Job Details

Manhattan College seeks a Dean of the School of Science who will be the principal champion for innovative vision, leadership, and strategic direction for the School and its academic programs.

Manhattan College, located in the residential Riverdale section of the Bronx in New York City, is recognized for excellence in providing a distinctively engaging educational experience grounded in its Catholic and Lasallian commitment to education as both a search for wisdom and a means to contribute to the greater good of the human family. With an enrollment of 3,159 undergraduate and 528 graduate students, Manhattan College has enhanced and expanded its reputation for excellence chiefly by building on its core strengths: its Lasallian Catholic heritage, its location as a residential campus in New York City, and its ability to offer, in a medium-sized and person-centered college setting, an extraordinarily broad range of disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and co-curricular opportunities.

The School of Science enrolls 307 undergraduate and 24 graduate students and offers challenging majors in natural science, technology, and math within its five departments of Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics. The School’s 48 full-time faculty and eight staff members pride themselves on developing well-rounded scientists who value compassion as highly as innovation. To these ends, each academic program includes a core curriculum with courses in humanities, natural science, and behavioral and social science.

Reporting to the Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs, and serving on the Council of Deans, the Dean of the School of Science is the School’s chief academic and administrative officer. The next Dean will bring:

  • Significant academic administrative experience;
  • A strong commitment to the College’s mission, values, and Lasallian heritage; and
  • A record of teaching, scholarship, and service that exhibits an unwavering commitment to academic excellence and student and faculty success.

An earned doctorate and eligibility for appointment at the rank of full professor, with tenure, in one of the School’s five departments is required.

To ensure full consideration, completed applications are due by February 25, 2022. The search page, which includes the Executive Search Profile and application and nomination links, is located here.

RH Perry & Associates, a national executive search firm, is assisting Manhattan College in this search. All confidential communications may be directed to our search team: Dr. Sue DeWine, Senior Consultant, and Mr. Matthew Kilcoyne, Managing Partner, at [email protected].

Organization

Manhattan College is an independent Catholic institution of higher learning that embraces qualified men and women of all faiths, cultures, and traditions. The mission of Manhattan College is to provide a contemporary, person-centered educational experience that prepares graduates for lives of personal development, professional success, civic engagement, and service to their fellow human beings. The College pursues this mission through programs that integrate a broad liberal education with concentration in specific disciplines in the arts and sciences or with professional preparation in business, education and engineering.

Established in 1853 by the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, the College continues to draw its inspiration from the heritage of John Baptist de La Salle, the innovator of modern pedagogy and patron saint of teachers. Among the hallmarks of this Lasallian heritage are excellence in teaching, respect for human dignity, reflection on faith and its relation to reason, an emphasis on ethical conduct, and commitment to social justice. Location

The College is situated along Manhattan College Parkway on the heights above Van Cortlandt Park (242nd Street and Broadway) in the Riverdale section of New York City. It is a short distance from the 242nd Street station of the Broadway Seventh Avenue Subway, and can be easily reached from any part of the metropolitan or suburban areas. The exit of the Henry Hudson Parkway (West Side Highway) located at 239th Street several blocks to the west of the College puts the campus within easy reach of New Jersey. The College is also within easy commuting distance from Long Island and Westchester and Rockland counties because of its proximity to the New York State Thruway and the Major Deegan Expressway (exit at Van Cortlandt Park South or West 240th Street).
