Job Title: Data and Evaluation Associate (Bard Early Colleges)

Position Overview:

The Data and Evaluation Associate is a full-time, exempt position of Bard Early College. The successful candidate will excel at working in a community that is broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation and religion.

The Data and Evaluation Associate is the primary manager of academic data for the Bard Early Colleges, and the primary liaison with Bard College on data-related matters. The Associate will be responsible for collecting, maintaining, analyzing, and reporting out on data for all Bard Early College campuses, including student outcomes by subgroup, school performance, and trends. The responsibilities also include helping key stakeholders, including school leaders, make programmatic decisions using the available data and statistics, and ensuring that Bard College has access to the full range of data available for the Bard Early Colleges, including student performance during and after the early college program. The Data and Evaluation Associate will report to the Vice President and Dean of Bard Early College. 

About the Bard Early Colleges

The Bard Early Colleges (BEC) are founded on the belief that, for many young people, college can and should start at an earlier age. Bard Early College’s simple idea - to begin serious college study in place of the traditional 11th and 12th grades, at no cost to students or families - has had an extraordinary impact on young people and on education innovation and equity in America.

The Bard Early Colleges offer a truly unique home for young people’s intellectual ambition: as both tuition-free, branch campuses of Bard College and public high schools, they award a high school diploma and a Bard College Associate in Arts degree (and 60 transferable credits) by the end of the 12th grade. Students are taught by college faculty in undergraduate, seminar classes, all deeply rooted in the liberal arts and sciences, in Bard College’s commitment to excellence in teaching, and in Bard’s mission as a private college in the public interest.

Now entering its third decade, the Bard Early College network enrolls over 3,000 young people in campuses in Queens, Manhattan, and Hudson, New York; Newark, New Jersey; New Orleans, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; and Washington, D.C.

Those eight campuses are supported by a central leadership team, which is a division of Bard College. Bard invites applications for a creative, proactive, and mission-driven individual who will join that team as Data and Evaluation Associate.
