Position Description

University of the Pacific
Executive Director of Residential Life, Housing and Dining Auxiliary



University of the Pacific, the first chartered institution of higher education in California (1851), is an independent, national, doctoral university with three distinct campuses, offering 80 programs of study in eleven schools and colleges, including diverse and accelerated undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. The University's main campus, renowned for its lush brick and ivy, Gothic architecture and warm California climate, is located in Stockton, while the Pacific McGeorge School of Law is located on the Sacramento campus and the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is housed on the San Francisco campus. In 2017 over 3,800 undergraduates and more than 1,150 graduate and professional students were enrolled, with over 4,800 on the main campus. With a live-on campus requirement for all first- and second-year students, fifty percent of Pacific's students live on campus, and participate in a vibrant residential life with over 125 clubs and organizations, a robust recreation program, and a competitive Division I NCAA athletics program.

Stockton, centrally located just 25 miles west of the Sierra Nevada foothills and within 100 miles of both Sacramento and California's Bay Area, offers boating, fishing, water skiing and sailing that ideally caters to the water sports enthusiast. With a population over 700,000 and a relatively low cost of living compared to other California metro areas, Stockton has been rated in the Top 125 Places to Live in the U.S. by US News & World Report and has won the All-America City Award from the National Civic League in 1999, 2004, 2015, 2017 and 2018. Stockton supports a vibrant arts and culture scene with a symphony, ballet, plays, children's museum, civic theater, festivals, history, and many culinary and dining experiences to suit every appetite.

The Position
Reporting to the Associate Vice President/Dean of Students and serving as a key leader in the Division of Student Life, the Executive Director of Residential Life, Housing and Dining Auxiliary provides innovative, strategic, and comprehensive leadership for the programs, services, facilities, and budgets with multiple campus stakeholders on all three campuses. The Executive Director oversees a broad portfolio of responsibilities, providing an overall vision, managing personnel functions, administering sound fiscal management, and leading a dynamic team that provides oversight of a multi-dimensional residence life, housing, and dining program. The Executive Director fosters strong, collaborative relationships with campus partners, including Facilities Support Services, Capital Planning, Business and Finance, Enrollment Management, and Fraternity and Sorority Life; provides direction for the development and implementation of policies, procedures, and the Housing Plan; and oversees the implementation of the Residential Life curriculum. Additionally, the Executive Director provides oversight for occupancy management and develops a strategic vision to grow occupancy; demonstrates expertise in the use of technology and data analytics to develop key performance indicators and assess program/department outcomes; works closely with Capital Planning and Facilities Support Services to implement new construction, renovations, and maintenance plans developed by Residential Life and Housing leadership; and serves in the department's professional on-call rotation. The Executive Director supervises a high-performing team of 14, including four direct reports, and manages an annual operating budget of approximately $23 million.
