Humber College is seeking an associate dean for journalists and writers.

“As the ideal candidate, you are passionate about supporting and developing a diverse population of students who are pursuing a career in arts and media,” a job opening on Glassdoor says.

There are currently three associate deans for the School of Media Studies and Information Technology — according to the college directory. The Avro Post has reached out to confirm whether this would be the department for the new position.

“You have a history of working in collaborative, multi-disciplinary environments, and you have effective and creative ways to further develop multi-disciplinary approaches to teaching and learning,” the posting goes on.

“You are a champion for the strategic use of technology to enhance learning, improve the flexible delivery of college courses, and expand access to post-secondary education. You are a skilled relationship builder who finds innovative ways to connect seemingly-disconnected disciplines, ideas, and individuals in order to advance and promote the Faculty’s and the College’s success.”

“You manage complex student issues and professors’ needs with patience, understanding, respect, unquestionable ethics, and courage. You know how to advance a culture of coordinated efforts and how to skillfully encourage teamwork and multi-disciplinary work.”

“The ideal Associate Dean comes to Humber with diverse experience and innovative ideas; the new Associate Dean will be someone who is nimble and curious with an eye to the needs of students, industry partners, and professors, someone who challenges conventions in arts, media, and in academia and boldly looks for new ways to add value to the student learning experience at the College.

The new hire will report to the Senior Dean of Faculty of Media and Creative Arts. The only senior dean in the directory was Vera Beletzan of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
