Trinity College — Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs

Trinity College seeks a visionary, creative, and skillful leader to serve as its next Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Dean serves as the chief academic officer and second-in-command at the College, reporting directly to President Joanne Berger-Sweeney and serving the academic mission, faculty, staff, and students of an extraordinarily engaged, urban, liberal arts institution.

Trinity is marked by innovation, in teaching and scholarship as well as in its long-standing and multi-faceted engagement with the city of Hartford and the world. The College is a dynamic liberal arts institution where experimentation is encouraged and the connection between academe and the world is deep, broad, and meaningful. Trinity’s faculty, students, staff, administration, and trustees are deeply committed to its distinctive mission and the new Dean will have the opportunity to build on these historic strengths and lead the College into the future. 

As it nears its 200th anniversary in 2023, Trinity has completed a new strategic plan, Summit, is preparing for the public phase of a comprehensive campaign, and continues to innovate its curriculum and pedagogy as well as its ways of engaging with the city and world that surrounds it. The next Dean will have the opportunity to shape this continually evolving institution by helping to advance its strategic objectives, identifying and articulating key academic priorities, and serving as an advocate for and champion of an extraordinarily dedicated faculty of teacher/scholars. 

The ideal candidate will have a distinguished record of teaching, scholarship, and service that would merit appointment as a full professor at Trinity College. In addition, they should have substantial administrative experience appropriate to the size and complexity of the Dean’s role at Trinity.
