University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK

Open Date
Jan 27, 2023


This is a 12-month position, based on the Norman campus, and jointly appointed between the Dodge Family College of Arts & Sciences (DFCAS, Norman) and the Hudson College of Public Health (HCPH), Health Sciences Center campus (HSC, in Oklahoma City), with administrative responsibilities, a 2-course per year teaching load, and the expectation of a robust sponsored research agenda

The Director will oversee the three established undergraduate major programs through coordinating recruitment and retention efforts, building the network of providers for practicum placements, internships, and capstone research opportunities, coordinating the curriculum, overseeing development of online course offerings, and facilitating career placement and pathways to the OU MPH program.
