Departmental Overview

The Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley is home to a diverse group of students and faculty joined by their common interests in understanding and improving the complex world of education. Our students come here with a wealth of academic talent and professional experience, driven to make an impact as researchers, professional educators, leaders and innovators.

Students and faculty tackle difficult questions from how children, youth and adults learn, inside and outside classrooms; to how schools, communities and societies advance the educational and life chances of those they educate. In the process, students develop the necessary knowledge, skills, tools and experiences to handle those challenges.

We are committed to providing and cultivating the very best in educational scholarship, innovation and professional leadership.

The Student Academic Services Office is a central unit in the Graduate School of Education and is responsible for many of the administrative aspects of students degree and credential programs, including: student recruitment, admissions, credential and advanced degree advising, maintenance of student records and related data, certification of public school personnel, student registration and enrollment, course and room scheduling, review of student academic appointments, undergraduate minor program advisement, fellowships, new student orientation, and commencement. The incumbent is responsible for managing the operation of the Student Academic Services Office, including the independent supervision of six staff members, and setting goals and priorities in accordance with the School s mission. The School presently offers three advanced degrees and four credential options through its three main areas of study. The School enrolls 337 students, and serves another 350 undergraduate students through its Education Minor.



* Advanced Degree Matters: The Director oversees the work of the Graduate Assistant who handles most of the advanced degree advisement for the School s students. They also work closely with the Head Graduate Adviser on a variety of advanced degree matters (e.g., length of time-to-degree) and provides background information on School and Graduate Division policies and procedures. They use independent judgment to handle most matters, consulting with the Head Graduate Adviser in serious cases having policy implications and, as appropriate, referring some cases to the School s Policy Committee, or the Dean for review and decision.

* Admissions: Oversees the work of the Admissions Coordinator who handles the admissions function of the School. Meets with key program faculty at the start of the admission cycle to review admissions policies and to ensure uniformity in their implementation across programs. Working with the Dean, determines the number of new students that each Cluster or Program will be able to admit each year (based on the School s overall admissions allocation received from the Graduate Division).

* Student Academic Appointments: The incumbent provides students and faculty with information about appointment requirements, particularly those governing exceptional appointments, and reviews students academic eligibility. The incumbent approves routine appointments, with problems referred to the Head Graduate Adviser.

* Student Recruitment: The Director oversees the staff position for student recruitment. With the Recruitment Coordinator, and the Dean, determines recruiting priorities for the School. Oversees recruitment travel and event budget to make most effective use of available resources. Helps Coordinator arrange Spring Visit Day and Prospective Students Night, and gives presentations at both events.

* Student Registration: Oversees intensive effort at the beginning of each semester contacting students to ensure that they are registered by the campus census deadline and enrolled in sufficient course units. This often requires helping them resolve financial and other registration problems (e.g. blocks ) and following up with central campus offices.

* Credential Programs: Oversees the work of the School s Credentials Analyst. Develops and recommends implementation policies, for regulations affecting our programs. Assists the faculty director in CCTC (accreditation) reviews of the School s credential programs.

* Undergraduate Minor: Oversees the work of the Undergraduate Minor Adviser. Participates on the Undergraduate Minor Committee which is charged with guiding the academic and nonacademic aspects of the Minor. Issues such as setting enrollment limits, levels of GSI support, enhancing student advisement, and ensuring adequate course availability, all have direct or indirect workload ramifications for the Director.

* Fellowships/Financial Support: Oversees the work of the School s Fellowships Coordinator. In addition to awarding monies from the School s Block Grant,

* a number of other departmental funds to distribute. Works with the Fellowships Committee to develop proposals for improving our financial support of students.

* Commencement: The Director plans, coordinates, and executes all aspects of the School s Commencement (venue, speakers, music, catering, and program logistics) with assistance from Student Services staff on the day of the event.

* New Student Orientation: Plans, coordinates, and implements this all-day event (speakers, catering, staffing, and program logistics). The Director also works with student leaders in the School on various aspects of this event. Also, with several Student Services staff members, provides mini Orientations to entering students in our summer-start programs.

* Evaluates the effectiveness of the student services function, and makes changes to the program to provide better
