Posting: FAC00033PO22

Dean of the College of Education, Human Performance, and Health
University of South Carolina Upstate
Spartanburg, South Carolina

The University of South Carolina Upstate seeks an enthusiastic, collaborative, and creative leader to serve as the next Dean of the College of Education, Human Performance, and Health (CoEHPH). This is an outstanding opportunity for a caring and community-minded academic administrator to lead distinctive programs that develop educators and professionals who understand the intersections of education, wellness, and community health. The new Dean is expected to begin by July 1, 2022.

The Dean will oversee two academic departments, serve on the Cabinet of USC Upstate Chancellor Dr. Bennie Harris, and engage with regional school districts, non-profit organizations, centers, and health systems. Embracing their integral role within a renowned public, regional university, the dedicated faculty and staff of CoEHPH provide rigorous, career-relevant, and accessible education that enhances the quality of life in the Upstate region. With more than 1,000 students, CoEHPH serves the region and state workforce with highly prepared graduates in education, health, and wellness. The College also partners with area healthcare systems with undergraduate programs in child and family development, community health, and exercise and sport science. Accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), CoEHPH’s teacher education programs target mitigating the impact of the teacher shortage for regional partners.

In 2018, the former School of Education changed its name to the School of Education, Human Performance, and Health and restructured to reflect more fully the diversity of its degree and educational programs. In March 2022, the University of South Carolina Board of Trustees approved changing the name to the College of Education, Human Performance, and Health, effective fall 2022. Therefore, the next Dean is expected to build on the shared vision that is now guiding the faculty and staff, who see their work as transformative for students and the region.

The University and The Upstate Region South Carolina
The University. USC Upstate, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is the largest comprehensive university in the USC System and the only public comprehensive university in the Upstate region. Independently accredited, USC Upstate currently offers more than 50 undergraduate and graduate academic programs. These programs include majors, minors, certificates, and pre-professional programs. As explained in this fact sheet from 2020-21, USC Upstate is known for its innovation, diversity, and student-centered practices and environment. Faculty governance is also a valued part of the culture at USC Upstate. As the faculty governance website explains, “Faculty Governance serves as a voice for the faculty in the decision-making processes that promote the achievement of these goals.”

The Upstate Region of South Carolina. According to the U.S. Census data for 2020, there has been significant growth in the combined population of Spartanburg County, Greenville County, and city of Spartanburg. The overall population of the ten-county Upstate region is more than 1.5 million, with further growth projected in the next decade, given the array of international and regional employers: Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, Prisma Health, Spartanburg and Greenville County Schools, BMW, Amazon, Michelin, Best Buy, and Milliken.
The mild climate, with four distinct seasons, allows for outdoor activities year-round. The area has lakes, rivers, parks, preserves, arboretums, and trails. Situated at the junction of I-85 and I-26, the city provides easy access to both the Blue Ridge mountains and Atlantic beaches. The city is 75 miles from Charlotte, 93 miles from Columbia, and approximately 175 miles from Atlanta.

College of Education, Humans Performance, and Health
One of five academic divisions at USC Upstate, the College of Education, Human Performance, and Health is organized in two large departments: the Department of Education and the Department of Human Performance and Health. Each department is headed by a Chair, and each department has both undergraduate and graduate programs. Faculty members have exceptional skills in the classroom, as well as exemplary public scholarship and community research. Currently there are 17 distinct degree programs offered within CoEHPH.

Undergraduate programs. These undergraduate programs in CoEHPH lead to initial certification: Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Middle Level Education, Physical Education, Secondary Education (with six distinct concentration areas), and Special Education—Learning Disabilities. The College maintains accreditation through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

The College also offers undergraduate programs in Exercise and Sport Science, Child Development and Family Studies, and Community Health. Exercise and Sport Science graduates are prepared for a variety of careers, including fitness specialist, personal trainer, and strength and conditioning specialist. Graduates of this program are also well prepared for advanced study in athletic training, sport nutrition, exercise physiology, cardiac rehabilitation, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician assistant. The Child Development and Family Studies program prepares students for professional work with young children between the ages of birth to six years. Additionally, students are prepared to work with families from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Community Health program graduates—instead of focusing on the clinical aspects of care—work with neighborhoods, regions, and groups and support a healthy life to better understand the foundational blocks of health of individuals and of a given community.

Graduate programs. At the graduate level, CoEHPH currently offers three distinctive programs that prepare students to serve the region’s schools even more effectively, and a fourth graduate program has been approved for Fall 2022. Designed for working professionals, the M.Ed. in Applied Learning and Instruction is an opportunity for educators to pursue an advanced degree online while also adding endorsements to their teaching certificate. Offered in partnership with local school districts, this program emphasizes theory and evolving practices to meet the needs of students in diverse classrooms. The M.Ed. in Visual Impairment is the only program in South Carolina for certified teachers who seek additional credentials in teaching students with visual impairments. The M.A.T. in Special Education: Visual Impairment is a graduate program for those seeking initial licensure in visual impairment. The new M.S. in Exercise Science program will be the first in the state to offer a graduate program in the realms of exercise and neurocognitive physiology. The program will be supported by a recently developed exercise science laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment.
All academic programs in CoEHPH focus on developing professional skills that translate to improving the lives of others. The faculty and staff, deeply committed to student success and academic excellence, use an interdisciplinary approach to craft professionals who are able make a difference in their local communities. A sense of unity and esprit de corps among the faculty and staff in CoEHPH has led to creative new program development and eagerness to begin strategic planning for further growth.

Points of Pride in CoEHPH
The new M.S. in Exercise Science program was recently approved at the state level, with the first cohort of students to begin in Fall 2022.
• CoEHPH sustains partnerships with over 10 school districts and over 40 therapy-, recreational-, community-, and family-based centers for placements and internships.
• The Community Health program integrates advocacy with community partnerships.
• The Child Development and Family Studies program uses state-of-the-art technology to train childcare and teaching professionals through CoEHPH’s partnership with the Franklin School—an early childhood education center in the city of Spartanburg’s Northside neighborhood.
• Students benefit from the state-of-the-art Exercise Science laboratory.
• Faculty in CoEHPH have been awarded more than $2.7 million in external grants and funding, including those from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, and U.S. Department of Education.
• 100% of CoEHPH students are engaged in experiential education through internships, service learning, and/or student teaching.
• Student engagement and learning is inspired through diverse student groups like Call Me MiSTER, Exercise Science Student Organization, Real Men Are Teachers, and a broad range of initiatives, partnerships, and annual events such as the Diversity Summit.

Leadership Agenda
The new Dean has the opportunity to build on the momentum in CoEHPH and at USC Upstate in addressing these priorities:
• Responding to the needs of the growing Upstate region, collaborate with faculty, staff, and members of local schools, non-profit organizations, centers, and businesses to develop innovative degree and certificate programs that respond to the employment and economic needs of the growing Upstate region;
• Inviting the creativity and energy of CoEHPH faculty and staff to address recruitment and retention, lead strategic planning to increase enrollment;
