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.

State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry
Provost
Syracuse New York

The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF or the College), the jewel in the crown of the State University of New York (SUNY) System, welcomes nominations and applications for the position of Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. Among the world’s colleges and universities, ESF is unique in its holistic focus on the environment and in the breadth and depth of its expertise in the science, design, engineering, conservation, and management of natural resources. Located in Syracuse, nestled along the northeastern edge of the beautiful Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, all that ESF is and does serves its mission of achieving a sustainable world.

The College seeks an individual with the experience, dedication, and breadth of vision to serve as the chief academic officer for one of the nation’s leading doctoral-granting institutions. This position reports directly to President Joanie Mahoney, leads the faculty and academic-facing staff in implementing the institution’s goals, is part of the President’s collaborative leadership executive cabinet, brings fresh ideas and perspectives to improve programs, enhances the College’s academic reputation, and strengthens contributions to global environmental and sustainable resource design, management, research, and stewardship. The successful candidate will join a college leadership team implementing priorities to position ESF for success in its second century.

The next Provost at ESF will provide leadership for the academic program at a historic college with enormous potential. Given the urgency surrounding issues related to the environment including climate change and planetary health, ESF is uniquely positioned as an academic institution to lead the way into the future. At the highest level, the Provost ensures that ESF's academic programs and related services embody standards of excellence, achieve strategic goals, satisfy accreditation and governmental regulations and requirements, and fulfill the institution’s environmental mission. Like with many higher education institutions across the country, ESF is at a critical financial crossroads. The new Provost will be expected to exhibit strong leadership during difficult financial times and act with transparency to the benefit of all College stakeholders.

The next ESF Provost should possess a firm commitment to academic excellence, the ability to work constructively and collaboratively with multiple constituencies through a model of shared governance, and a proven ability to translate ideas and visions into action. The College recognizes that higher education is undergoing a significant transformation. This is especially true when considering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This changing reality requires that ESF’s next Provost embrace a creative, nimble, and expansive leadership approach that allows for the opportunity to go beyond traditional academic stewardship.
ESF has increased focus on accelerating diversity within the faculty ranks and student body, increasing student retention, and creatively fostering new program funding, and revenue development. This reflects ESF’s growing need to distinguish itself for potential students, donors and strategic partners, and recognizes there are increasing numbers of academic institutions effectively moving into many of the academic spaces ESF occupies. In its next Provost, ESF seeks deep management experience, the demonstrated ability to facilitate change in an organization and a robust scholarly record sufficient to warrant appointment as a full, tenured professor.

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

Designated a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) in 2013, Humboldt State University is also a Minority-Serving Institution (MSI) with a thriving community composed of 500 faculty and over 5,800 students at this northern-most campus of the 23-campus California State University system. Humboldt State is surrounded by one of the most beautiful natural environments in the world and sits in the northwestern portion of Wiyot ancestral territory, a connection it both values and honors.

Reporting to the provost and vice president for academic affairs, the dean is the senior administrative officer of CAHSS and provides strategic direction, vision, and leadership for its academic departments and programs. The dean serves as a strong advocate for the College, both within the University and with external business and civic and academic communities.

Successful candidates will demonstrate the ability to advocate for the arts, humanities, and social sciences; a history and commitment to shared governance and the ability to earn the trust of faculty, students, staff, and administration; evidence of their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion — such as building partnerships that foster inclusive excellence and initiatives that create pathways to access and success for underrepresented groups; and success in strategic planning, fiscal management, and personnel management.

The preferred candidate must have an earned doctorate or comparable terminal degree in one of the disciplines in the College and credentials suitable for a tenured appointment at the rank of professor within the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

Applicant materials should be received by October 25, 2021.

Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs  
  Posted Monday, September 27, 2021
 

California State University, East Bay (Cal State East Bay) seeks an experienced, collaborative leader with a deep commitment to students and their success to serve as its next provost and vice president for academic affairs (provost).

