Penn State University invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, a senior-level leader who reports to the Executive Vice President and Provost. The successful candidate will be a highly visible academic administrator responsible for overseeing the many facets of faculty affairs at all University locations. The Vice Provost is a member of the President's Council and Academic Leadership Council and works closely with deans, campus chancellors, department heads, faculty committees, and University general counsel in fulfilling the position's broad responsibilities.
Primary among the Vice Provost's responsibilities is overseeing the University's promotion and tenure review process, sabbatical leave requests, and mandated periodic academic administrative evaluations of deans and other individuals who report to the Provost. In addition, on behalf of the Office of the President, the Vice Provost manages executive searches for positions that report directly to the Provost. The Vice Provost also serves as a liaison to the University Faculty Senate in several capacities. These include representing the Provost on the Committee on Faculty Affairs and serving as a liaison to the Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Committee, assisting the Provost and President in responding to recommendations from the committee as a result of petitions that have come before it. The Vice Provost also oversees several leadership and faculty development activities. These include the Academic Leadership Forum (a series of seminars providing opportunities for leadership development to department heads and other academic administrators) and two leadership programs sponsored by the Big Ten Academic Alliance (serving as Penn State's liaison to the BTAA's Academic Leadership Program and Department Executive Officer seminars).
Other responsibilities include overseeing orientation sessions for new faculty, department heads, and other academic administrators. The Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs also oversees the selection processes for the President's Award for Excellence in Academic Integration, the Penn State Laureate, and the Administrative Fellows Program. The successful candidate also will be highly responsive to new roles and responsibilities as they emerge.
Candidates for this position should possess credentials appropriate for a tenured appointment at the rank of professor and a record of outstanding achievement and commitment to teaching, research, and service. The successful candidate will have experience as an effective and recognized leader, the skills necessary to hold a significant leadership position in a multifaceted and complex organization, and a broad base of knowledge of the University's mission, vision, values, and academic policies and procedures. Essential personal characteristics include high energy, sound judgment and integrity, the capacity and eagerness to work collaboratively, and the ability to address and resolve problems.
Candidates should have at least 10 years of relevant experience in positions with increasing levels of responsibility and leadership. Experience working in a university similar in size and scope to Penn State is also essential.
