The Department of English, Humanities and Communication in the College of Arts & Sciences (COAS) at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide announces an exciting new strategic initiative to develop a Virtual Center for Excellence in Communication Studies. ERAU actively seeks to improve student communication skills and provide students with a space to practice those skills. These opportunities are especially vital to ERAU’s increasing population of international and first-time-in-college students. A set of resources designed to meet student needs both in and out of the classroom will transform students into future industry leaders representing the world-class education provided by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Finally, communication studies-including but not limited to writing, literacy, media, global communications, and cultural studies-is an important and growing area for interdisciplinary research. The proposed Virtual Center for Excellence in Communication Studies will provide a fertile environment for faculty collaborations and excellence in scholarship. In support of this Center, the Department of English, Humanities and Communication is inviting applications and nominations for two new faculty positions, including this call for an Associate/Full Professor and Director, Virtual Center for Excellence in Communication Studies.

COAS and the Department of English, Humanities and Communication seek a dynamic, nationally recognized academic leader who will serve as Director of the Virtual Center for Excellence in Communication Studies. The Center will feature expansive offerings for students and faculty at every level including a virtual writing center, a MOOC focused on communication, a series of workshops for faculty and students, repositories of resources for improving student communication skills, and robust sources of support for international students. The Center will focus as both a research hub and a student support center. The successful candidate also will provide leadership in the area of Communication Studies for faculty across the departments and colleges of ERAU. Reporting to the EHC Department Chair, the position will have a reduced teaching load to accommodate responsibilities of leadership, program development, and managing activities of an interdisciplinary team. This position will bring with it a strong package of resources necessary to pursue these strategic priorities of EHC and the College.
 
COAS offers four bachelor’s degrees (Communication, Homeland Security, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Emergency Services) and two master’s degrees (Cybersecurity Management & Policy and Human Security & Resilience), with more planned for the near future. Departments in the College are: Security and Emergency Services; English, Humanities and Communications; Mathematics, Physical and Life Sciences; and, Social Sciences and Economics. In addition to degree programs, COAS provides over 2,000 sections of general education courses as part of every degree program at Embry-Riddle Worldwide, with a focus on developing students’ critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, information literacy, communication, scientific literacy, cultural literacy, and lifelong personal growth skills. The Worldwide campus has an enrollment of 23,000 full-time equivalent students, delivering courses globally online via Canvas, synchronously via EagleVision to both homes and classrooms, face-to-face at over 130 locations, and in a blended format. Embry-Riddle Worldwide earned the #1 ranking in 2017 for Best Online Bachelor’s programs from U.S. News & World Report.
