Bryant & Stratton College (BSC) invites applications and nominations for the position of Vice President of Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer (CAO). With 19 locations in New York, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin and a strong online presence, BSC has been helping working adults continue their education to advance their careers for over 165 years. The CAO will work in the BSC system office in Western New York and is expected to begin the position during summer 2021.
Bryant & Stratton College is a pioneer in post-secondary career education along with an innovator in the associate degree level online learning arena. The College initiated virtual courses in 1999. As the Online Learning division grew, an opportunity to offer blended learning became apparent. Driven by student need for flexibility and a global economy, the College developed a model designed to offer courses in a blended format: 51% of course content in a face-to-face classroom setting and 49% virtually. The model offered the best of both modalities with vibrant high impact virtual content coupled with engaging, “live” interactions in group settings.
Building on this success, the College is poised for an exciting future with strategic and creative endeavors that will not only meet students where they are at but also integrate new and emerging ways to prepare students for the evolving world of work. The next Chief Academic Officer will be a champion of such innovation.
Additionally, as the academic leader of the college, the CAO is responsible for all instructional planning, promoting the development of innovative instructional programs to meet the educational needs of a diverse student population; and developing new programs within the guidelines of program accrediting bodies and Middle States regional accreditation.
