Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs
The University of North Dakota invites applications and nominations for the position of Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The University of North Dakota, one of the nation's premier regional public research universities, is at an exciting crossroads in its 129-year history. Major growth and positive change are the hallmarks of this new era – research funding has expanded and is now more than $100 million annually; enrollment has increased to over 14,500 students; and, a $300 million capital campaign is well on its way to successful conclusion. In addition, an award winning "Essential Studies" program has recently been put in place and the University has established the "Exceptional UND Strategic Priorities" as the five pillars of the University's plan.
Reporting directly to the President, the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs is the chief academic officer of the University and stands at the epicenter of the ongoing programmatic and curricular innovation at the University. UND seeks a dynamic and visionary leader who will build upon the institution's strengths to provide exceptional undergraduate, graduate, and professional educational experiences, recruit and develop outstanding faculty, enhance the academic and cultural experience at UND and for the state, and, promote faculty-driven scholarly and creative endeavors.
The next Provost will be a committed team player who is devoted to excellence and shared governance. The selected individual will be a consultative decision-maker and will work collaboratively with faculty, staff, students, and administrators. The Provost will have unquestioned integrity, exemplary interpersonal and communication skills, and common sense.
While applications and nominations will be accepted until a new Provost is selected, interested parties are encouraged to submit their materials to our consultant by September 1 to assure optimal consideration.
