Position description

The Berkeley School of Education (BSE) at the University of California, Berkeley is recruiting for a Coordinator of Public Programs position as part of BSE's Leadership Programs. This position will serve as research director for the 21CSLA Regional Academy under the supervision of Leadership Programs Director, Dr. Rebecca Cheung. We are seeking outstanding educational leaders who can help develop and oversee innovative projects aimed at supporting the professional learning of practicing education professionals, from teacher leaders to system leaders. Qualified members of systemically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

The 21st Century California School Leadership Academy (21CSLA) provides high quality, equity-centered professional learning for educational leaders of schools and districts in California that receive Title II funds. Programs are no-cost to participants and include leadership coaching, as well as an emphasis on improving instruction and achievement outcomes (including through distance learning) for English Learners, students with disabilities, low income students, and other historically marginalized students.

Research is an integral part of 21CSLA's work. While providing high-level professional learning for educational leaders, it is essential to understand how the leaders are learning with us so that we can continue to center equity, improve our work, and contribute to a larger knowledge base. By engaging in research, we are able to gain a synthesized overview of how different parts of 21CSLA work together, outline the purposeful processes, and make visible the impacts. At the same time, we also elevate and celebrate the hard work of education leaders in our schools by increasing our understanding of their learning and practice. This work enables us as researchers to better support practitioners. We are inclusive of all research traditions and methods, while research-practice partnership is an integral part of how 21CSLA advances equity. The 21CSLA research team also assists the work of the 21CSLA Regional Academies through conducting research, giving them voice and agency, and elevating their work.

General Duties: Coordinators of Public Programs will design, implement, and oversee the BSE Leadership Programs' offerings for practicing educational leaders. They will participate with the stakeholders including state offices, district offices, international clients and the public to develop outreach and support programs in meeting targeted goals, including outreach to underrepresented communities.

Coordinators will be responsible for supervising professional and operational staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students to implement outreach activities, and will work closely with other Leadership Programs staff in delivering high-quality services to eligible program participants. Their duties may include but are not limited to:

• Designing, leading, planning, implementing, and evaluating University programs of classes, conferences, institutes and seminars, discussion groups, exhibits, lectures and teaching materials;
• Extending the intellectual resources of the University to address education issues at all levels from pre-school through graduate students and their teachers and leaders in both formal and out-of-school settings, through engagement and collaboration;
• Participating with academic and community partners in developing programs focused explicitly on increasing opportunities and also increasing access to opportunities for underrepresented and under-resourced communities.
• Development of fiscally sustainable revenue models and revenue generation practices.
• Grant writing to sustain outreach efforts.
•Collaborate with researchers and internal evaluators to improve 21CSLA and build knowledge about equity leadership and continuous improvement for the broader education community.

These are fiscal-year appointments and subject to the normal processes of academic review .
