Gettysburg College — Associate Provost for Academic Affairs

Gettysburg College
Associate Provost for Academic Affairs

Gettysburg College invites inquiries, nominations, and applications, in their search for an innovative, collaborative, and dynamic leader to serve as the inaugural Associate Provost for Academic Affairs (APAA). Located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and in close proximity to Harrisburg, PA, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, MD, Gettysburg is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences that inspires and prepares students—as whole persons—to lead lives of meaning, service, and consequence. Providing unique experiences and a modern approach to pedagogy, Gettysburg enrolls more than 2,400 students from 40 states and 49 countries. There is a strong preference for the new APAA to take office before the Fall 2023 academic semester begins.

Reporting to the Provost Designate, Jamila Bookwala, the APAA will provide vision and leadership on curricular innovation, high impact and experiential learning, co-curricular synergies, student learning assessment, institutional accreditation and effectiveness, and academic advising. The APAA is expected to advance educational access, equity, inclusion, and belonging while prioritizing a campus-wide strategy for student success. As a member of the Provost's Senior Leadership Team, the APAA will work in close collaboration with division heads, department chairs, faculty, staff, and students as well as colleagues in other campus divisions to foster a culture of trust, connectivity, and innovation.

A Ph.D. or terminal academic degree is required, along with a scholarly record that supports an appointment as a tenured faculty member, at least at the associate rank, in one of the academic departments at Gettysburg College.
