About

The WW Academy is reinventing American teacher preparation for the 21st century.

POSITIONS AVAILABLE:

 

President

The President will serve as chief executive and leader of this ground-breaking initiative, with responsibilities traditionally assigned to college Presidents as well as those associated with leading a start-up and a think tank. S/he will join as the WW Academy evolves from planning to a free-standing graduate school, with faculty and staff, and a $2M+ operating budget. A pilot class of Design Fellows has launched and the WW Academy’s independent Board of Directors has been formed. MIT is collaborating with faculty to co-design elements of the program. The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation will continue to support the back office until the WW Academy moves functions in-house.

The President will translate the WW Academy’s vision into aligned strategic and operational business plans, clear objectives, and the financial and team resources required to deliver on this important mission. S/he will also:

  • actively champion the WW Academy’s approach, model and vision with multiple audiences;
  • attract significant financial resources;
  • engage critical partners (graduate schools of education, practitioners, school districts, accreditation bodies, etc.);
  • advocate for changes in national education policy and practice;
  • and develop the WW Academy’s long-term sustainability.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a strategic and inspiring current or future college president to lead a startup into the preeminent graduate school revolutionizing the field of teacher and leader preparation in the United States.
