Position Description

Founded in 1885, Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the nation’s premier research universities. The Institute consistently ranks among U.S. News & World Report’s Top Ten public universities. Comprised of six colleges—Architecture, Engineering, Sciences, Computing, Business, and Liberal Arts, Georgia Tech enrolls over 25,000 academically talented undergraduate and graduate students, and is rated among the top universities in the nation for graduation of underrepresented minorities in engineering, computer science, and mathematics. The Georgia Tech campus occupies 400 acres in the heart of the vibrant city of Atlanta, which is well-known for its excellent quality of life. Innovative in its outlook, Georgia Tech is committed to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology.

 

Reporting to the Associate Vice President for Campus Services, the Assistant Vice President of Housing provides the strategic vision and administrative leadership for a large, comprehensive housing and residence life program serving approximately 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The Assistant Vice President plans, directs, and coordinates all facets of the department including facilities, residence life programs, administration/occupancy management, conference services, ResNet program, and the Georgia Tech Cable television that serves students living on campus and in nonresidential buildings such as the Student Center and Campus Recreation Center. The Assistant Vice President is responsible for fiscal oversight, strategic planning, and development of policies and procedures. Maintaining a culture of transparency and accountability while supporting continuous improvement and capacity building among staff are key priorities. The Assistant Vice President will develop and maintain an organizational structure designed to support strategic mission and data-driven goals that meet student and Institute needs, support excellence in individual and group performance, and ensure compliance with all institutional and regulatory policies.

 

The Assistant Vice President will maintain a highly visible position, interacting regularly with students and family members, faculty, administrative leadership and staff across student life, academic affairs, and administration and finance, and vendors and contractors. Functional duties include: daily operations; revenue generation and budget management including setting of housing fees, and investment in preventive and deferred maintenance as well as capital improvements designed to uphold high standards of residential living, building of engaged communities, creation of vibrant physical spaces that meet student needs; and ongoing assessment of effectiveness and satisfaction to determine short- and long-term planning. As the chief housing officer, the Assistant Vice President will manage a budget of approximately $77 million and be responsible for monthly cost and productivity analyses, as well as regular reports to institutional division leaders, external government agencies, vendors, students and family members, alumni, Board of Regents, and to the general public reflecting the value and contributions of residential living to student success. The Assistant Vice President will lead a diverse organization of approximately 200 employees, nearly 400 student staff, and a team of six direct reports.

 

A bachelor’s degree and ten or more years of progressive experience in student housing and/or residential life, or an equivalent combination of experience and education, are required. A master’s degree is preferred. The successful candidate will demonstrate advanced knowledge of: budget preparation and fiscal management including the ability to develop financial plans and manage resources; building and facilities maintenance; safety and security; student housing requirements and standards; and customer service standards and procedures. A student-first philosophy and ability to collaborate effectively with student life, as well as other institutional colleagues, is critically important. The position also requires strong analytical ability; written and verbal skills; interpersonal ability and relationship-building capacity; human resource management skills; negotiating and troubleshooting facility; ability to organize resources and establish priorities; and competency using current and emerging computer applications.  

 

Review of applications will begin January 16, 2019 and continue until the position is filled. A resume with an accompanying cover letter may be submitted via the Spelman Johnson website at www.spelmanjohnson.com/open-positions. Nominations for this position may be emailed to Valerie B.
