Job Description

Trinity Western University (TWU) invites applications for the full time position of Graduate Program Director of the Master of Arts in Leadership Program. Reporting to the Associate Provost, the MA Leadership program director will provide leadership and management for three Master’s degree programs at Trinity Western University: (a) the MA in Leadership with specializations in Business, Christian Ministry, Customization, Health and Non Profit Leadership; (b) the MA in Educational Leadership; and (c) the MA in Leadership (Business Stream) in Mandarin.


The MA leadership program is based on a transformational servant leadership paradigm. This approach is unique to our work.  The Director practices and instructs leadership, using this lens.  Transformational Servant Leaders develop collaborative relationships with key internal and external stakeholders to develop a shared vision, which is compatible with the policy and governance framework of TWU.  In turn, those relationships form the basis of our program marketing strategy and its implementation in current and emerging markets. The successful candidate will have experience in all elements (marketing, budgeting, recruiting, strategic planning) of leading and managing dynamic, developing programs, with a commitment to continually increasing program value for those we serve.


The graduate program director will also show evidence of quality teaching and research commensurate with a tenured faculty appointment at TWU and will be required to regularly teach within the program as part of the graduate director teaching load (four courses per year).


Interested candidates are required to complete the on-line application at Applications will be accepted until a suitable candidate is found, subject to budget approval. In addition to your curriculum vitae, your online application should also include documentation outlining: area(s) of interest, major contributions to teaching, view of transformational servant leadership and how you practice servant leadership currently, research and practice as well as verification of doctoral (or terminal) degree.
