University of Texas at El Paso
Dean of the College of Liberal Arts  
  Posted Friday, November 19, 2021
 


Dean of the College of Liberal Arts

 

 


About The University of Texas at El Paso:

The University of Texas at El Paso is America's leading Hispanic-serving university. Located at the westernmost tip of Texas, where three states and two countries converge along the Rio Grande, UTEP is a public research university that transforms lives. Ninety-four percent of UTEP's nearly 25,000 students are minorities, and many are the first in their families to go to college. At UTEP, students have access to 168 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in nine colleges and schools. UTEP is the only open-access, top tier research university in America, yet its retention rates exceed those of selective institutions.

Located in the second-most educated city in Texas, UTEP is recognized as one of the best research universities in the country for connecting students with the community around them. It is one of only 28 institutions in the U.S. and 3 in Texas to hold both top tier research and community engagement distinctions from the Carnegie Foundation.

UTEP advances discovery of public value and positively impacts the health, culture, education and economy of the community it serves. With more than $108 million in total annual research expenditures, the University is ranked among the top 5% of colleges and universities in research and fifth in Texas for federal research expenditures at public universities.

The University employs approximately 4,000 faculty, staff and students. It has one of the lowest out-of-pocket costs of any research university in the U.S., underscoring its commitment to offer an exceptional education at a great value. Almost 25% of graduates from the poorest backgrounds reach the top income quintile, placing UTEP in the top 10 universities in American for social mobility.

The College of Liberal Arts:

The College of Liberal Arts has been the heart of a UTEP education since its founding in 1967, the year UTEP gained university status within the University of Texas System. Virtually every student who pursues an undergraduate degree at UTEP passes through the College of Liberal Arts as the College provides most of the UTEP core curriculum and is the largest College at UTEP. The College offers degree programs in the fine and performing arts, humanities, and the behavioral and social sciences. The College is distinguished by a strong commitment to community engagement, recently expressed by the solicitation and development of a Community Engaged Learning (CEL) designation for a range of undergraduate courses.

Students investigate identity and engage in creative expression through innovative programming and curriculum in the visual arts, theatre, dance, music, and creative writing. Several recent grants in the College have funded undergraduate student research in the humanities and paid internships in humanities-related entities, drawing students in history, literary and rhetorical studies, languages and linguistics, and philosophy. Our robust majors in the behavioral and social sciences have likewise engaged students deeply in undergraduate research and internships, from labs in psychology to research in sociology, anthropology, political science, communication, and criminal justice. The Patricia and Paul Yetter Law School Preparation Institute, a program that helps prepare UTEP students for law school, is nationally known for its success, and the Institute for Oral History has offered students rich opportunities to contribute to their community. Students also benefit from an increasing number of study-abroad opportunities. All of these experiences are enhanced by the College's honors program, which began in 2012 with a variety of academic enrichment components and an honors minor.

The College includes 21 departments. In addition, the College hosts a range of programs which feature interdisciplinary work in African American studies, Asian studies, Chicano/a/x studies, Latin American and border studies, leadership and community engagement, multidisciplinary studies, public administration, religious studies, military science, and women's and gender studies. The College also encompasses the Stanley and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts, which features student, faculty, and visiting exhibitions, and the Centennial Musuem and Chihuahua Desert Gardens- also known as the first museum to be established in the City of El Paso- with exhibits on the natural and cultural history of the Chihuahuan Desert region and the ties of friendship that exist between the University and Bhutan.

The College also promotes excellence through its many graduate programs, from its online bilingual MFA in Creative Writing- the first of its kind in the country- to its doctoral degrees in Borderlands History, Rhetoric and Composition, and Psychology, and a range of MA, MS, MM, MAT, MDSS, and MPA programs. Faculty engage in interdisciplinary research in Hispanic health disparities, social justice, border studies, digital humanities, community-engaged and public-facing scholarship, and environmental communication, among many other areas.

The College's teaching and research mission is led by 170 tenured or tenure-track faculty, with outstanding staff providing leadership and support across the College. We are proud to have the largest number of winners of the University of Texas Regents' Outstanding Teaching award of any college at UTEP, and the College has worked to develop multiple structures to support faculty research in recent years. Over 6200 undergraduates are enrolled across the 34 bachelor's programs, and over 600 graduate students are enrolled across the 24 master's and 3 Ph.D. programs. Seven undergraduate, four master's, and one graduate certificate program are offered online. The college awarded 1,236 bachelor's, 240 master's and 21 Ph.D. degrees during the 2019-20 academic year.

