Director of Admission and Student Affairs – USC School of Pharmacy

Since its founding in 1905, the USC School of Pharmacy leads the nation in advancing pharmaceutical care, education, and research in educating a new generation of pharmacists. The USC School of Pharmacy is ranked the number 1 private pharmacy school in the nation and is in the top 10 of all schools of pharmacy.

The challenge of recruiting and retaining the highest quality of students has expanded to include not only the traditional regional recruitment areas of Southern California but also seeks an individual with the experience and initiative to develop a national and international recruitment program of the highest quality.

The School of Pharmacy has recently revised its PharmD curriculum to strengthen it to provide students with the very best preparation for an ever-changing marketplace. The roles of the future pharmacist include not only practice in traditional settings but also work in regulatory affairs, the pharmaceutical industry, drug development, and academia.

Additionally, while not in the direct portfolio of this position, the Ph.D. programs have been supplemented with a new range of specialty Masters Programs to provide additional direct educational experiences that can enhance the PharmD degree and also stand alone.

Within this framework the new Director of Admission and Student Affairs will have a major influence on the restructuring of the Admission Office that also handles the more fundamental aspects of student recruitment, admissions and retention. These include financial aid, registration, input on tuition and fees, academic policies and standards, development of student advisement and intervention programs, mentoring programs, and other related responsibilities.

As a member of the School's leadership team the incumbent will require strong organization skills, the ability to work effectively and collegially with the entire range of operations from clerical to senior leadership, and will be able to succeed in a variety of pressure situations with simultaneous demands and priorities along with quality outcomes.

Excellent oral and written communication skills are necessary. While familiarity with USC systems is a plus, the right candidate will find no difficulty in mastering those systems and developing other in-house systems to effectively and efficiently meet the demands of the Office.

Minimum requirements include a Bachelor's Degree; a Master's Degree is a plus

Minimum experience is 5 – 10 years; 10 years or more is a plus of which 3 years would ideally be in a similar position.

Minimum Education: Bachelor's degree. Combined experience/education as substitute for minimum education.
Minimum Experience: 5 years
Minimum Field of Expertise: Supervisory experience in student programs and services

Compensation and Benefits
The University of Southern California offers a competitive salary within an academic environment based on the candidate's experience and accomplishments.
