Spelman College — Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

Spelman College, a historically black college and a global leader in the education of women of African descent, seeks a provost and vice president for academic affairs (“provost”) with vision, energy, and a distinguished record of scholarship and leadership in higher education to further advance the college. In its next provost, Spelman seeks a highly respected scholar with a strong commitment to the liberal arts and to single-sex education for women of promise who will lead lives of distinction. The provost will serve as a key member of the senior leadership team and play a pivotal role in setting and achieving Spelman’s academic, strategic, and institutional goals.

The position becomes available at an exciting time in the college’s history as President Mary Schmidt Campbell leads the campus in a strategic planning process that will profoundly impact educational programs and campus life at Spelman and provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful members of the global community. The provost will partner with the president to assure the execution of the strategic plan and will work closely with her to implement special initiatives that advance Spelman’s institutional excellence. The successful candidate will have the experiences necessary to lead the academic enterprise with creativity and innovation; recruit, develop, and retain excellent faculty; provide effective leadership and management to the office of the provost; support and strengthen the commitment to shared governance; and foster an intellectually and culturally diverse institution.
