Wayne State University
Provost and Senior Vice President  
  Posted Wednesday, October 07, 2020

Wayne State University, a premier public research university in the heart of Detroit, invites nominations and applications for provost and senior vice president. The provost will help lead the university as it continues to distinguish itself as a pre-eminent, public, urban research university known for academic and research excellence, transformational education across a diverse undergraduate, graduate and professional student body and meaningful engagement with its urban community.

Founded in 1868, Wayne State is Michigan's third-largest and only urban research university, with the Carnegie Foundation's highest classifications for research and community engagement and annual research expenditures of more than $238 million. Evidenced in its world-renowned faculty, top-ranked programs and groundbreaking discoveries, academic excellence and pioneering research are central to Wayne State's mission. Wayne State is a member of the University Research Corridor, along with the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, generating 95% of research in the state and supporting economic growth throughout Michigan. As one of the city's largest employers, Wayne State has a nearly $2.5 billion impact in Detroit — a driving force behind the city's resurgence. Wayne State consists of 13 schools and colleges offering more than 350 programs to nearly 27,000 graduate, professional and undergraduate students. 

Reporting to President M. Roy Wilson, the provost is the chief academic officer and second-ranking executive officer of the university. Collaborating closely with the president and other executive officers, the provost plays an important leadership role in articulating the university's strategic vision and realizing its successful implementation. The provost also champions Wayne State's mission and priorities with its many internal and external stakeholders, including partnering with the president to engage the city of Detroit, the state of Michigan and beyond.

To build on Wayne State's upward trajectory, the provost must demonstrate a commitment to academic excellence and student success, have entrepreneurial leadership experience and evidence the ability to guide the change necessary for a 21st century urban research university to thrive and succeed. This requires a provost who brings a strong understanding of and commitment to Wayne State's mission and a deep understanding of the current circumstances facing higher education, including the impact and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 crisis. The provost will have significant administrative and academic leadership experience, including a track record of success managing a highly complex organization. As would be expected, strong fiscal and budgetary skills are required. The provost will be a motivational leader and a skilled and enthusiastic collaborator and communicator who is dedicated to transparency and the tenets of shared governance. A sincere and abiding commitment to social justice and the demonstrated ability to champion diversity, equity and inclusion are critical. An earned terminal degree is required, as is a record of scholarship that merits a tenured appointment as a full professor at Wayne State University.

All applications, nominations and inquiries are invited. Applications should include, as separate documents, a CV or resume and a letter of interest. For fullest consideration, candidate materials should be received by November 28, 2020. Application materials should be submitted using WittKieffer’s candidate portal.
