ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
I am pleased to announce the search committee to identify candidates for the position of Vice Chancellor–Student Affairs. Gabriele Wienhausen, Provost of Sixth College, and I will co-chair the search. Other members of the Search Committee are:
NEETU BALRAM, Associated Students Representative
The successful candidate will be an experienced student affairs leader with a demonstrated record of achievement, particularly in the area of improving student life and the student experience. We are seeking an accomplished administrator who has demonstrated knowledge and experience in strategic planning, management of change and administration of fiscal, physical and human resources. The Vice Chancellor needs strong communication skills and a record of commitment to shared governance. He/she must have a proven ability to work with a diverse faculty, staff and student body, and with all members of the academic and campus-wide communities. The best candidates will have a commitment to and a demonstrated record of success in achieving institutional goals that facilitate the removal of barriers to the recruitment, retention, and advancement of talented students, faculty and staff from historically excluded populations who are currently underrepresented. We seek an innovative leader with significant experience in establishing collaborative initiatives that bring students, administrators, faculty and staff from multiple departments together to creatively study and identify avenues to address issues. The VCSA will have an established record of active participation to assist the institution in achieving its fundraising goals.
I invite you to submit nominations in confidence to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), co-chair Wienhausen (email@example.com) or managing director Albert Pimentel of Edward W. Kelley & Partners (Alberto.Pimentel@wekp.com).
