic Diocese, corporations, individuals, and potential students and their families.  The school will be built on property adjacent to the Sacred Heart Parish and the Sacred Heart Center.  Until the building is ready, the school will be located in the former Benedictine High School building on Sheppard Street.
