Ferrum College seeks a Dean of Residential Life and Title IX Coordinator who will provide collaborative and innovative leadership for one of the most inclusive and accessible liberal arts colleges in the United States.  The Dean will arrive at an exciting moment in the history of Ferrum College, as a new senior leadership team engages with faculty, staff, students, and local communities to shape initiatives designed to enrich the educational experiences for all Ferrum students.  

Partnering with a new Dean of Student Development and Wellness, the Dean of Residential Life will conduct cohesive and responsive college-wide efforts to promote health and wellness and strengthen a campus culture of safety and respect.  The Dean will also assist with college-wide persistence initiatives and provide a long-term vision for community development that best supports all students and the mission of Ferrum College.

The Dean of Residential Life also serves as the College’s Title IX Coordinator, partnering with the Director of Human Resources (who also serves as Deputy Title IX Coordinator) to oversee education, prevention, reporting and response, as well as investigations related to sexual misconduct.
