The University invites inquiries, nominations and applications for the position.

Located in the scenic Hudson Valley, and with easy access to New York City, New Paltz (newpaltz.edu) was founded in 1828.

A highly selective and diverse university, New Paltz's mission and strategic objectives are supported by the core values of academic excellence, regional engagement, diversity and inclusion, and innovation.           

The Provost fulfills a key role in university-wide matters, participates in system-wide academic initiatives and planning, and represents the university to appropriate external bodies. The Provost assumes overall institutional responsibility when the President is unavailable and must maintain high academic standards in an era of budgetary restraint, while nurturing the spirit of collaboration and entrepreneurship that is found on campus. Growing enrollment and high graduation rates coupled with widespread academic success for students of all backgrounds have earned national recognition for New Paltz and make this an exceptional leadership opportunity.

The successful candidate will hold an earned terminal degree, a progressive record of academic leadership experience in public or private higher education, a distinguished record of teaching and scholarship appropriate for an appointment as a tenured Full Professor in one of the university's academic departments. For the full list of qualifications, the application process and additional information about this opportunity, please review the position profile at www.academicsearch.org under the “Open Searches” tab.

Illinois State University
Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost  
  Posted Tuesday, October 15, 2019
 

Illinois State University (ISU) seeks a seasoned leader with deep administrative and academic experience to serve as its next vice president for academic affairs and provost.

Founded in 1857, Illinois State is the oldest public university in the state. Located in Normal, 125 miles southwest of Chicago, ISU hosts a diverse community of scholars committed to fostering a small-college atmosphere with large-university opportunities. Illinois State's mission is based on a shared set of core values: individualized attention, integrity, learning and scholarship, collaboration, respect, diversity and inclusion, and civic engagement. Students at Illinois State find rigorous academic programs that challenge them to be their best and a welcoming and supportive campus atmosphere that helps them grow and mature as scholars, citizens, and leaders. It has a total enrollment of 20,878 students (18,250 undergraduate and 2,628 graduate) situated on a 1,111 acre campus.

The U.S. News & World Report ranked Illinois State in America’s 100 top public national universities. The University's retention rate remains among the highest in the nation at over 78.6%, and the high graduation rate (69.1%) is well above the national average. In 2019, the University welcomed its largest and most diverse freshman class in 33 years. Illinois State's campus reflects the nation's changing demographics with one quarter of the student population coming from underrepresented groups. In addition, the University has been named a "Great College to Work For" for the fifth consecutive year by The Chronicle of Higher Education—the only four-year, public university in Illinois on the list.

The incoming provost will serve as ISU's chief academic officer, supporting the implementation of the University's academic mission and providing curricular and administrative leadership within a stable, forward-looking, and multicultural academic environment. The provost provides leadership to all deans and academic administrators for the purpose of assessing, planning, and budgeting the academic enterprise of the campus. While maintaining the institution's commitment to fostering a small-college environment, the provost should keep student learning and success at the forefront, while also supporting an increase in research, creative activity, and scholarship. Chief among the provost’s responsibilities will be working effectively with the president and senior leadership to execute the University's new strategic plan. The provost will collaborate with campus leadership to identify and implement transformational initiatives that will further strengthen the University and community.

The provost will be an engaged, collaborative, and entrepreneurial leader with a demonstrated commitment to faculty excellence and student success. The provost will be an institutional advocate and effective communicator with both internal and external constituencies. A strong appreciation of and commitment to Illinois State's mission and values is essential. The next provost should have earned academic credentials that merit appointment as a tenured full professor, including a distinguished academic record in teaching, scholarship, and research. A proven record of broad, progressive, and substantive administrative leadership at the level of dean, associate provost, provost, or similar position will be essential. For more information, please visit www.wittkieffer.com.

Inquiries, nominations, and applications are invited. For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by December 20, 2019. Candidates should provide, as three separate documents, a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the leadership profile, and the names and contact information of five references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates. These materials should be sent electronically via e-mail to the Illinois State University’s consultants Zachary A. Smith, Ph.D. and Alejandra Gillette-Teran at IllinoisStateProvost@wittkieffer.com. The consultants can be reached through the office of Hillary Hmura at 630-575-6959.

