  • Potential for partnerships with The Warner School's Center For Urban Education Success; The University of Rochester Medical Center's Office of Health Equity Research; and/or East High School, an urban public school which the Warner School has partnered with to assist in their transformation to improve educational outcomes.
  • Experience and a demonstrated commitment to teaching and mentoring graduate students, especially those committed to researching and serving the needs of students from traditionally marginalized and underrepresented backgrounds.
  • Commitment to engaging in meaningful local and national service.

The Warner School is developing an extensive infrastructure to support these cluster hires, which includes comprehensive mentorship, regular trainings and workshops designed specifically to address the needs of diverse faculty, and connections to university and community resources. We will also provide a fully paid research leave for one semester (after three years) to support diversity, equity, and inclusion research.

About the Warner School: The Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development is part of the University of Rochester, one of the world's leading research-intensive universities. At the Warner School we believe that education can transform lives and make the world more just and humane. This vision informs our teaching, research and service as a research school of education, as we strive to: PREPARE practitioners and researchers who are knowledgeable, reflective, skilled and caring educators, who can make a difference in individual lives as well as their fields, and who are leaders and agents of change; GENERATE and disseminate knowledge leading to new understandings of education and human development, on which more effective educational policies and practices can be grounded; COLLABORATE across disciplines, professions and constituencies to promote change that can significantly improve education and support positive human development.

Our diverse work in each of these domains is informed by the following underlying beliefs: the improvement of education is in pursuit of social justice; development and learning shape and are shaped by the contexts in which they occur; the complexity of educational problems requires an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach; and best practices are grounded in research and theory, just as useful theory and research are informed by practice. The Warner School fosters a learning community that represents and builds on the rich diversity of human experiences, backgrounds, cultures, histories, ideas and ways of living.
