The College of Arts & Sciences (COAS) at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide announces an exciting new strategic initiative to develop a world-class flagship program in Emergency Services. As part of this initiative, COAS will be conducting a cluster faculty hire over the next few years that is inclusive of a broad range of disciplines that encompass the Emergency Services area of study. Upon completion, it is envisioned that this faculty focus group will include expertise from areas such as physics, chemistry, risk management, statistics, operations research, communications, economics, and psychology. Currently, COAS is inviting applications and nominations for the first two positions in this Emergency Services cluster hire, including this call for an Instructor in the Department of Security and Emergency Services (SES).

COAS invites highly qualified applicants to apply for a non-tenure-track, full-time Instructor position in the Department of Security and Emergency Services. This is primarily a teaching position that will serve the needs of the growing Emergency Services program, including mentoring and evaluating adjunct faculty, curriculum development, and serving as the ES Program Liaison with other departments. However, the position also will be part of a large group of strategic Instructor hires across the three Worldwide colleges, with the goals of a) reducing dependence on adjunct faculty for high impact courses, and b) supporting student academic mentoring. These new faculty members will have a reduced teaching load for the purpose of:

conducting student academic mentoring
participating in a core faculty group at one of six physical locations nationally (Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, Seattle) that generate large student populations; the core faculty groups will create a vibrant Center of Learning at each of these locations
hosting student activities and alumni events
creating hybrid courses that incorporate intensive face-to-face sessions at each Center of Learning.
The ultimate goal for these strategic hires is to provide a more personalized experience for students that will lead to an increase in student affinity with the colleges and Embry-Riddle while improving rates of persistence to degree completion. Some travel may be required for student recruitment and retention.

The Department of Security and Emergency Services currently offers a BS in Emergency Services that has seen remarkable growth, now serving over 180 undergraduate majors. The program is highly acclaimed, recently receiving the #1 ranking from Best Colleges for Online Emergency Services Undergraduate Programs. The BS-ES also is a recognized degree program of Fire Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) and carries accreditation from the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC). COAS has approved the development of a MS in Emergency Services, as part of the new College Strategic Directions that were ratified by the faculty in October 2017. Anticipated start date for the first cohort of Master’s students is Fall 2019.

COAS offers four bachelor’s degrees (Communication, Homeland Security, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Emergency Services) and two master’s degrees (Cybersecurity Management & Policy and Human Security & Resilience), with more planned for the near future. Departments in the College are: Security and Emergency Services; English, Humanities and Communications; Mathematics, Physical and Life Sciences; and, Social Sciences and Economics. In addition to degree programs, COAS provides over 2,000 sections of general education courses as part of every degree program at Embry-Riddle Worldwide, with a focus on developing students’ critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, information literacy, communication, scientific literacy, cultural literacy, and lifelong personal growth skills. The Worldwide campus has an enrollment of 23,000 full-time equivalent students, delivering courses globally online via Canvas, synchronously via EagleVision to both homes and classrooms, face-to-face at over 130 locations, and in a blended format. Embry-Riddle Worldwide earned the #1 ranking in 2017 for Best Online Bachelor’s programs from U.S. News & World Report.
