Director, School of Social Transformation Search for Director, School of Social Transformation Division of Social Sciences, The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Tempe, AZ Arizona State University (ASU), seeks an innovative leader, skilled administrator, and accomplished scholar to serve as the next Director of the School of Social Transformation (SST), a unit of the Division of Social Sciences within The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Existing at the scholarly nexus between academia and activism, SST is a national leader in interdisciplinary scholarship, teaching, and engagement on issues of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. The School of Social Transformation (SST) was founded in 2009, bringing together diverse scholars, students and communities in African and African American studies, Asian Pacific American studies, social and cultural pedagogy, justice and social inquiry, and women and gender studies. As one of many transdisciplinary schools unique to Arizona State University, SST focuses on transformational knowledge, including creative research approaches to themes and questions embedded in broader historical, social and cultural contexts. SST is home to 48 tenure-track and 13 non-tenure eligible faculty members that serve 600+ undergraduate majors and over 100+ doctoral and masters-level students in 19 graduate programs spanning an array of research areas. SST faculty represent humanities, social sciences, and interdisciplinary fields (including creative arts), and they are distinguished nationally and internationally for their scholarship. The faculty seek to think and to train students to think, do research and teach in more complex ways about race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexuality, social and economic justice, immigration status, and labor; to be accountable to the communities with which they engage; and to foreground social transformation on local, national, and global levels. The school's location in Arizona, where demographic changes and social issues reflect the challenges taking place nationally, especially highlights the relevance of the school's mission. The next Director will lead SST at a time of renewed national reckoning around issues of race, gender, inequality, and social justice, exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent Movements for Black Lives, including BLM . The Director of the School is expected to provide visionary leadership, working to attract, develop, and retain exceptional faculty and research programs; promoting excellence in graduate and undergraduate education; developing and building on interdisciplinary research and teaching initiatives; leading efforts in successfully obtaining external funding and maintaining and expanding the School's visibility and outreach initiatives. The Director's vision is expected to resonate with the design aspirations of the "New American University," fostering growth and innovation in the School's research mission, advancing entrepreneurial opportunities, and enhancing relations within and outside the university community. The location offers the resources of a major metropolitan area (5+ million) in a state with spectacular natural scenery and recreational areas, sublime winters, and a culturally rich population.
