Director, Undergraduate Programs, Katz School – Yeshiva University

Yeshiva University’s Katz School is hiring a Program Director to oversee Undergraduate Programs. This is an ideal opportunity for a creative and entrepreneurial leader to shape a cluster of interdisciplinary academic programs – and to contribute to the broader field of undergraduate education by developing innovative pedagogies and measuring and publishing results. I’m writing because I thought you may know someone who would be interested in this role.

Our undergraduate programs are grounded in best practices in developmental, experiential, and student-centered education; our associates degree in particular has the potential to define national models for 2-year college programs. The program director will spearhead efforts including curriculum development, faculty recruitment, advisement, and other strategic administrative work. In addition, the program director will have the opportunity to collaborate with academic leaders from across YU’s undergraduate and graduate schools (e.g., Yeshiva College, Stern College, Sy Syms School of Business, Wurzweiler School of Social Work, and Cardozo School of Law). Yeshiva University is a nationally-ranked, Top 100 university by USNews.

This is an exciting time to join the Katz School, which offers multiple graduate and undergraduate degrees, summer programs, and programs for high school juniors and seniors. Located in midtown Manhattan, the Katz School is home to hundreds of students from around the world and to a diverse faculty body.