Cal State East Bay is recognized as a regionally engaged and globally oriented university with a strong commitment to academic innovation, faculty and student research, student success, community focused service learning, diversity and sustainability. Founded in 1957, Cal State East Bay is one of 23 universities of the California State University (CSU) system. Cal State East Bay’s beautiful main campus is located in the Hayward Hills with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay shoreline. Situated above the city of Hayward, the university offers an ideal setting for teaching and learning with easy access to the many cities in the Bay Area. The university, with a student population of nearly 15,000 students, has a satellite campus in Concord, a professional development center in Oakland and a significant presence online. The university’s students arrive predominantly from Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, and over 60 percent are the first in their families to go to college. Cal State East Bay‘s four colleges, including Business and Economics; Education and Allied Studies; Letters, Arts and Social Sciences; and Science, offer a total of 48 bachelor's degrees, 56 minors, 23 credentials and certificates, 34 master’s degrees, a doctorate in Educational Leadership and five subject matter preparation programs. The university strives to meet the educational needs of and contribute to the vitality of the East Bay, the state, the nation and global communities.

Reporting directly to the president and serving on her senior leadership team, the incoming provost will provide strong leadership and vision for the academic community, working in close partnership to develop innovative strategies that help address many of the campus's most pressing challenges. Operating within a robust shared governance environment, the incoming provost will be expected to strengthen and expand student success initiatives – particularly those that have the biggest impact on underrepresented minority students – and enrollment strategies that support CSU's Graduation Initiative 2025. Furthermore, the next provost should demonstrate and embody values that are aligned with Cal State East Bay's commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and justice, and provide support to deans and other academic leaders related to diverse faculty hiring and improving student success for underrepresented minority populations, among other key initiatives. The provost should also be a champion of faculty and the overall academic mission of the campus, and help generate and appropriately manage resources to help the academic community be successful.

The incoming provost should be an engaged and team-focused leader with a demonstrated commitment to faculty excellence and the needs of twenty-first century students. The provost should possess senior administrative experience at a comprehensive, public university. A deep background in fiscal and budget management will be important, as well as experience in generating new revenue streams through external sources. Experience managing an academic enterprise within a strong shared governance and union environment is critical, while balancing the needs and interests of faculty with the realities of administering a complex, public institution that is part of a 23-campus system. The provost should be committed to supporting the development of existing faculty while maintaining a laser focus on recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty cohort. Strong communication and listening skills are essential. Candidates should have an earned doctorate (or equivalent) and academic record to warrant appointment at the rank of full professor at Cal State East Bay.

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.

Saint Vincent College is a Catholic, Benedictine liberal arts college located in Latrobe Pennsylvania that was founded and has been continuously enriched by the co-location of the Saint Vincent Archabbey and Monastery, the oldest Benedictine monastery in the United States and the largest in the Western Hemisphere.

Founded in 1846 as the nation's first Benedictine college, Saint Vincent College ranks as a first-tier National Liberal Arts College (US News and World Report). With a 2020 enrollment of approximately 1,560 students, including an incoming freshman class of 360 with an average 3.66 high school GPA, Saint Vincent offers over 50 different majors and more than 50 different social, political, recreational services and religious organizations on campus.

The VPAA will lead and motivate the faculty around the changing needs of students, now and in the coming decades, and reorient the curriculum accordingly in an interdisciplinary fashion to meet these changes without compromising the fundamental Benedictine tradition and values that have defined a Saint Vincent education for over 175 years.

The successful candidate will be a communicative, engaging, transparent and mission-driven leader with a demonstrated commitment to faculty excellence and student success.  The VPAA will also ensure a robust and compelling academic program that is made complete by a comprehensive learning outcomes assessment schema. The new vice president for academic affairs will possess the many key attributes necessary to lead the institution through change, including the ability to inspire and instill optimism and confidence; a dedication to a strong core liberal arts curriculum integrated with high quality academic programs; a commitment to increasing diversity, equity and inclusion across the campus community; a propensity for data-driven decision making; and outstanding communication skills.
