Dean, Arts & Humanities Division  
  Posted Monday, July 27, 2020

The University of California, Berkeley, seeks a collaborative leader, accomplished scholar, and persuasive advocate for the arts and humanities to serve as the next Dean of the Arts & Humanities Division in the College of Letters & Science.

UC Berkeley is internationally renowned for its comprehensive research excellence and for the opportunities it affords students of all backgrounds.  The Berkeley campus is home to more than 31,000 undergraduates and 11,000 graduate students.  It has over 1,500 ladder-rank faculty across 14 schools and colleges.  Located near San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the campus sits at the epicenter of imagination and invention.

Faculty and students in the Arts & Humanities Division of the College of Letters & Science explore the human experience across an exceptionally broad range of subjects.  With 31 undergraduate majors and 22 graduate programs in 19 departments, the Division offers students opportunities to study and make art; learn about a wide range of civilizations, languages, literatures, and cultures; and explore ideas in philosophy, rhetoric, religion, and history.  The Division prides itself on the way it integrates the practice and study of the arts, and it offers the broadest range of languages taught at any university in the country.

UC Berkeley is ranked among the top four universities in the world for its programs in the arts and humanities, which prepare students for citizenship in a rapidly changing world and for leadership in fields that value skillful communication, critical and creative thinking, and cross-cultural knowledge.  More fundamentally, the Division brings faculty and students together to pursue questions about how human beings can lead meaningful lives. In annual surveys of student satisfaction, the programs in the Division are consistently rated the best at Berkeley.

Berkeley seeks a Dean committed to supporting the Division’s array of exceptional departments, disciplines, and academic cultures.  The next Dean will work with faculty to articulate a vision for the contributions the Division will make to Berkeley’s fulfillment of its public mission. The Dean will advocate persuasively for the Division’s programs both within and beyond the campus community. The Dean will manage resources thoughtfully and will work with campus partners, alumni, donors, and foundations to increase philanthropic support for the Division’s faculty, programs, and students.  The Dean will be committed to building a community whose members advance equity, diversity, and inclusion.  As the leader of a Division within the College of Letters & Science — the largest by far of the campus’s colleges — the new Dean will have the opportunity to collaborate on college-wide initiatives with Deans of the Divisions of biological sciences, mathematical and physical sciences, social sciences, and undergraduate studies.

The successful candidate must have an earned terminal degree by the time of application in a discipline within the arts or humanities and will have a record of scholarship or creative achievement that merits a tenured appointment at Berkeley with the rank of full professor.  The Dean will have experience as an academic leader, for example, as a department chair, institute director, or academic administrator, and will have participated in the processes of faculty appointment and promotion.  The Dean will have a record of advancing institutional equity, diversity, and inclusion.  The Dean will have experience with alumni and donor relations or have clear potential for strength in those areas. The successful candidate will understand the distinctive character and mission of a public university and will have a record of fruitful collaborative efforts to build consensus.
