VICE PROVOST FOR GRADUATE EDUCATION AND DEAN OF THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) invites applications and nominations for the position of Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Dean of the Graduate School. Reporting directly to the Executive Vice President and Provost of the University, the Vice Provost and Dean serves as the principal academic and administrative officer of the School.

Penn State educates more than 90,000 students at its 25 campuses, including 24 throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the University's online World Campus. The Graduate School, established in 1922, is one of the nation's largest, with more than 14,000 graduate students enrolled in residence at University Park; Penn State Harrisburg, the Capital College; Penn State Erie, The Behrend College; the Great Valley School of Graduate Professional Studies; the College of Medicine, and through Penn State's World Campus. International enrollment has increased to more than 2,700 students, and the Graduate School has a strategic priority to increase the enrollment and retention of underrepresented graduate students.

Penn State offers more than 198 graduate fields of study, with 93 research doctorates (Ph.D.), seven professional doctorates (D.Ed., D.M.A., D.N.P., and Dr.P.H.),108 research master's degrees (M.A. and M.S.), and a growing portfolio (currently 97) of professional master's degree programs. Graduate faculty across all graduate degree programs exceeds 3,100. The Graduate School is responsible for overseeing the admission, matriculation, and graduation of all graduate students across the University, excluding professional students in the College of Medicine, Dickinson Law, and Penn State Law; maintains academic standards and adherence to academic and administrative policies related to graduate education; promotes and provides professional development opportunities for graduate students; and promulgates best practices for graduate faculty to augment the efforts of graduate programs and colleges. Additionally, the Graduate School has awarded 129,809 graduate degrees to date and more than 121,000 living graduate alumni.

The Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Dean of the Graduate School oversees a base budget of over $21 million in General Funds, an operating budget of $5 million; and $15 million in student aid funding, and a staff of approximately 50 FTE (full-time equivalent). This position requires a commitment to working collaboratively on philanthropic efforts in support of graduate students.

This position provides visionary leadership to a multi-campus academic unit in a multidisciplinary and highly inter-disciplinary research university. The successful candidate must have a record of leadership in graduate education; prior leadership experience with responsibility for strategic management of personnel, programs, and resources; a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; and a scholarly record appropriate for a tenured appointment at the rank of professor. The successful candidate should have the ability to inspire graduate students to expand their knowledge and understanding of their impact in a multicultural, global society; a commitment to high-quality disciplinary and interdisciplinary graduate education; and familiarity with national issues affecting graduate education. Experience in fund-raising to obtain external support for large projects is desirable. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
