Georgetown University: Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

Georgetown University invites inquiries, nominations and applications for the position of Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.  Georgetown is one of the world’s most highly regarded universities, offering a unique educational experience that prepares the next generation of global citizens to make a difference in the world.  Founded in 1820 and among the oldest graduate schools in the United States, Georgetown’s Graduate School engages all parts of the University--Arts and Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Law, Foreign Service, and Business.  It offers Ph.D., professional doctorate and master’s programs, as well as dual and joint-degree programs, in over 50 disciplinary areas. The Dean will have the opportunity to articulate a vision for the Graduate School that encompasses this intellectual and academic breadth.


Georgetown is at a transformational moment with a variety of new institutional initiatives.  Provost Robert Groves, appointed in summer 2012, is leading the reconfiguration of many academic units and programs, including restructuring the Graduate School.  The new structure builds on past successes and seeks to make the Graduate School a leader in 21st-century graduate education.  The process is taking shape through extensive consultation with faculty, staff and students -- reflected in the Provost’s blog https://blog.provost.georgetown.edu/. 


The Graduate School Dean will have several key roles, including serving as a catalyst for new interdisciplinary graduate programs, which will be a signature focus of the Graduate School.  The Dean will lead the effort to find new common intellectual ground among faculty across Georgetown’s several schools and to identify opportunities for new Masters-level and Ph.D. programs.  The role of the Dean also includes leading the University in strengthening the process for graduate program review, and providing recommendations on tenure and promotion of faculty.  The Dean is responsible for overseeing the recruitment, admissions, financial support, and academic training of more than 7,000 graduate students.  The Dean of the Graduate School reports directly to the Provost.  


The ideal candidate for this position will have deep academic experience in graduate education, strong scholarly or scientific credentials, leadership skills appropriate to the challenges and opportunities of this role, and the personal qualities necessary to flourish within a collegial environment. Those interested in the position should review the Leadership Statement for this search, available at www.wittkieffer.com, as well as the University’s website www.georgetown.edu.


Review of applications will begin on November 15, and will continue until the position is filled.  For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by November 30.  Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the Leadership Statement, and the names and contact information of five references.  Candidate confidentiality will be respected and references will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates.  Materials should be sent electronically via e-mail to the University’s consultants, Jean Dowdall, PhD, and Elizabeth Bohan, at GUGradDean@wittkieffer.com.  Questions may be directed to the consultants through the office of Donna Janulis at 630-575-6131.

Santa Clara University



Dean, College of Arts and Sciences

The Opportunity:

Santa Clara University (SCU), a comprehensive Jesuit, Catholic university located in California's Silicon Valley, is entering an ambitious period of growth and expansion across multiple fronts and has developed a bold new vision and integrated strategic plan, Santa Clara 2020. The University is launching new interdisciplinary initiatives, promoting technology-enhanced teaching methods and building facilities that respond to the changing landscape of higher education, our increasingly technological society, and an innovative approach to liberal arts education.

The Role of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences

The Dean is the chief academic and administrative officer of the College and reports to the University Provost, Dr. Dennis Jacobs. The Dean is part of the Provost’s Council of Deans and a member of the University’s Planning Action Council. The Dean’s responsibilities include:

• Leadership: Providing overall academic, administrative, and financial leadership and strategic vision for the College while strengthening programs and infrastructure of all disciplines in Arts and Sciences
• Management and administration: Overseeing the ongoing operations of the College enterprise, including curriculum development and delivery; teaching and learning; assessment and accreditation; faculty recruitment, retention, development, and promotion; student recruitment and advising; budgeting, facility and equipment planning and allocation; fundraising and communication, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
• Faculty development and involvement: Professional development and support of the faculty, and leadership development among department chairs and other personnel; promoting faculty participation in integrated educational initiatives, such as the Center for Arts and Humanities, SCU Presents, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, as well as University initiatives like residential learning communities and cross-disciplinary Centers of Distinction
• Enhancing quality: Supporting and enriching high quality educational programs, teaching, and service activities of the faculty; providing an environment that fosters faculty commitment to teaching, scholarship or creative activity, and service
• Shared governance: Actively engaging in and promoting shared governance and shared responsibility with faculty, staff, and University leaders
• Diversity and inclusion: Promoting a culture of acceptance, tolerance, and inclusion while also building a more diverse community in all of its forms
• Fundraising and external engagement: Assembling the resources essential to support the academic mission of the College while working closely with the Director of External Relations, the Leadership Board, and community leaders
• University leadership: Serving as a collaborative and transparent member of the University’s senior leadership team while effectively representing the College and integrating it within the University and beyond
• Mission and service: Articulating a vision for the College that will build upon the Jesuit tradition of education as a service to society and that will promote the reputation and values of the College of Arts and Sciences and Santa Clara University.

