Associate Provost for Professional Development and Experiential Education
Drew University
Madison, NJ

Posted 4/12/2018

Drew University, a Phi Beta Kappa liberal arts university, includes the College of Liberal Arts, the Drew Theological School and the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies. Drew is located on a beautiful, wooded, 186-acre campus in Madison, New Jersey, a thriving small town close to New York City. It has a total enrollment of more than 2,000 students and has 145 full-time faculty members, 94% of whom hold the terminal degree in their fields. The Theological and Caspersen Schools offer MA and PhD degrees, as well as a variety of professional master’s degrees, and the College confers BA degrees in 32 disciplines. 

Drew is dedicated to exceptional faculty mentorship, a commitment to connecting the campus with the community and a focus on experiential learning. A particularly noteworthy example for undergraduates is the Charles A. Dana Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti (RISE), home of 2015 Nobel Prize Winner for Medicine and Drew Fellow William Campbell. 

Founded in 1867, the Theological School prepares scholars, ministers, educators, activists, and not-for-profit professionals for leadership in the academy, church, and civil society. The Caspersen School of Graduate Studies, founded in 1955, has an extraordinary configuration of six programs that focus on “the humanities at work.” These programs put disciplinary and interdisciplinary content into academic, social, and professional contexts. In addition, new and enhanced programs in teacher education and in finance represent the start of the expansion in graduate programs that will be happening in the years ahead. 

The university also houses several interdisciplinary centers, including the Center for Civic Engagement, the Center on Religion, Culture & Conflict, the Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study and the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, an independent professional theater, as well as the United Methodist Archives and History Center, home to a rare 1611 printing of the King James Bible. In addition, the Rose Library has one of the country’s leading concentrations of materials on American novelist Willa Cather. 

Drew University seeks an Associate Provost to lead its new Center for Professional Development and Experiential Education (CPDEE). Contributing a creative, collaborative, and strategic skill set, the Associate Provost will advance Drew University’s mission of preparing graduates who are intellectually nimble, ethically grounded, and professionally prepared to engage with their communities and add to the world’s good by responding to the urgent challenges of our time. The Associate Provost will provide vision and leadership for the CPDEE that encompasses internships and career development, civic engagement, global education, and various units responsible for undergraduate student research and other forms of experiential learning. The Associate Provost will collaborate with directors of each unit to support their distinctive areas of excellence and to build an integrated model that helps students connect their experiential education, post-college planning, and career and professional development experiences with their academic learning into a cohesive educational experience that prepares them for future success. 

Increasing undergraduate and graduate student participation and engagement in, as well as expanding opportunities for, meaningful experiential learning that strengthens their career development are important priorities of the Associate Provost. Additional responsibilities include: engaging faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and intern and employer partners to support students’ post-graduation success; leveraging state-of-the art practices for student career counseling and preparation to enhance learning and development of in-demand competencies; partnering with direct reports, academic colleagues, and advancement officers to convey opportunities and raise external funds to expand CPDEE’s initiatives; enhancing current assessment efforts and analyzing data to determine programmatic strategic direction; designing high visibility programs that showcase and promote the value of experiential learning; planning facility requirements that will optimize collaboration, synergy, and efficiency of shared mission and resources, space, and access for students and campus partners to engage with the CPDEE. The Associate Provost will serve as a key member of the Provost’s senior leadership team and will work cooperatively with academic program directors, faculty, student affairs, and other campus colleagues in supporting institutional strategic priorities and advancing the mission of the Center for Professional Development and Experiential Education. 

A master’s degree is required; a terminal degree in a relevant field is preferred. The successful candidate will demonstrate a knowledge of best practices in experiential education and developing career oriented initiatives for college students. A proven track record of large-scale program development and implementation, preferably within an academic environment, is also required. Other important considerations in the selection of the Associate Provost include: experience motivating, facilitating, and supporting collaboration across teams and working effectively with both internal and external constituencies; a record of proven administrative and management experience; demonstrated skills working with a diverse student population; and evidence of excellent oral and written communication skills. A track record of successful fundraising is also preferred. 

Review of applications will begin May 11, 2018, and continue until the position is filled.