  Posted Monday, November 08, 2021
 

Dean of the School of Science

The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), one of the nation’s preeminent public institutions, seeks a visionary academic leader and experienced administrator with a strong record as a teacher-scholar for the position of Dean of the School of Science. The new dean will assume office in the summer of 2022.

TCNJ has earned national recognition for its commitment to excellence and is consistently rated as the No. 1 public school in the north by U.S. News & World Report. TCNJ offers academically talented students an engaging living-learning undergraduate education and a rewarding residential experience, small classes, and a prestigious faculty. TCNJ also offers a number of distinctive graduate programs. A strong liberal learning core forms the foundation for a wealth of degree programs offered through TCNJ’s seven academic schools: The Arts and Communication; Business; Education; Engineering; Humanities and Social Sciences; Nursing, Health, and Exercise Science; and Science. An additional host of nearly 20 centers and institutes fosters interdisciplinary work, engagement with the local community, and global outreach. The curriculum is enriched by an award-winning First-Year Experience, first-year orientation programs, and extensive opportunities for study abroad.

TCNJ enrolls approximately 7,400 students. Its 6,790 undergraduate students are enrolled in majors in over 50 liberal arts and professional programs. Approximately 610 graduate students are enrolled in 47 targeted master-level and certificate programs. The college’s 355 full-time faculty members are dedicated teacher-scholars, with 90 percent having earned the highest degree in their respective areas. Strong curricular and co-curricular programming have helped foster a freshman-to-sophomore retention rate of 93 percent, a 4-year graduation rate of 75 percent (7th highest in the U.S. for public institutions), and a 6-year graduation rate of 86 percent (among the highest in the country). Evidencing a diverse and inclusive environment, 28 percent of full-time instructional faculty members and 22 percent of TCNJ’s students are from underrepresented groups. TCNJ’s picturesque Georgian colonial campus is located in suburban Ewing, New Jersey. Ewing is approximately five miles from Trenton, the state capital, 10 miles from Princeton, 45 minutes from Philadelphia, and 90 minutes from New York City.

TCNJ’s School of Science provides a challenging, high-quality education to more than 1,200 undergraduate students studying across the sciences and mathematics and in interdisciplinary fields. TCNJ’s scientific community is both academically rigorous and personally supportive, emphasizing a deep level of engagement, a signature research-intensive curriculum, and close faculty mentorship. Eighty-two outstanding faculty members and 19 dedicated full-time staff members deliver rigorous programs in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, and Physics.

The School of Science has been awarded nearly $30 million in external grants to support mission-central efforts, with $8.1 million awarded in the last five years. TCNJ’s new STEM Complex, completed in 2020, underscores the college’s commitment to fully integrating students into the knowledge-sharing environments of 21st-century science, technology, engineering, and math. This nearly $100 million investment encompassed a new 89,000-square-foot STEM Building supporting interdisciplinary faculty-student collaborative research, a new 26,300-square-foot Chemistry addition, and a new glass-enclosed forum, as well as renovations of the existing Biology Building, Chemistry Building, Physics & Mathematics Building, and Engineering Building (Armstrong Hall).

The Dean of the School of Science reports to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and is a valued member of the Deans’ Council. The dean oversees an operating budget of $15.7 million and works closely with the assistant dean, department chairs, and administrative staff members to strengthen teaching and scholarship in every program. The dean also works in partnership with dedicated staff in the Development Office on fundraising initiatives. The dean oversees a complex portfolio of responsibilities. 

 

The dean will be a distinguished scientist and educator with a national perspective, setting high but attainable standards for pedagogy and scholarship; fostering curricular integration, development, and innovation; and guiding faculty and departments in institutional and program accreditation and assessment.

President - Talladega College  
  Posted Tuesday, September 28, 2021
 

The Board of Trustees of Talladega College invites nominations for and expressions of interest in the position of president.

Founded in 1867 as Alabama’s first private, liberal arts college serving black students, Talladega College has been known for academic excellence for more than 150 years. Its dedication to delivering horizon-expanding educational opportunities has yielded tremendous success. Notable alumni have included civil rights leaders, political luminaries, college presidents, accomplished business executives, outstanding social and natural scientists, and award-winning writers. The College sustains a close-knit community of more than 1,300 students on a 50-acre campus surrounded by the city of Talladega, Alabama and gently rolling woodlands.

The next Talladega President will be able to build on significant accomplishments over the last 13 years. Enrollment has expanded significantly, financial difficulties have been ameliorated through new programs and some generous grants, and three new buildings have been added to the campus over the past two years alone. There are also challenges, including student retention and graduation rates, and the low rate of alumni giving. In this environment, the incoming Talladega President must provide sustained, visionary, and innovative leadership that understands and effectively acts on these challenges as well as the enormous opportunities ahead.

