Dean/VPAA Search: Call for Nominations
We interrupt your last days of summer break to make a formal call for nominations for the position of Dean of the College and Vice President for Academic Affairs (Dean/VPAA). Attached you can find the Leadership Profile and Position Description, which the Dean/VPAA Search Committee completed this summer. Recruitment ads have been placed in a broad range of national outlets and our executive search consultants at Witt/Kieffer have already begun fielding multiple inquiries. Many of you have also begun preliminary conversations with potential candidates, too, and we thank you for your recruitment efforts!
We invite and encourage you to nominate colleagues whom you believe would be strong candidates. You can submit nominations directly to our search consultants Oliver Tomlin and Jennifer Bauer at OXYDeanVPAA@wittkieffer.com by Friday, September 9. Oliver and Jennifer need only the name of the individual you wish to nominate and her/his current institution. They will contact all qualified nominees to familiarize them with this leadership opportunity.
At the beginning of the semester we will conduct an online survey and host a series of discussion forums in order to gain a better understanding of your priorities for this important position. We will share more info through plenty of e-announcements and reminders throughout the semester. If you have any questions now or at any time during the search process, please feel free to contact us.
