Open Faculty Positions

Four ideas frame the work of the faculty in the USC Rossier School of Education:

  • The importance of research having an impact;
  • The centrality of innovation in research and in the education sector;
  • The ability to transgress disciplinary boundaries; and
  • The significance of collaboration.

USC Rossier faculty are heavily engaged in research that helps shape state and federal public policy.  We work closely with the second largest school district in the United States – the Los Angeles Unified School District.  We are involved in long-term collaborative efforts with schools, community colleges, postsecondary institutions and community-based organizations.  Our intent is to create research of consequence and to develop intellectuals prepared for faculty and administrative positions in an increasingly complex world.

The mission of the USC Rossier School is to prepare leaders to achieve educational equity through practice, research and policy. We work to improve learning opportunities and outcomes in urban settings and to address disparities that affect historically marginalized groups. We teach our students to value and respect the cultural context of the communities in which they work and to interrogate the systems of power that shape policies and practices. Through innovative thinking and research, we strive to solve the most intractable educational problems.