To be successful, the next Talladega President will need strong financial, business, and marketing skills, a demonstrated track record of leading strategic change and successful fundraising, and the ability to articulate a compelling case and vision for the College's future. The next president must also demonstrate significant experience at the senior level of an institution or organization of substantial complexity along with proven leadership ability and managerial success.

In addition, the next Talladega President will be student-centered and committed to the values, goals, and mission of the College to provide a quality education to all students, including those who may need academic and financial support. The selected candidate must also have impeccable integrity, expert listening skills, an abiding respect for shared governance and collaborative leadership, and an extraordinary ability to build relationships.

All applications, nominations, and inquiries are invited. Applications should include, as separate documents, a CV or resume and a letter of interest addressing the themes in the leadership profile found at www.wittkieffer.com. For fullest consideration, candidate materials should be received by December 3, 2021.

WittKieffer is assisting Talladega College in this search. Application materials can be submitted using WittKieffer’s candidate portal. Confidential nominations and inquiries can be directed to the College’s consultants, Greg Duyck, Christine Pendleton, and Oliver Tomlin at TalladegaPresident@wittkieffer.com.

President - Radford University     Posted Friday, July 02, 2021
 

The Radford University Board of Visitors invites applications and nominations for the role of President. The successful candidate will have the vision, experience, credentials, skills and integrity to build upon the many successes of President Brian O. Hemphill, Ph.D., who has positioned the University to continue to grow in enrollment, fundraising and academic reputation.  

 

Radford University is a comprehensive public institution that is known for student-focused academic programs, a strong emphasis on service to others and a picturesque campus. As a mid-size institution, the University provides its students a winning combination of broad opportunities associated with a large university, as well as highly personalized relationships considered the hallmark of a smaller college. Well-known for its innovative use of technology in the learning environment and vibrant student life, Radford University offers many opportunities for success in and out of the classroom.

 

Located along the New River in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, its beautiful, 204-acre American classical campus is filled with state-of-the-art-facilities, including the newly renovated Reed and Curie Halls in the Artis College of Science and Technology. The University just recently broke ground on the new Artis Center for Adaptive Innovation and Creativity, a revolutionary facility that will blend the arts and health sciences. Additionally, in 2019, Carilion Clinic, Jefferson College of Health Sciences and Radford University joined together to merge Jefferson College of Health Sciences into Radford University’s colleges and departments. The merger came to life as Radford University Carilion (RUC).  This public-private partnership focuses on cutting edge delivery of health sciences programming, outreach and service. RUC, located in Roanoke, Virginia, enrolled its first class of Highlanders in Fall 2019.

 

The University is well positioned to continue to elevate its profile nationally and internationally. The next President will work with the faculty, students, staff, alumni and members of the business community to identify, foster and enhance programs throughout the University. The next President will also work to promote the Radford brand so that Radford University is a school of choice for students in the Commonwealth of Virginia, the region, the nation and beyond.

 

The President of Radford University is the chief executive officer, appointed by and accountable to the Board of Visitors. The President is responsible for the leadership of the institution in compliance with University policies and consistent with all applicable federal, state and local laws. The President oversees the day-to-day administration of the institution while respecting the time-honored internal governance model of the University.

The University has significant opportunities to increase public and private revenue streams and remains committed to increasing philanthropic support through the continued expansion of student scholarships, academic excellence and research, student success and engagement, the athletic experience and emerging needs.

 

Radford University’s next president should possess a distinguished record of executive leadership while also demonstrating a commitment to scholarship, learning and discovery. The successful candidate must embrace excellence and integrity, and exhibit the leadership abilities required to achieve the University’s vision. The desired leader should have a proven track record for building an accomplished, talented and diverse senior leadership team. Experience in securing funding from multiple sources is required. The next president of Radford University will be a proven collaborative and entrepreneurial leader and a successful manager of people and programs. The next president must demonstrate a responsible administrative leadership approach and a collegial and transparent leadership style.

 

The ability and enthusiasm to connect with business, government and community leaders and a willingness to spend a considerable percentage of time and energy on external relations are critical. With $68 million already raised of a recently announced $100 million capital campaign, demonstrated skill as a successful fundraiser will be a distinct advantage, and the personal qualities of the successful relationship builder – including exceptional communication skills – are absolutely required. Additional skills and experience that are highly preferred are: dealing with accreditation agencies, soliciting grants, developing international programming, creating new programs and direct experience dealing with advisory or governing boards.

