Context and Position Purpose
The master’s degree in Intercollegiate Athletics Leadership (IAL M.Ed.) in the University of Washington’s College of Education is the cornerstone academic program of the Center for Leadership in Athletics (CLA). The CLA is rooted in the idea that effective leadership is essential within all roles of an athletics enterprise, and can ensure the positive impact athletics can have on student-athletes and broader society. In the spirit of this idea, the CLA serves to enrich the student-athlete experience, through the development of leaders in athletics. The CLA is involved in academic programs, research, coach development, and community partnership work.
The CLA is seeking an innovative and experienced coordinator and educator to serve as the Program Coordinator for the IAL M.Ed. programs. Established in 2006,, this self-sustaining master’s degree program is a collaborative venture involving several faculty members from across the UW, including the College of Education, the Foster School of Business, the Information School, the Evans School of Public Affairs, and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, the support of the UW Department of Professional and Continuing Education (PCE), and guidance from a national advisory board composed of prominent leaders in athletics.
Reporting to the IAL Program Director, the Program Coordinator will be based in the College of Education working directly with students and graduates of the program, College of Education and PCE staff members, the program’s Advisory Board, and IAL faculty members and guest speakers. This position will provide integral support to IAL operations and logistics.
