KEY ADMINISTRATORS/KEY SUPPORT STAFF
A national search for the new Dean of the Division of Arts and Humanities is now commencing, and I am pleased to invite applications and nominations for this position.
The Dean of Arts and Humanities is the academic and administrative leader of the Arts and Humanities Division; the Division includes the departments of History, Literature, Philosophy, Music, Theatre and Dance, and Visual Arts. As a key member of the University's leadership, the Dean reports directly to the Senior Vice Chancellor-Academic Affairs and represents the Division at the campus, local, state, national, and international levels. The Dean plays a leadership role in the Division's cross-disciplinary collaborations with other divisions and schools throughout the campus.
Successful candidates should have prior experience in academic administration (preferably including a term as department chair) and must have a distinguished record of scholarship, teaching, and service appropriate for appointment as a tenured senior professor in the Division. The Dean will be appointed to serve at 100% time for a five-year term, renewable following appropriate review.
The membership of the Search Committee, which will be chaired by Professor John Wixted, Chair of the Department of Psychology, is given below. The Russell Reynolds Associates search firm has been engaged to assist with this important recruitment, and all candidate materials will be sent directly to the firm.
Candidates are encouraged to submit their materials by September 24, 2007 for full consideration. The Search Committee will continue reviewing candidate files until the position is filled. Nominations and applications (curriculum vitae, an optional statement of interest, e-mail address, and names of references) should be submitted electronically (Microsoft Word files preferred), in confidence, to Search Committee Chair John Wixted, c/o:
Dr. Ilene H. Nagel
