New York University
Associate Vice President (AVP) and Executive Director for the Wasserman Center for Career Development
New York, NY

New York University (NYU) seeks a senior leader to serve as the next Associate Vice President (AVP) and Executive Director for the Wasserman Center for Career Development. The AVP will drive innovation and provide senior strategic leadership in the design, development, implementation, assessment, and direction of career development related programs and services. The AVP will serve as a key university leader in setting the overall direction for global career services at NYU.

NYU is a global research university that has the distinction of being one of the largest private universities in the United States and a pioneer in establishing degree granting campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai. Over the span of a generation, NYU has achieved dramatic improvements in academic reputation, the eminence of its faculty, the size and influence of its research portfolio, and the strength of its undergraduate, graduate, and professional education. In 2016, NYU inaugurated a new President, Dr. Andrew Hamilton, previously the vice chancellor of Oxford University, to continue NYU’s strong upward trajectory.

In accordance with the global and inclusive mission of New York University and the Division of Student Affairs, the AVP will lead and oversee a large team of professionals as well as allocate resources for student/alumni career development and student employment programs. The Wasserman Center for Career Development provides career development services to all students from all NYU schools (except NYU School of Medicine and Stern School of Business Graduate Students) and alumni. The AVP will be charged with developing, expanding, and directing programs and services for career development within the Wasserman Center at its Washington Square and Brooklyn locations, as well as partner on programs designed to facilitate and enhance the student career development experience at NYU’s global campuses.

The ideal candidate will provide strategic and effective campus leadership on known and emerging issues, as well as development of relationships with internal and external campus partners. The AVP must be flexible, intellectually curious, and possess a strong commitment to customer service. S/he will provide operational leadership and oversight of a customized, highly effective and data-driven career development culture experience that engages students and alumni at all levels.

All inquiries, nominations/referrals, and resumes with cover letters, should be sent electronically and in confidence to:
