Chaminade University of Honolulu seeks a forward-thinking and transformative leader to serve as its next president.
As the only Catholic University in Hawaiʻi, and one of three Marianist higher-education institutions in the U.S., Chaminade is guided by the understanding that both reason and faith are essential conditions in the pursuit of truth. Chaminade’s community is a family where students mature into world citizens who respect the complexity and diversity of others, value community service, and strive to create a more just society. Its faculty emphasize critical thinking and creative problem solving while mentoring students in more than 25 undergraduate and graduate programs in the fine arts and humanities, sciences and mathematics, behavioral sciences, business and communication, education, and nursing.
Located in the international city of Honolulu on the island of Oʻahu, Chaminade is regarded for its remarkably diverse student body––students come from Hawaiʻi, the mainland U.S., the Pacific region, and beyond. Class sizes are small, with a low student-to-faculty ratio. Students develop professionally through service learning projects, research and internship experiences, and leadership and community networking opportunities. At Chaminade, students receive a personalized education that prepares them for an ever-changing future.
The incoming president will be a person of Catholic faith who lives by and embraces the Catholic faith and Marianist educational philosophy, while preserving and participating in its rich traditions that are embedded across campus. She or he should be accepting of differing viewpoints and welcoming to students, faculty, and staff into the Chaminade ‘ohana (family) of all backgrounds and faith. The next president will be responsible for working collaboratively, transparently and inclusively with faculty, staff, students, and the Board of Regents to develop and articulate a shared vision that accounts for the distinct and unique characteristics of the campus and its community. A leader with strategic planning skills will be important to further strengthen the foundation of Chaminade’s academic programs and resources for a productive and sustainable future. Furthermore, she or he will play a critical role in serving as the institution’s ambassador, spokesperson, and visionary messenger with external constituents locally and beyond.
Inquiries, nominations, and applications are invited. For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by September 6, 2016. Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the leadership profile available at www.wittkieffer.com, and the names and contact information of five references. Candidate confidentiality will be respected and references will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates.
The Vice Provost for Strategic Enrollment Management will be a leader and a team-builder who can motivate and manage staff committed to academic excellence, and who can develop and implement innovative and state-of-the-art enrollment and retention strategies that involve the entire University community. She or he will support the development of a comprehensive, high-quality, data-driven, and evidence-based strategic enrollment program for a global university that serves domestic and international students through undergraduate and graduate programs offered at the main Hilltop campus (in the heart of San Francisco), two additional sites in San Francisco (downtown and the Presidio), five locations throughout California, and online. The vice provost reports directly to the Provost and serves as a member of the Provost’s Council, the President’s Cabinet, and the University’s Leadership Team.
The vice provost will lead proactively and collaboratively to employ traditional and non-traditional means to attract, select, enroll, register and retain a highly diverse and talented group of students. She or he will supervise a staff of approximately 80 FTE positions, including professional and support staff, and oversee an operating budget of approximately $11.5 million.
USF is recognized nationally and internationally as a leading Jesuit Catholic, urban university with a global perspective. Established as San Francisco’s first institution of higher education in 1855, the university is deeply embedded in the city of San Francisco. It serves approximately 11,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in the arts, sciences, education, law, management, nursing, and health professions. The University boasts one of the most diverse student bodies among four-year universities in the nation.
Recruitment will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should provide a resume, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the Leadership Statement available at www.wittkieffer.com, and the names and contact information of five references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates. These materials should be sent electronically via e-mail to the University of San Francisco consultants Charlene Aguilar and Pat Coleman at email address USanFranciscoVPSEM@wittkieffer.com. The consultants can be reached by telephone care of Laura Novak at 630-575-6943.
The University of San Francisco values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity for all persons regardless of age, color, disability, ethnicity, marital status, medical condition (cancer-related and genetic–related) ancestry, national origin, race, religion, religious creed, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, veteran status or any other status protected by law.
Founded by Franciscan friars in 1858, St. Bonaventure enjoys an outstanding reputation as a leading liberal arts-based university in the region, with strong business, science, journalism and education programs. Benefiting from the exposure generated by its participation in NCAA Division I athletics, St. Bonaventure has a national reputation for the excellence of its academic programs, its commitment to its students, and the passionate advocacy of its 29,000 alumni. Its approximately 2,000 students – 1,700 of them undergraduates – work closely with faculty in small classes and develop exceptional intellectual and leadership skills, informed by and engaged with the Franciscan friars who remain present on and involved with the campus. The University enjoys excellent town-gown relationships, and its 500-acre jewel of a campus is a key resource to the Olean, NY community that it calls home.
St. Bonaventure University has been led for the past 12 years by the renowned scholar Sister Margaret Carney, OSF, STD, who will retire in July of 2016 with the title of President Emeritus. An interim President has been named to serve during the search for the University’s 21st President.
As the University adopts a bold and visionary strategic plan (as the result of a highly inclusive, comprehensive planning process), it seeks a president with strong interpersonal communication skills and a successful track record as a leader and manager of institutional change. St. Bonaventure seeks a president who is able to engage, represent and champion the values and activities that flow from the Catholic and Franciscan traditions that are at the heart of the University’s mission. Likewise, while successful leadership experience in higher education is preferred, analogous experience outside higher education will be considered; the ideal candidate will possess an earned terminal degree in his or her discipline and a deep, personal resonance with excellence in scholarship and teaching. Of critical necessity is a thorough understanding of current trends in the evolving higher education marketplace accompanied by a vision for how institutions like St. Bonaventure can adapt to and thrive in this new environment. Increasing enrollment is a priority. Superior knowledge and a personal track record of successful engagement with the business and financial operations of higher education (or equivalent) are absolutely required, and a track record as a successful fundraiser is also critically important.
St. Bonaventure’s President will lead the institution boldly and confidently into a future informed by its Franciscan roots, values and mission, securing its place and its operations in the emerging 21st Century marketplace. Leaders aspiring to make such a personal, historical contribution are encouraged to express a candidacy.
Confidential inquiries, nominations, and applications are invited. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should provide a resume or CV, letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the leadership profile, and the names and contact information of five references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates. These materials should be sent electronically via email to St. Bonaventure University’s consultants Dennis M. Barden and Ann A. Yates at SBUPresident@wittkieffer.com.
