University of Louisville
Dean, College of Arts and Sciences  
  Posted Tuesday, January 28, 2020
 

The University of Louisville (UofL) is seeking a visionary, collaborative, and strategic leader to serve as the next Dean of its largest academic unit, the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S). This is an exciting opportunity for a distinguished scholar and accomplished administrator to guide the College forward at a time of tremendous promise.

Reporting to the Executive Vice President and University Provost, the Dean serves as the chief academic officer for the College, providing leadership for its approximately 8,000 undergraduate students, 700 graduate students, 641 full and part-time faculty, and 155 full and part-time staff. More specifically, the Dean is tasked with overseeing the College’s planning and operation, and will be responsible for executing a strategy to ensure that its educational excellence, research productivity, connections to the wider community, and national reputation continue to improve.

Founded in 1907, the College of Arts & Sciences has a storied history of education in the liberal arts and sciences. Through cutting-edge methodologies, innovative research and creative activities, engaged teaching using 21st Century tools, and rigorous scholarship, A&S is advancing knowledge and preparing the next generation of leaders, thinkers, dreamers, and doers. Instructing nearly half of the student body at UofL, the College of Arts and Sciences offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. A&S has over 90 degree programs, including 42 major degrees and concentrations, 13 doctoral programs, and 22 master’s programs. In addition to housing 22 departments in more than 20 buildings across Belknap Campus, A&S is the home of the Military Science program (Army ROTC), the Aerospace program (Air Force ROTC), the University Honors program, the University Writing Center, and many other assets that benefit the University, the community, and the globe. 76% of all of UofL’s student Fulbright Awards since 2000 have gone to A&S majors. The College of Arts and Sciences is closely connected to the city of Louisville, a thriving metropolitan city boasting both Midwestern sensibility and Southern charm.

The next Dean will lead a diverse and well-respected college with a first-class faculty, dedicated staff, and intellectually curious student body. While operating from a position of great strength, due in part to new and exciting leadership that is transforming the strategic vision, climate, and day-to-day operations of the University as a whole, the Dean of A&S will nevertheless confront a set of challenges that come with the breadth of a college of its size. As such, the Dean will be expected to articulate and execute a coherent vision for the future of the College of Arts and Sciences; bolster its financial standing through development, programmatic growth, and funded research; provide robust support for staff and faculty; and prioritize diversity and inclusion across the College, while strengthening internal and external partnerships.  Building on past success, the Dean will be poised to position the College at the forefront of liberal arts education and novel research.

The University of Louisville has retained Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm, to assist the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Search Committee in its identification and review of candidates. Inquiries, referrals, and resumes accompanied by a cover letter will be held in strict confidence and should be sent electronically to Dan Rodas, Dave Ferguson, and Kaleigh Hoffman at:
