Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
Adelphi University invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students. The Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students (VPSA) serves as the chief student affairs officer, reports to the University president and is a key member of the executive leadership team. Additionally, the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students will work collaboratively with the provost and serve as a member of the Deans' Council. We're looking for a proven, innovative and collaborative leader capable of bringing a bold, creative vision and strong organizational and management skills to the position.
For a detailed description of this executive position, please review the position prospectus, available here.
It's an exciting time in the history of Adelphi University, New York. We've climbed four places in the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings, bringing us into its top 150 National Universities. Due to our strong growth in enrollment, Eduventures named us one of just two national winners of its 2018 Eduventures Innovation Award. We have high national rankings for several schools and programs and dramatically improved our position in recently released rankings from the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (up 27 spots), Money magazine (up 52 spots) and Niche (up 37 spots), while remaining on the selective Forbes America's Top Colleges list.
The Vice President will play a key role in implementing the University's long-range strategic vision defined within Momentum: The Strategic Plan for Adelphi University, 2015-2021—most notably, Adelphi's relentless dedication to student success and its commitment to world-class academic programs.
The VPSA will be an acknowledged leader in the field of student affairs—one who sets the highest standard for committing to the holistic success of the individual student. The VPSA will be able to bring new initiatives forward successfully, while at the same time embracing a University culture that values collaboration, effective working relationships and partnerships across divisions. This position will also be responsible for fully aligning and collaborating with the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Campus Recreation.
The VPSA is a newly elevated role at Adelphi University, created as a result of careful consideration of campus needs, as well as a review of best practices among peer institutions nationwide. The new position has oversight and responsibility for several existing units and a team of more than 50 employees—including the Health Services Center, the Center for Student Involvement, the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards, the Office of Residential Life and Housing, counseling and support services (Student Counseling Center), the Student Access Office, the Center for Career and Professional Development, and the Interfaith Center.
Additional but equally important responsibilities to be assumed by the VPSA involve working closely with various internal and external constituencies and partners, governmental and community organizations related to student recruitment, and engagement and retention efforts.
The VPSA will be joining Adelphi at a time when the University is embarking on a major renovation of its student hub, the Ruth S. Harley University Center, set to reopen in Fall 2020.
