The Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education (CLASE), housed in the Mary Frances Early College of Education (MFECOE) at the University of Georgia (UGA) is pleased to announce the search for an individual to lead and coordinate educational, outreach, and research efforts as The Goizueta Foundation Chair of Latino Teacher Education and the Executive Director of CLASE beginning August 2024 (although the start date is negotiable). The Goizueta Foundation Chair is funded by a generous endowment from the Goizueta Foundation that provides substantial annual support for pursuing research and development activities in Hispanic/Latino/a/x teacher education. The Goizueta Chair/Executive Director will be an individual with a record commensurate with an endowed professorship and appointment as a tenured professor, including recognized outstanding accomplishment, influential work, and national and international prominence in Latino teacher education, broadly defined.

CLASE is committed to UGA’s tripartite mission of research, teaching and service and engages in an integrated array of research, professional development, and outreach initiatives to effectively prepare teachers and school personnel to effectively work with Latino students and families. CLASE has developed a formidable reputation for providing a range of teacher professional learning opportunities and resources grounded in a culturally responsive pedagogical model, Instructional Conversations, that supports academic and linguistic (often multiliterate) achievement of Latino students while promoting resilient and strong multicultural identities. Through these professional learning offerings, CLASE has developed a teacher community of practice that now includes more than 2,000 educators of Latino and other culturally and linguistically diverse learners.

CLASE actively works to create collaborative partnerships with a range of stakeholders at the local, state, national and international levels to conduct research to support the educational outcomes of Latino students. Leveraging the expertise and experience of the Center’s interdisciplinary cohort of Goizueta Foundation graduate assistants, CLASE also provides outreach and mentoring support to P-12 students regarding post-secondary goals and pathways. CLASE further provides program support for districts in developing strategic plans for supporting culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
