Prescott College seeks a full-time Faculty Chair to lead the Masters of Science in Counseling program. The College invites applications from passionate educators and counseling professionals with expertise, experience, and excitement to assist in CACREP accreditation, oversee and strengthen the current program, and develop new concentrations and specializations.

Prescott College is a private, liberal arts college in central Arizona with a mission that emphasizes student-directed, experiential learning for social justice and environmental sustainability. The limited-residency delivery model blends a core curriculum that combines on-line, in-person, and community-based learning that follows the standards set by CACREP. The program integrates theoretical study, field work, internships and practica, and community engagement to prepare diverse learners for professional licensure.

The successful candidate will be a Full Faculty member, with primarily appointment in the Limited Residency Masters of Science in Counseling program and the proposed Ph.D. in Counselor Education program who will: 1. Teach and advise students; 2. Serve the College and community (e.g., through committee work, programmatic development, academic decision-making, and other curricular activities for the degree program as a whole); and 3. Engage in scholarship and professional development. Applicants must demonstrate the ability to teach effectively in traditional and online learning environments, strong interpersonal communication skills, a sense of humor, a collaborative approach and the ability to mentor and advise students. This is an on-site, campus based Faculty position.

The Faculty Chair will provide leadership in both the current limited-residency program, as well as adding to the College’s offerings in the Masters of Science in Counseling program. A distinctive feature of the graduate programs is the range of alternative modalities offered as concentrations and post-M.A. certificates (e.g., Equine Assisted Mental Health; Expressive Art Therapy; Somatic Psychology; Ecopsychology; Adventure-based Psychotherapy) as well as specializations in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Couple & Family Counseling, Addiction Counseling and School Counseling.

Applicants must demonstrate active research projects, the ability to teach effectively in traditional and online learning environments, the ability to interface with licensing and accrediting bodies, strong interpersonal communication skills, a sense of humor, excellent administrative skills, a collaborative approach, the ability to mentor and advise students, and the entrepreneurial spirit to develop and support program development in areas appropriate to the College mission.
