The Upper School dean of faculty is an administrator responsible for providing leadership and support to the Upper School faculty. Reporting to the Upper School principal, the dean of faculty ensures that all decisions consider the impact on teaching and learning, as well as on faculty members in general. To that end, the dean is a strong listener who dialogues with the faculty as a whole, departments, and individual faculty members as needed. In practical terms, the dean leads the recruitment, hiring, retention, evaluation, and assignment of workload (class and other assignments). The dean also identifies opportunities for the growth and development of faculty, both individually and within departments, and participates in determining professional development fund allocations in collaboration with the teaching & learning team. To accomplish these multi-dimensional goals, the dean oversees and closely collaborates with the division’s department heads (chairs) to ensure that departmental and faculty-related information and needs are well understood and addressed.

The successful candidate will be an experienced teacher respected by their peers, highly collaborative, adept at navigating complex circumstances and conversations, and able to understand how and when to facilitate change and consensus. Ideally, the candidate will also have demonstrable experience in applying, updating and creating faculty-related policies, implementing and/or building performance evaluation systems, and navigating workload-related complexities at private schools.

The school seeks strong internal candidates for this role who could also contribute to the broader student experience, from co-curricular to athletic to residential life programming.
