Tulane University, among the nation’s most prestigious and innovative academic institutions, seeks a creative and dynamic leader to serve as Assistant Dean and Executive Director of Career Services to provide strategic leadership and vision for  career and professional development-related programs and services for Newcomb-Tulane College, the home to all Tulane undergraduate students. The Assistant Dean and Executive Director will serve as a key university leader in setting the strategic direction and career services at Tulane University and will build bridges to closely collaborate with school and departmental units across the University to create a holistic, integrated function that improves career outcomes for Tulane’s talented students.

Founded in 1834, Tulane offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees across an attractive array of schools: architecture, business, law, liberal arts, medicine, public health and tropical medicine, the sciences and engineering, and social work. It is known for its highly collaborative environment, and has cultivated an emphasis on community service and practical experience that is infused in its programs, culture, and community. Tulane takes pride in providing hands-on experiences to its 8,339 undergraduate and 5,110 graduate students. The single-entry Newcomb-Tulane College (“NTC” or “The College”) provides a unique opportunity to bring all undergraduates together in a community of discovery, with career professionals collaborating with advisors to cultivate students skilled in theoretical, technological, and social practice. The College enables academic flexibility, emphasizes scholarship and engagement, provides opportunity for service, and positions students for post-graduate life by developing flexible, nimble thinkers who engage imaginatively, critically, and ethically with local, national, and global communities.

The Assistant Dean and Executive Director (“Assistant Dean”) will harness Tulane’s momentum to connect students with opportunities; bridge Career Services with other divisions like, academic advising, alumni affairs, and student affairs, to engage students holistically; and reach out proactively to external partners to enable students to achieve their career goals.
