Valparaiso University, in partnership with the national search firm Scott Healy & Associates, invites applications and nominations for a dynamic and experienced Program Director for the Occupational Therapy (OT) Program.  This residential program will join several successful programs in nursing, health care leadership, health administration, health science, public health and physician assistant housed within the College of Nursing and Health Professions.  We seek a well-qualified and innovative leader who will lead a team of high-quality educators to prepare future practitioners to provide occupational therapy services to clients.  The program director will oversee the curriculum; strategic planning and partnerships; fiscal management of personnel and faculty resources; collaboration and innovation for interprofessional education; accreditation that meets all standards of Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE); ongoing maintenance of accreditation; and the recruitment for and promotion of the program.  This 12-month position may include teaching in areas of clinical expertise and program need, and scholarship/professional development, as appropriate.  The program director will collaborate with faculty and administrators in the College of Nursing and Health Professions, but also across the greater institution.  Together, these health leaders will assist with the design of teaching and research areas in a technologically advanced space, and ultimately form cohesive programs that expand the University’s mission-driven approach to student centered learning.
