University of Dallas
Provost  
  Posted Wednesday, February 15, 2017
 

The University of Dallas seeks an experienced and talented academic administrator to replace its retiring provost. As a member of President Thomas W. Keefe’s leadership team, the provost is responsible for leading the university’s faculty and academic units.  Five academic deans and the vice president/dean for the Rome campus report to the provost, as do the associate provost, assistant provost, director of institutional research, director of career services, registrar, and the liaison to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  The new provost is expected to begin in July 2017.

The new provost will be a courageous visionary committed to the University of Dallas’s mission and to the Catholic intellectual tradition. The successful candidate will hold a terminal degree in a discipline within one of the University’s academic programs, possess a record of teaching and scholarly success meriting appointment at the rank of full professor, and have significant administrative experience.  This person will demonstrate a collaborative leadership style supporting the ability to work effectively with the faculty, staff, students, deans, senior administrators and trustees.

The new provost will work with the university’s leadership team, faculty, and staff, to foster growth in undergraduate and graduate programs. Under the provost’s guidance, the university’s academic offerings must simultaneously be an expression of its mission and the cornerstone of its sustainability. The provost will ensure that fields of study and the types of degrees offered are designed to enhance the market attractiveness and competitive positioning of the university in a way that reflects its core values. The provost will maintain and strengthen the University’s distinctive academic programs while providing appropriate leadership to support its historic traditions, advocate strategic change, and represent it effectively internally and externally. 

The University of Dallas is organized into four colleges and schools—the Constantin College of Liberal Arts; Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts; Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business; and the Ann & Joe O. Neuhoff School of Ministry. Its academic divisions also include the Cowan-Blakley Memorial Library and the Eugene Constantin Campus located near Rome, Italy.  The University enrolls over 2,300 undergraduate and graduate students in its bachelors, masters, and doctoral programs.  Its academic programs are supported by over 140 full-time undergraduate and graduate faculty. It has an undergraduate student-faculty ratio of 10:1, and approximately 89% of the University’s full-time faculty members hold the highest professional degree in their field.  The University holds the dual distinction of being recognized as a Phi Beta Kappa institution and accredited by the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International) for its business programs.

The Provost Search committee will begin reviewing applications in March with the goal of finalizing the appointment by May 2017. Applications will be received and considered until the position is filled; however, for full consideration applications should be submitted by March 24, 2017.  Applications must include a letter of interest, resume and five professional references with email and telephone numbers (references will not be contacted without prior authorization from the applicant).

Birmingham-Southern College
Provost and Dean of the College  
  Posted Saturday, January 21, 2017
 

Birmingham-Southern College, a four-year, private residential liberal arts college in one of the Sunbelt’s culturally rich and economically vibrant cities, announces the national search for Provost and Dean of the College (Provost).  As the chief academic officer, the Provost has responsibility for all elements of BSC’s academic program, including faculty and academic departments, the Harrison Honors Program, international studies, sponsored programs, and the Krulak Institute for Leadership, Experiential Learning, and Civic Engagement (http://www.bsc.edu/academics/krulak/index.cfm).  In an academic environment known for instructive mentoring, civic engagement, and high student achievement, enrollment is 1300, and more than 95 percent of faculty members have terminal degrees. The successful candidate will succeed Dr. Michelle Behr, who has accepted the chancellorship of The University of Minnesota-Morris.   (For a detailed profile and position description see: http://academic-search.com/sites/default/files/BSCprovost.pdf.)

The College seeks a senior-level academic administrator with a well-rounded and diverse record of achievement in higher education, a strong student-centered focus, an engaging, collegial personal style, and the ability to inspire change and lead with confidence.  A seasoned understanding of education issues, a big-picture approach to opportunities, and a management philosophy based on consensus-building are important, as is the ability to synthesize large amounts of data to make informed decisions about programmatic direction.  The Provost will lead the faculty in identifying other new programs that blend the requirements of a technologically-driven society with the critical thinking trademark of a liberal arts education.

Second in command on the campus, the Provost works closely with the President and senior administrators on wide-ranging efforts to advance an institution that is home to outstanding teachers and scholars and offers unique 21st century programs and outcomes-based curricula. In addition to setting the academic vision and direction of the College, the Provost is an ambassador for its academic programs, works with the senior leadership team to grow enrollment and increase student retention, and assists the Office of Institutional Advancement in cultivating donors and other forms of external funding.
