The Dean, reporting to the Provost, serves as the chief academic and administrative officer of the College. With counsel from the College and institutional leadership and in consultation with the faculty, the Dean makes fundamental strategic choices about how to deploy the College’s resources to best advance its academic mission.

The Dean will join an institution with a strong sense of community and collegiality among the Deans, and a College that offers a unique array of opportunities for learning and research. The Dean of NSM will provide leadership in defining and articulating the College’s strategic priorities, and will promote academic collaboration, shared teaching, and scholarly exchange through an increased commitment to interdisciplinary programs and opportunities across the institution and beyond. The Dean of NSM plays a major leadership role in the broader university, stimulating and facilitating synergistic collaboration with Colleges as well as interdisciplinary institutes, centers, and programs.
