Director of the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation

A joint program offered by Clemson University and The College of Charleston

The College of Charleston and Clemson University seek a qualified person to direct their

joint Master of Science Program in Historic Preservation in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Director will oversee the administration and policies; will coordinate all activities,

including budgeting, fund raising, and grant writing; will chair the Joint Steering

Committee and work with them on curricular development and assessment; and will

serve as the official spokesperson for the joint program. The candidate should qualify for

appointment as a tenured, full professor at both institutions. Expectations for teaching,

research, and service are negotiable and will reflect the strengths of the applicant and the

needs of the program. The position line and salary expenses will be covered by the

tuition generated by the program. The Director will be housed in Charleston.

The Director should have a terminal degree in historic preservation, architecture,

landscape architecture, planning, or other relevant fields, with significant experience in

historic preservation. Those candidates with previous administrative experience, a record

of external fund raising, and strong connections to related organizations and disciplinary

groups (such as historic preservation agencies, foundations, and societies) are preferred.

Candidates must demonstrate a solid record of scholarship, teaching, and professional

practice. Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Review of materials

will begin immediately and will continue until the October 30 deadline. Position will

remain open until filled.

Clemson University and the College of Charleston together administer the program that

was established in the fall of 2004 and is projected to grow from the current 24 students

to 30 students. The director will oversee the smooth running of a program that addresses

issues of national and international concern while using the city of Charleston and the

Low Country region of South Carolina as a teaching and research laboratory. The city of

Charleston strongly supports historic preservation and cultivates a strong preservationist

community. Numerous collaborative opportunities are possible with the Historic

Charleston Foundation, the Preservation Society of Charleston, the National Park

Service, the National Trust, the SC SHPO office, US ICOMOS and the American College

of the Building Arts. The director will also coordinate various international study options

such as Clemsons off-campus programs in Genoa and Orvieto, Italy; Barcelona, Spain;

Tunisia; and Istanbul, Turkey.

Located in the heart of historic Charleston, the program serves a diverse student body

attracting from national and international communities.

Salary and rank will be commensurate with credentials and experience. Candidates

Preservation Director Search Committee, c/o Rae Ann Blyth, Clemson

University/College of Charleston, 292 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29401.
