The MAEE is a unique 11-month immersive graduate program aimed at creating the next leaders in the environmental education field. Our students are highly motivated, and we value robust collaboration within our faculty community and also between faculty and students. We will prioritize candidates who have demonstrated interest and creativity around interdisciplinary collaboration and coalition-building.

As MAEE coordinator, this position leads curriculum development, delivery, and assessment, participates in graduate student recruitment efforts in cooperation with Goshen College Admissions, serves as academic advisor and professional mentor of MAEE students, supports learning community dynamics of MAEE cohorts, and assists with SEED planning and budget development. The position also includes contracted time for research or other professional activities.

All teaching faculty at Goshen College also serve on institution-wide committees. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to our strong tradition of excellence in teaching, scholarship, and publication.
