Northern Arizona University
Executive Director of the School ofNursing  
  Posted Thursday, June 02, 2022

Northern Arizona University (NAU) seeks an Executive Director (ExD) of the School of Nursing (SoN). The ExD will lead and grow NAU's nursing programs during a time of unprecedented financial investment in Arizona's healthcare workforce through Arizona's New Economy Initiative. The next leader of the School of Nursing will provide the vision and strategic leadership to transition the School of Nursing from a unit within the College of Health and Human Sciences to an independent unit at NAU. Based on the NAU's Flagstaff Mountain Campus, the ExD will direct the development of programs in multiple locations across the state of Arizona and will travel to those locations.

The ExD reports to the Dean of CHHS. The position start date is hoped to be July 1, 2022.

Northern Arizona University rests on a student-first foundation, true to its traditions and values as its innovations help to shape the future. NAU has maintained boundless growth in its student population, research endeavors, and creative scholarship since its inception. Today, the institution serves almost 29,000 students through multiple means of delivery: a traditional college experience on a scenic campus, situated in Flagstaff's remarkable landscape at the base of the San Francisco Peaks; convenient classes at one of more than 20 locations across the state, providing flexibility and accessibility; and an award-winning online experience where students can choose from more than 125 virtual programs.

The vision and mission of Northern Arizona University's School of Nursing is to provide outstanding education to students at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels, who can then provide high quality health care services to individuals and diverse communities in an environment of constant change and emerging healthcare trends. The School has a wide array of academic programs, and all programs are fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

The new executive director will lead the SoN through a period of strategic growth. The state of Arizona launched the New Economy Initiative to provide funding to meet needs in high-demand fields that are essential to the state's vitality and economic success. NAU has received nearly $25 million to support health program expansions and other efforts to educate the workforce that will drive forward the new economy of Arizona's future. Additional investment in this initiative is expected. Over the next several years, NAU will add program sites and increase capacity to enroll students in these physical and mental health fields. Investments will be made to upgrade core teaching and learning facilities in support of impactful workforce development.

A doctoral degree from a regionally accredited institution is required. If the doctorate is neither a DNP or PhD in nursing, an MSN or MS with a concentration in nursing from a regionally accredited institution is required in addition to the doctoral degree.

Institution President
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.

Pitzer College
  Posted Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Pitzer College—a nationally-ranked, residential, private liberal arts college in Claremont, California—is seeking a visionary, collaborative, energetic, and highly visible leader as its next president. 

Pitzer produces engaged, socially responsible citizens of the world through an academically rigorous, liberal arts education emphasizing social justice, intercultural understanding, and environmental sustainability. The College offers majors in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and interdisciplinary studies. Pitzer enrolls nearly 1,200 diverse and talented students and is home to approximately 100 faculty, in addition to more than 50 jointly appointed faculty in its intercollegiate science department.

Pitzer is a member of the Claremont Colleges—a unique consortium of five contiguous undergraduate colleges and two graduate institutions that share numerous programs and facilities. For example, Pitzer and Scripps Colleges have just broken ground on a joint, state-of-the-art science center to support interdisciplinary teaching and research. Pitzer and Pomona Colleges jointly operate an outstanding athletics program. The consortium offers Pitzer students the resources of a major university and the benefits of a small liberal arts college with a personalized approach to education.

Pitzer has embraced a spirit of innovation, democratic participation, and challenge to the status quo since its founding in 1963. Pitzer was one of the first colleges in the nation to divest its endowment of fossil fuel stocks and to adopt test-optional and test-free admissions. More recently, its Inside-Out Pathway-to-BA program was the country’s first prison education program, wherein incarcerated “inside” students and “outside” students attend classes together, leading to a bachelor’s degree; the program’s first cohort graduated in May 2022, and one of these inaugural students was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship.

Pitzer students are distinguished by their spirit of inquiry, adventure, and social and political engagement. Each student works closely with faculty to design an academic program that reflects their interests and aspirations. Students are encouraged to study abroad in one of Pitzer’s culturally immersive programs in Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Italy, Nepal, Southern Africa, or Vietnam. Pitzer’s Community Engagement Center and its Robert Redford Conservancy for Southern California Sustainability involve faculty, students, and area residents working together to address regional issues and advocate for social and environmental justice. Pitzer’s highly participatory governance system involves faculty, staff, and students serving together to shape institutional policies and the life of the college.

Pitzer’s board, faculty, and staff are eager to advance the college’s position as a leader in liberal arts education for the 21st century.  Student interest and enrollments are strong, and the College is on sound financial footing. As a relatively young institution, Pitzer seeks to build its endowment and expand the financial aid required to serve students from every economic background. To that end, Pitzer's next president is invited to focus on the following priorities: 

  • Champion Pitzer's longstanding commitment to social justice, intercultural understanding, and environmental sustainability
  • Inspire alums, friends, and philanthropies to support and invest in Pitzer’s future
  • Bring strategic and transparent leadership while engaging in Pitzer’s distinctive shared governance model
  • Elevate and enrich Pitzer’s vision for interdisciplinary science education 
  • Increase Pitzer's visibility and impact regionally, nationally, and beyond

To achieve these objectives, the next president will need to bring passion, energy, a collaborative spirit, and exceptional communication skills to lead the College forward. They will have a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access. Ideally, they will possess an earned doctorate and be a recognized scholar in one or more academic fields or topic areas for which Pitzer is known. The Pitzer community is open to nontraditional candidates who, through previous leadership and commitment to a liberal arts education, would garner the respect of the campus and broader communities.

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.

WittKieffer is assisting Pitzer College in this search. For fullest consideration, candidate materials should be received by August 12, 2022. Application materials should be submitted using WittKieffer’s candidate portal. Nominations and inquiries can be directed to: Suzanne Teer, Alejandra Gillette-Teran, and Lauren Bruce-Stets at

Pitzer College adheres to both the letter and the spirit of Equal Employment opportunity and Affirmative Action. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, sex, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, disability, medical condition, or veteran status, in the administration of its admission policies, educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other College-administered programs, and employment policies. Pitzer strongly encourages candidates from underrepresented groups to apply.