Whittier College
Vice President, Academic Affairs & Dean of Faculty  
  Posted Friday, October 11, 2019
 

Whittier College announces a national search for an experienced, innovative, collaborative and visionary Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty (VPAA/DOF).

Whittier is a four-year liberal arts institution inspired by a Quaker heritage that prepares students to be active citizens and effective communicators who embrace diversity and act with integrity. While non-denominational since the 1940s, Whittier takes pride in the social values of its Quaker heritage – respect for the individual, freedom of conscience, integrity, justice, service and internationalism.

Whittier enrolls approximately 1,670 undergraduates and 73 graduate students and offers over 30 majors in 23 disciplines leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree including business, political science, psychology, English and biology. In 2019, Whittier granted 382 degrees, 362 of which were at the undergraduate level. Additionally, the College’s long-standing graduate program in education offers both credential and Master of Arts in education degree programs that further the institution's tradition of excellence in the preparation of teachers. Broadoaks Children's School – a private, non-profit demonstration school on the Whittier campus – serves as a learning laboratory for Whittier faculty and students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Whittier is designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and its graduation rate for Latino students is among the best in the nation. In addition, the College qualifies for the designation of an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI). The Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC), when reaffirming accreditation, observed that "Learning outcomes have been established, and evidence has been collected on how students experience diversity on campus. The Commission joins the team in commending Whittier for providing a full and rich experience in the classroom, in co-curricular activities, in the living environment and in field experiences with respect to culture and diversity."

The Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty reports directly to the President and manages seventeen direct reports overseeing the divisions of Academic Planning and International Study, Faculty Development, First-Year Programs, Institutional Research and Assessment, and Academic Support, as well the Library, Information Technology, the Writing Program, the Whittier Scholars Program, the Center for Engagement with Communities, Title V, Disabilities Services, Registrar and the Broadoaks Children’s School. 

The next Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty will have an exceptional leadership opportunity to partner with faculty to shape a new and dynamic academic vision for the College. As the chief academic officer of a vibrant and diverse private liberal arts college with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary and experiential learning, service and leadership, the VPAA/DOF will drive teaching, learning and innovation in an effort to prepare a multicultural student body for future leadership opportunities that make a positive impact on society and the world. The next VPAA/DOF will collaborate with the President, senior leadership, the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff and students to develop a shared academic vision that is in synergy with the current ongoing development of the College’s strategic plan and curriculum visioning exercise. The VPAA/DOF will have the opportunity to leverage Whittier’s unique identity as one of the most diverse four-year liberal arts institutions in the country, and position it as a national model for the future.

As one academic voice of many, the VPAA/DOF will be responsible for supporting the development and implementation of a new curriculum; advocating on behalf of a committed and dedicated faculty while considering the strategic objectives and vision of the president and Board; focusing on student success and outcomes of a student body that is overwhelmingly students of color; demonstrating actions and behaviors that make diversity and inclusion a high priority; supporting a culture of partnership, teamwork and collaboration in a consensus-driven decision-making environment; and maintaining a deep knowledge and understanding of current higher education trends and the future of private liberal arts education.

The incoming Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty should be an inspirational, entrepreneurial leader and an active listener with the ability to work productively across campus with faculty, staff, administrators and students. The VPAA/DOF should have an impressive track record of leadership experience within a private liberal arts institution or equivalent organizational environment. A background in the areas of finance and budget management, curriculum review and implementation, building strong, collaborative and productive relationships with both internal and external constituent groups, and working across divisions to support teaching, research and service is preferred. Finally, success in this role requires a clear understanding of, affinity for and commitment to the mission of Whittier College. For more information, please visit www.wittkieffer.com.

Inquiries, nominations and applications are invited. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by November 27. Candidates should provide, as three separate documents, a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the leadership profile, and the names and contact information of five references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates. These materials should be sent electronically via e-mail to the Whittier College’s consultants Zachary A.
