The successful applicant will serve as director for the New Neighbors Center, a research-based university-school partnership project that focuses on the academic success of new English Language learners within a network of five school districts in southern Indiana. The New Neighbors Center also provides professional development for administrators and teachers, cultural competence training for area school staff (office, cafeteria, transportation, and health personnel), family guidance, and youth support and empowerment. Directing the New Neighbors Center requires skills including grant writing, building school and community partnerships, and networking and collaborating with school partners and other faculty researchers.
