Internal search for CELT director is under way

An internal search for the director of the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) and co-director of ISU's learning communities program has begun, with the goal of naming the successful candidate by Dec. 16.

The search committee, chaired by assistant dean of the Graduate College and physics professor Craig Ogilvie, also includes:

  • Holly Bender, professor of veterinary pathology
  • Carol Faber, associate professor of graphic design
  • Jen Leptien, CELT program coordinator
  • Jason Pontius, coordinator of continuous academic program improvement
  • Allan Schmidt, CELT assistant director for learning technologies

A position announcement is available on the ISU jobs website, and applications are due Nov. 11. Only tenured full professors currently at Iowa State will be considered for the position. The search committee seeks nominations of, as well as applications from, full professors with a passion for enhancing teaching, student learning and student success.

Ogilvie asked that nominations be submitted by Nov. 4 to Penni Bryant, 4-7184, so that nominees could be encouraged to complete the application process in time to receive full consideration by the committee. Questions about the position may be directed to Ogilvie.