Direct Reports to the Dean

The Dean oversees the chairs and directors of 24 academic departments and programs offering 36 majors, as well as the directors of eight interdisciplinary minor programs. The Dean also manages three Associate Deans whose responsibilities generally include the management of the 24 academic departments and programs as well as other initiatives, such as academic integrity, student complaints, program review and assessment. The Dean supervises a Senior Assistant Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Dean, an Assistant Dean and a Director of External Relations who is responsible for special projects, fundraising, communications, alumni relations, and donor stewardship.

The College budget for fiscal year 2013-2014 was approximately $45.7 million, for which nearly $10 million were dedicated to benefits. Faculty salaries, excluding benefits, are budgeted at $28.5 million, while staff salaries are approximately $3 million.

Opportunities and Expectations for Leadership

In collaboration with faculty and other campus leaders, the next Dean will have an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of the College and also integrate the College across other academic disciplines and professions, including engineering, business, and law. The Dean will want to focus attention on the following areas:

Shape the Future of the College

The Dean will provide strategic vision for the future of the liberal arts within a Jesuit institution and make the case for its mission and value on campus, in the Silicon Valley region, and beyond. There are new initiatives and programs that are underway, such as the new Art and Art History Building and a proposed STEM Complex (see below), and the Dean will play a role in re-imagining the liberal arts, such as through the development of the digital humanities and visualization capabilities of the arts and humanities. The next Dean will contribute to advancing experiential, community-based, and technology-enhanced teaching and learning.

Faculty Recruitment, Retention, and Development of Teaching Scholars

The Dean will be responsible for continuing to recruit and retain high quality teaching scholars as well as diversifying the faculty across the arts and sciences. In developing the faculty in all disciplines, the Dean will work with the administration and the faculty to explore ways to find balance among the pedagogical, scholarly and service roles of the faculty. In particular, the Dean will need to find creative ways of mentoring and supporting the scholarship or creative activity of Assistant and Associate Professors in preparation for promotion to Full Professor. The Dean will also need to find the appropriate balance between tenure stream, continuing non-tenure track, and adjunct faculty.

Maintain a Highly Functioning Administrative Team

A strong administrative team is essential to support the work of the Dean and the work of the faculty. A significant share of the Dean’s responsibilities will be external, working with the Leadership Board, donors, alumni, and community leaders. As such, the Dean will need to ensure that the College’s administrative structure will support faculty teaching, research, and creative activity, while also allowing her or him to attend to the important task of securing philanthropic support to realize the goals of the College. The Dean will develop the leadership potential and administrative skills of the personnel of the Dean’s Office as well as department chairs and program directors.

Build Philanthropic Support and External Relations

The Dean will work with the Director of External Relations, the College’s Leadership Board, faculty, alumni, and the community to raise resources and to further the strategic goals of the College. The Dean must be imaginative, passionate, and entrepreneurial in engaging the communities of Santa Clara, Silicon Valley, and beyond to understand the value of a liberal arts education and the unique mission of the University. The Dean must ensure that donors are aware of faculty and student accomplishments as well as College priorities as a context for fundraising. The ability to work effectively and collaboratively with boards and community leaders will be essential to success in this role.

Build Shared Governance, Community, and Collaboration

The Dean will work with the faculty to build shared governance and shared responsibility structures that empower faculty participation and creativity in the University’s overall leadership. The Dean will help promote a culture of engagement, cooperation, and esprit de corps. He or she will build relationships, communication, and trust.

Set Priorities and Manage Resources

The Dean will work with the faculty and staff to identify priorities and to develop and allocate resources to support the mission and success of the College. The Dean must be astute in understanding the University’s financial management structures to assure that the College is well positioned to garner the resources it needs. The Dean will be a strategic thinker, able to continue nourishing longstanding elements of the programs and activities of Arts and Sciences, while shifting or allocating resources to nurture emerging projects and programs that hold great promise for the future. Priorities should be developed from broad consultation among the faculty and staff and shepherded with transparency and evenhandedness. The new Dean will need to address the competitiveness of faculty salaries, the cost of housing, and methods to secure start-up support to enable successful recruitment and retention.

Collaborative Relationships with University Leadership and Strategic Planning

The Dean must work closely and effectively with the other Deans and the central administration to fulfill the strategic goals of the University. The Dean will provide leadership in strategic planning, direction setting and policy development for the College within the context of the University’s strategic plan, Santa Clara 2020 (www.scu.edu/santaclara2020/), and Santa Clara’s Jesuit and Catholic character and mission. The next Dean will have a unique opportunity to work with faculty and stakeholders to develop a new strategic plan for the College that more fully articulates the College’s goals in a manner that complements the University plan.

Professional Qualifications and Personal Qualities

Imagining the future of the College Arts and Sciences requires a leader with many academic credentials, leadership abilities and interpersonal skills. The ideal candidate will possess the following professional qualifications and personal qualities:

• Academic accomplishments: Distinguished scholarly reputation and strong record of academic and teaching accomplishment commensurate with appointment to the deanship, including an earned doctorate (or terminal degree) in a discipline appropriate to the College and holding a tenured professorship in one or more of the departments of within the College of Arts and Sciences or the University
