An Invitation to Apply for the Position of
DEAN OF THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
The University of Scranton
The University of Scranton, a private, Catholic, and Jesuit institution, seeks an innovative and collaborative leader for its next Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). The University of Scranton is a close-knit community, deeply committed to its Catholic and Jesuit mission. At Scranton, the Jesuit ideals are not only understood, they are lived. University faculty and staff work tirelessly to provide a deep, purposeful education to students to ensure that they have a transformative experience during their years at Scranton. From the classroom to the far reaches of the globe, students learn what it means to care for others. As people devoted to the Jesuit maxim of Cura Personalis – individual attention to students and respect for the uniqueness of each member of the University community – they go on to effect change in the world. The University of Scranton community takes pride in the well-rounded individuals students become and has faith that they will “go forth and set the world on fire.”
The next Dean of the CAS will join the university and the provost’s academic leadership team to bring creative leadership and growth to an eager and engaged community. With the recent installation of its 29th president, Joseph G. Marina, S.J., and Provost Michelle Maldonado, the University of Scranton is energized and poised to take on the challenges facing higher education today and in the future. A highly committed and collaborative faculty and staff await the new Dean, with opportunities to work together to ensure that academic opportunities and student support are mission-focused. The next Dean will lead the largest college on campus and will work closely with the Provost, faculty, and staff to implement a new core curriculum and to ensure the College’s programs, enrollment, and initiatives are aligned with the institution’s strategic plan.
The ideal candidate will be a strategic thinker and have a commitment to Arts and Sciences with the ability to lead the CAS, serving as an advocate for the values rooted in the mission of the University of Scranton and have an appreciation for the Jesuit education tradition. The next Dean will bring a Ph.D. or terminal degree in a discipline appropriate to the college; extensive academic, administrative leadership; the ability to engage others in developing and implementing academic vision; a commitment to shared governance; and demonstrated success with diversity, equity and inclusion efforts. The University seeks a leader who will partner with the Provost and the faculty to develop and launch innovative programs of outstanding quality for graduate and non-traditional students, as well as strengthen retention efforts and foster a more transfer-friendly culture within the College. The Dean will have astute financial management skills and a proven capacity to inspire and engage faculty, students, staff, and alumni.
