The Johns Hopkins University for Center Talented Youth (CTY) is currently seeking academic deans for its summer residential and day programs in the United States.
What is CTY?
CTY, a world leader in gifted education, offers summer academic programs at college, universities, and independent schools in the United States and Hong Kong. CTY provides highly qualified students with an intense immersion in a particular subject. In addition to rigorous academics, students enjoy a rich experience outside the classroom through recreational activities.
Why Work for CTY?
- Our students are highly motivated, and our programs focus on learning rather than grades.
- Our administrative, instructional, and residential staffs consist of dedicated educators and administrators from across the country and around the world.
- Academic Deans gain valuable administrative experience and professional development in a supportive, collegial environment.
- Compensation is competitive.
The Academic Dean’s Role
The academic dean assumes primary responsibility for supervising the academic staff and coordinating the academic program. A CTY academic dean performs the duties equivalent to a dean of faculty as he or she supports and guides 20-70 instructional staff who come from a variety of educational backgrounds and have diverse teaching skills. Through classroom observations and frequent conferences with staff, the academic dean provides feedback and mentoring on teaching strategies and classroom management. The dean also addresses student performance issues and oversees the editing of student evaluations. Finally, he or she furnishes logistical support for field trips, class projects, and supplies, and at some sites supervises an academic dean's assistant.
At residential sites, the academic dean's work hours are primarily during class times and in the late afternoons and evenings of class days, including the evening study periods. At day sites, the academic dean works from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with additional time in the evenings or on weekends to complete work if necessary. The academic dean is also required to oversee Before- and After-Care one or two days per week.
