For reasons I plan to explain in subsequent posting – if I ever get my act together! – the accreditation of colleges and universities is likely to be at the center of highly contentious changes in higher education. So a recent job announcement from the Council of Higher Education Accreditors may be of interest – but not the faint hearted!
Here is an excerpt from the job announcewment:
Qualifications: Candidates must possess significant experience in higher education or higher education-related settings; a working knowledge of accreditation or other quality assurance systems; skills in creating and managing projects and processes; demonstrated excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills, including experience in collecting, analyzing and presenting key data; demonstrated capacity to engage and work effectively with a diverse array of institutions, organizations and individuals and the ability to cooperate with other staff in a small organization to assure successful implementation of strategic priorities and adherence to organizational mission.
Applications: Review of applicant materials begins immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Information about CHEA and the CHEA Recognition Policy and Procedures is available on the CHEA website www.chea.org