 

How to Apply

 

Greenwood/Asher & Associates, Inc. is assisting Radford University in this search. Applications and nominations are now being accepted. For a full application package, please include a cover letter, CV and list of five references. Confidential inquiries, nominations and application materials should be directed to Greenwood/Asher and Associates. Submission of application materials as PDF attachments is strongly encouraged. The search will be conducted with a commitment to confidentiality for candidates. Initial screening of applications will begin immediately and will continue until an appointment is made.

THE SEARCH FOR A SINGLE PRESIDENT

 


The College of Saint Benedict (CSB) and Saint John's University (SJU), two highly selective, national liberal arts Catholic institutions, are pursuing a transition from two campus presidents to a "strongly-integrated single leadership model" for the two institutions. The inaugural president under the integrated single leadership model will report to the common boards of CSB and SJU, and will provide leadership, vision, and direction for these institutions with centralized administrative and other functions. The trustees seek a talented, mission focused, results oriented leader with a demonstrated track record of success who possesses the competencies, experiences, and qualifications sought by two outstanding institutions.

This is an opportunity for a visionary leader energized by the possibility to lead already strong institutions to the forefront of American higher education. This moment is ideal for a transformational, forward-looking leader to build on that strong foundation and to integrate the best qualities of CSB and SJU into something greater than the simple sum of both. The right candidate must model Catholic and Benedictine values, provide inspired leadership, and establish strong working relationships with key internal and external constituent groups and with the common Board of Trustees. The new president will take office by July 1, 2022.

The CSB and SJU are two nationally recognized liberal arts colleges with a rich history of collaborating to educate students. The campuses are located six miles apart in central Minnesota and are surrounded by 3,000 acres of forest, prairies, and lakes. CSB is located in St. Joseph, Minnesota and SJU is in Collegeville, Minnesota. CSB enrolls 1,557 degree-seeking undergraduate women from 32 states and 5 foreign countries. SJU enrolls 1,643 degree-seeking undergraduate men from 37 states and 11 foreign countries.

Academic Search is assisting CSB and SJU in this national search. For more information about the position, leadership agenda, qualifications, and application process, please review the full position profile on the Academic Search website.

Seattle University
Vice President for University Advancement  
  Posted Tuesday, October 26, 2021
 

Seattle University (SU) seeks a visionary, strategic and inclusive vice president of university advancement.

Founded in 1891, Seattle University is a Jesuit, Catholic university located in downtown Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood. One of the Northwest’s largest independent universities, SU is home to more than 7,000 undergraduate and graduate students and more than 90,000 alumni globally. Seattle University is on the forefront of empowering students for successful careers in a just and humane world. SU consistently achieves high rankings among the best universities nationally for its rigorous, personalized and values-centered Jesuit education.

Seattle University's University Advancement's (UA) 60-plus member team consists of development, alumni engagement and advancement services and has an annual operating budget of $4.9 million. SU's new vice president will assume leadership of the office at an advantageous time – at the conclusion of a successful campaign; on the cusp of planning its next campaign; and at the outset of the tenure of Seattle University's 22nd President, Eduardo M. Peñalver. Serving on the president's cabinet, the next vice president will have the opportunity to shape and guide the future of philanthropy at SU, including re-engaging alumni, community and corporate partners; creating a culture of belonging within the advancement team; and catalyzing the academic units and other departments as they pursue their fundraising goals and aspirations. The position is an executive officer of the institution and is a key member of the university’s executive leadership team.

To succeed in the role, the vice president will have served as a senior and successful leader of advancement programs and their people. Superior strategic ability at the institutional, departmental and individual prospect levels is of the utmost importance. The successful candidate will demonstrate a robust record of accomplishment as a major/principal gift fundraiser and manager of advancement professionals. The next vice president will model leadership and bring to bear successful experience advancing institutional diversity, equity and inclusion.

Substantial leadership and management acumen is required, and thus the ideal candidate will have successfully led or had a major leadership role in development of advancement programs for at least seven years, with a significant proportion of that experience in the service of one or more institutions of significant complexity and accomplishment. As would be expected, superior communication and relationship-building skills are required, as is a bachelor’s degree, with an advanced degree preferred. A track record for building strong, actionable relationships across the entire academic and co-curricular spectrum of one or more institutions will be a distinct advantage, as will a deep understanding of data analysis and an approach that uses data to drive strategy.

All applications, nominations and inquiries are invited. Applications should include, as separate documents, a CV or resume and a letter of interest addressing the themes in the profile, available at www.wittkieffer.com.

WittKieffer is assisting Seattle University in this search. For fullest consideration, candidate materials should be received by November 29, 2021. Application materials should be submitted using WittKieffer’s candidate portal.
