Position Announcement: Director of Continuing and Extended Education

October 20, 2012

SDSU, the state’s land grant research institution, is seeking a new Director of Continuing and Extended Education to exercise comprehensive strategic leadership as it deepens and expands its historic commitment to non-traditional education.   CCE at SDSU comprises both fully online and hybrid programs, as well as face to face instruction at the institution’s main campus in Brookings, SD and at off-campus locations in Sioux Falls, Rapid City, and Pierre, the state capital. The University has identified the expansion and broadening of CEE as one of its principal priorities for the future.

South Dakota State has engaged our firm, Strategic Consulting: The Wyly/Kellogg International Group, to assist in this search. We are a national higher education consulting organization specializing in institutional strategy, international education, and searches for leadership positions.

The Director of CEE reports directly to Kathleen Fairfax, the institution’s Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs for International Affairs and Outreach, who is a nationally-recognized leader in international education. One of the exciting opportunities

awaiting the new Director will be working with Kathleen to create imaginative new synergies between international and online learning.

Attached is a copy of the position announcement that has appeared in the October 5 Chronicle online education issue, as well as another document reviewing in greater detail both the University’s aspirations regarding continued and extended education and the responsibilities of the position. We hope you will review these materials and contact us in confidence should you have a personal interest in this appointment or if you would care to suggest someone else as a candidate.
