University of North Carolina Asheville:
Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost

The University of North Carolina Asheville, the only dedicated liberal arts institution in the University of North Carolina system and the Princeton Review's No. 1 university for “Making an Impact,” welcomes applications and nominations for the position of Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. The University is seeking a dynamic, innovative, and passionate champion of liberal arts education who embraces the distinctive role of a public university. One of 17 institutions in the University of North Carolina system, and international headquarters of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC), University of North Carolina Asheville offers more than 30 undergraduate majors and a Master of Liberal Arts and Sciences degree. Enrolling 3,900, University of North Carolina Asheville encourages students to take part in a nationally acclaimed undergraduate research program and participate in interdisciplinary learning. From internships and hands-on projects, to study abroad and community engagement, students experience an education that extends beyond campus into the vibrant city of Asheville, the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, and the world.

Under the leadership of its new Chancellor, Nancy J. Cable, University of North Carolina Asheville has entered into an exciting, new chapter in its distinguished 92 year history. Reporting directly to the Chancellor and serving as a member of her Cabinet and senior leadership team, the Provost is responsible for the strategic vision, direction, and effectiveness of the University's academic programs. The University is seeking a senior leader who can inspire a vision for 21st century liberal arts and sciences education that will support faculty, staff, and students to foster innovations in pedagogy, student learning, and academic programs.

The University seeks a transformational leader who possesses the academic, financial, and strategic acumen to offer strong, collaborative, and transparent leadership within the University and Asheville communities. The new Provost must possess an earned doctorate, demonstrate academic scholarship, have a record of successful institutional leadership in liberal arts and sciences institutions or related fields, and demonstrate the ability to lead across multiple academic disciplines and departments. The Provost is expected to have a proven record of support for diversity, inclusive excellence, and transparency in decision making; and of promoting innovative approaches to teaching and learning, global education, and shared governance. The successful candidate will be a collaborative leader who acts with integrity and moral courage, possesses the ability to communicate with diverse constituents, and fosters collegiality and clarity in the decision-making process.

The new Provost is expected to assume office no later than mid-summer 2019.
