Carthage College seeks an accomplished and collaborative intellectual leader to serve as its next Provost and Chief Academic Officer. Founded in 1847, Carthage is a selective, private four-year college located on the shore of Lake Michigan, 35 minutes from Milwaukee and 55 minutes from Chicago. The College emphasizes an education in the liberal arts and sciences as preparation for professional fulfillment and service to one's community. Carthage enrolls approximately 2,600 full-time and 200 part-time students, and offers undergraduate, graduate, and professional development programs. Its dedicated faculty consists of 160 full-time teacher-scholars, two-thirds of whom hold tenure or tenure-track appointments, and more than 100 part-time instructors.

In recent decades, Carthage has enjoyed prosperity and growth rarely seen at institutions of higher education. Enrollments and applications—and academic quality—have increased steadily and dramatically: over 7,000 high school students applied for the 707 openings in the Fall 2017 freshman class. The College has had operating surpluses for more than 30 years. Since 1999 Carthage has invested more than $200 million in campus facilities, including the $43 million Science Center, the Campbell Student Union, the A.W. Clausen Center for World Business, Hedberg Library, the Oaks Residential Village, and the N.E. Tarble Athletic and Recreation Center. A new residence hall project is underway and set for completion in fall of 2018.

The next provost will join Carthage at an exciting moment and build on the institution's singular record of success. A new President, John R. Swallow, began his tenure in summer 2017; he has energized the campus with an inspiring sense of the College's potential and its future. A strategic planning process, adopted in 2015, calls on the College's community to elevate and refine Carthage's student- and learning-centered approach, and to create and implement strategies, programs, and systems that will ensure that Carthage students have the very best educational and developmental experiences. Working with administrators, faculty, and staff, the Provost will play an instrumental and essential role in the execution of this plan and the realization of its aspirational goals.

The successful candidate will be a resourceful, imaginative thinker with a record of effective academic and administrative leadership. This individual will also possess the knowledge and experience to develop successful strategies and tactics that strengthen academic programs, their delivery, and their impact. The Provost will serve as a champion of and catalyst for the collective strengths of Carthage's faculty and academic staff, demonstrating a leadership style that is accessible, collaborative, and engaged. An earned doctorate or other terminal degree is required, as is a record of scholarship and teaching commensurate with appointment to the rank of full professor.

Inquiries, nominations, and/or applications (including a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest) should be directed in confidence to:

Anita Tien, Vice President

Emily Buehrens, Associate

Isaacson, Miller
