Position Description

The University of Michigan, one of the great public research universities in the nation and the world, invites inquiries, nominations, and applications for the newly reconfigured position of Associate Vice President for Student Life and Director of the University Health Service. The University seeks a talented and experienced physician administrator with superior leadership abilities to lead all aspects of comprehensive health care for students.

From the time of its founding in 1817, the University of Michigan has developed into a national model of a complex, diverse, and comprehensive institution of higher learning that supports excellence in research; provides outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and professional education; and demonstrates commitment to public service and engagement. It is one of only two institutions consistently ranked among the nation’s top ten public universities. Many of its departments and professional schools are ranked among the top ten in the country. The University has an annual budget of over $7 billion and $1.3 billion in annual research expenditures. The Ann Arbor campus is located 35 miles west of Detroit, with regional campuses located in the cities of Dearborn and Flint.

Reporting to the Vice President for Student Life, the Associate Vice President for Student Life and Director of the University Health Service (AVP/Director) provides leadership for the administrative and operational activities of the University Health Service, including programs, facilities, services, and staff, and oversees multiple units and functions essential to the Student Life mission and the successful operation of the University. Primary responsibilities include coordination, direction, and oversight of both auxiliary and general fund operations; coordination and execution of strategic plans and goals; assessment and continuous improvement of programs and services; and support for Student Life goals, plans, initiatives, and mission. In addition to the University Health Service, reporting units include Counseling and Psychological Services, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center, and Services for Students with Disabilities. This role will also provide institutional leadership and partnership on issues relating to health and wellness. The AVP/Director’s portfolio strives to be student focused and financially assertive, requiring the ability of its leadership to fulfill the Student Life mission and its commitment to students, while managing entrepreneurial and business-oriented enterprises. The AVP/Director is a key part of the Student Life leadership team and, as such, also helps guide strategic direction, efforts, and responses for Student Life as needed by the Vice President.

Minimum qualifications include M.D./D.O. from an accredited medical school; current board certification in an appropriate specialty field; and current license or eligible to practice medicine in the state of Michigan and current license or eligible to possess a state and federal narcotics and controlled substance license; at least five years of leadership experience, preferably within a university/college health center; experience with an electronic health record; knowledge of, and experience with, quality improvement and accreditation standards and processes; leadership in advancing a culture of well-being in a university setting. Preferred qualifications include at least ten years of experience in college health or in a closely related area of health care practice and administration; strong business acumen including finance/budgeting experience; commitment to the health, wellness, and academic success of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students; experience in senior student affairs management at a public and/or peer institution; and demonstrated experience working with diverse populations.
