Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs

The University of Washington Tacoma invites applications and nominations for the position of Professor with Tenure/Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Reporting to the Chancellor at the University of Washington Tacoma, the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (EVCAA) is the chief academic officer of the campus. The EVCAA oversees all academic matters, including graduate and undergraduate education, academic planning and curriculum, faculty, academic support, and resource allocation in the context of shared governance. The EVCAA partners with the Vice Chancellors for Finance and Administration, Equity and Inclusion, Student Affairs, Advancement, and Information Technology, as well as the Chief Strategy Officer, and the Assistant Chancellor for Community Partnerships, to achieve the strategic impact goals of the campus. Academic Affairs includes several units and seven Schools.

UW Tacoma is an extraordinarily dynamic and aspirational institution. Building on the existing momentum and trajectory of UW Tacoma, the future holds significant potential for growth, increased excellence, and the opportunity to propel the University into the ranks of the premier urban serving institutions in the country.  The next EVCAA will join an institution that is fiscally sound, operationally healthy, and deeply committed to its mission. It is an institution with strong community and legislative support.

The University seeks an energetic, entrepreneurial leader who will fully embrace the urban-serving mission of UW Tacoma and guide strategic efforts to develop further the academic identity of the University in support of this mission.  The EVCAA should have a strong track record enhancing academic excellence, ensuring a diverse university, building an inclusive and safe environment, and effectively representing an institution to an engaged external constituency.  They will have superb management skills and business acumen, combined with highly developed communication skills.  As someone responsible for reviewing all tenure and promotion cases, it is equally important that the next EVCAA is an accomplished scholar. The EVCAA will have the academic appointment and rank of professor (100%), attached to the position.
