Westminster College invites applications for the key leadership position of Associate Provost for Diversity and Global Learning. We define Diversity and Global Learning as two distinctive priorities in the strategic plans of the College, and seek applicants with expertise in both areas. Following a decade of significant growth in our commitment to Diversity and Global Learning, we seek applicants with a record of demonstrated accomplishment to provide leadership as we set new goals and higher standards of excellence. |
Applicants should demonstrate success in advocating on behalf of groups historically underrepresented in higher education (such as people of color, LGBT people, people with disabilities, first-generation college students, and others), as well as promoting internationalization of the College (including international students, study abroad, faculty exchanges, and international partnerships). Westminster College acknowledges that there is often significant overlap among these groups and priorities, and also strategic importance in defining them each separately.
Westminster College’s commitment to diversity and global learning is revealed in its core values, mission and vision statements, and learning goals. We seek candidates with proven skills relevant to accomplishing these objectives:
Enrich and Broaden the Curriculum and Co-Curriculum to Include International and Domestic Diversity Perspectives and Experiences
Increase the Recruitment and Retention of International and Historically Under-represented Students, Faculty, and Staff
Provide Faculty and Staff Professional Development Opportunities Related to Diversity and Global Consciousness
This position reports directly to the Provost and carries faculty rank. Direct reports include the Director of Diversity Student Affairs and the Director of Student International Services . The Associate Provost will collaborate with two Faculty Fellows (one focused on diversity and one focused on internationalization/global learning). In addition, the Associate Provost will work closely with and be an active member of the Diversity Council, the International Council, the extended Dean’s Council, and other related constituencies of the College. This position includes the possibility of limited teaching each year.
The successful candidate will possess an earned Ph.D. and minimum of five years of full-time, professional experience in higher education, administrative skills, successful curriculum development experience, the ability to develop community, national and international partnerships, knowledge of best practices for diversity and global learning in higher education, and an understanding of how higher education can flourish in an institution that values the liberal arts and sciences, professional education, and graduate studies.
