Located at various campuses across the Commonwealth of Virginia, Virginia Tech is the state’s largest residential university with more than 34,000 students. The more than 40 faculty colleagues in the School of Education currently offer fourteen different graduate degrees to more than 600 students. Building on the university motto Ut Prosim (that I may serve) and Inclusive VT, the School of Education is committed to serving in the spirit of diversity and equity. The Education Leadership program educates approximately 200 students at Blacksburg, Falls Church, Hampton Roads, Richmond, Roanoke, and on-line.

 

Position: Assistant Professor of Practice in Education Leadership located on either the Falls Church or Richmond campus, depending on the preference of the candidate.
