The Caspersen School of Graduate Studies, founded in 1955, has an extraordinary configuration of six programs that focus on “the humanities at work.” These programs put disciplinary and interdisciplinary content into academic, social, and professional contexts. In addition, new and enhanced programs in teacher education and in finance represent the start of the expansion in graduate programs that will be happening in the years ahead.

The Associate Provost will collaborate with directors of each unit to support their distinctive areas of excellence and to build an integrated model that helps students connect their experiential education, post-college planning, and career and professional development experiences with their academic learning into a cohesive educational experience that prepares them for future success. 

Increasing undergraduate and graduate student participation and engagement in, as well as expanding opportunities for, meaningful experiential learning that strengthens their career development are important priorities of the Associate Provost. Additional responsibilities include: engaging faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and intern and employer partners to support students’ post-graduation success; leveraging state-of-the art practices for student career counseling and preparation to enhance learning and development of in-demand competencies; partnering with direct reports, academic colleagues, and advancement officers to convey opportunities and raise external funds to expand CPDEE’s initiatives; enhancing current assessment efforts and analyzing data to determine programmatic strategic direction; designing high visibility programs that showcase and promote the value of experiential learning; planning facility requirements that will optimize collaboration, synergy, and efficiency of shared mission and resources, space, and access for students and campus partners to engage with the CPDEE. The Associate Provost will serve as a key member of the Provost’s senior leadership team and will work cooperatively with academic program directors, faculty, student affairs, and other campus colleagues in supporting institutional strategic priorities and advancing the mission of the Center for Professional Development and Experiential Education.
