Franklin & Marshall College — Assistant Vice President for Auxiliary Services

Franklin & Marshall College invites nominations and applications for the position of Assistant Vice President for Auxiliary Services (AVPA). Reporting to the Vice President for Finance & Administration, the AVPA is a visible and valued campus leader who will recommend, implement, and evaluate strategies that put College faculty and staff in the best position to accomplish the institutional mission.

Founded in 1787, Franklin & Marshall (F&M) is a highly selective private liberal arts college that prizes its diverse and collaborative faculty and student communities centered on small class sizes and faculty-student research. The College’s mission is to help students develop their passion – including their intellectual, creative, and leadership talents – so that they may live fulfilling lives and contribute meaningfully to their occupations, their communities, and their world. F&M is proud of its nationally recognized talent strategy to build a dynamic student body as well as its College House system, which blends residential community, intellectual exploration, and student self-governance. The College enrolls roughly 2,200 students from the U.S. and around the world. F&M’s faculty are exceptional teachers and active scholars, offering a curriculum that spans the arts and sciences. The College’s operating budget for fiscal year 2022 is approximately $130 million, and its pooled endowment is valued at more than $400 million. Franklin & Marshall is located on 247 beautiful acres in Lancaster, PA, a diverse and progressive metropolitan area of approximately 500,000, with a lively arts culture, historic downtown, and easy access to Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York City, and Washington, DC.

The next AVPA will bring demonstrated success developing and leading teams while maintaining a keen strategic vision and keeping core values at the forefront of decision making. The ability to interact with all campus constituencies with professionalism, clarity, and respect will also be essential. The AVPA will possess a strong understanding of, appreciation for, and experience with shared governance in an institution of post-secondary education. The AVPA is responsible for the oversight of the College’s dining services contract, conferences services, event management, transportation services, and bookstore operations. In this role, the AVPA is the primary institutional point of contact with third parties managing F&M’s dining services, bookstore, and off-campus housing, thus negotiation and communication skills are critical to success. The AVPA also oversees the management of all College-owned investment properties.

Franklin & Marshall is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse community and promotes the full participation and inclusion of all its members. Grounded in the belief that diversity challenges assumptions, opens minds, and unlocks our collective potential to solve any problem, the AVPA will share the College’s mission to create and sustain a campus community that welcomes, understands, supports, and celebrates diversity of all kinds, including race and ethnicity, gender and sexual identity, regional and national origin, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, different learning styles and abilities, and more.
