The Department of Counselor Education (EDCO) at San José State University invites well-qualified applicants to submit materials for consideration as we anticipate welcoming a new tenure-track faculty colleague beginning in the 2024-25 Academic Year at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate (Tenured) Professor.

We seek a candidate with professional experience in educational and/or mental health counseling within postsecondary educational settings, a record of successful teaching experience at the college level, a demonstrated ability to effectively partner with colleges and schools, an established record of scholarship, and a demonstrated ability of successful mentoring of students in research and professional development. Ideally, our new colleague will have expertise and experience in counseling within community college and/or other post-secondary educational settings; and both should be skilled and demonstrably committed to supporting the development, well-being, and success of students whose racial, ethnic, gender, and/or sexual identities remain underserved within the postsecondary education sector.

Our department faculty like and respect each other, centering strong ethical practice, open and inclusive communication, creativity, and academic freedom. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues to join in preparing our nearly 200 talented and diverse graduate students for educational counseling and related careers in K-12, postsecondary, and community-based contexts. We and our graduates share commitments to advocacy, social justice, and life-long learning. Our students complete a Master of Arts degree in Counseling and Guidance with or without a Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) School Counseling Credential (required to work as K-12 School Counselors in California), and a Child Welfare & Attendance Authorization. Students also have the option to complete preparatory courses and fieldwork associated with Associate & Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (APCC/LPCC) requirements (see:
