Dartmouth seeks an experienced, innovative and collaborative leader to serve as its next Associate Dean for Community Life and Inclusivity (ACDI). This position reports to the Dean of the College and serves as a key advisor regarding diversity, equity, inclusion and community as well as a member of the Student Affairs divisional management team.

Founded in 1769, Dartmouth is an educational community with a mission "that educates the most promising students and prepares them for a lifetime of learning and responsible leadership through a faculty dedicated to teaching and the creation of knowledge." Located in Hanover, New Hampshire, this beautiful campus is surrounded by nature. Dartmouth prepares the most promising students for a lifetime of learning and of responsible leadership, grounded in intellectual and personal growth and experiential learning experiences as part of a residential liberal arts community. The division of Student Affairs fosters the integration of learning through over forty academic departments and programs, predominately focused on the over 4,000 undergraduate students. 

The Associate Dean for Community Life & Inclusivity serves as an essential leader and consultant to the Dean of the College as a member of the Divisional Management Team. The Associate Dean is responsible for the strategic direction for and oversight of the Native American Program, the Office of Pluralism and Leadership and the William Jewett Tucker Center for Ethical and Spiritual Life. As the leader of Community Life & Inclusivity initiatives, the associate dean will advise, manage and guide directors that will in turn provide support for their staff--with the goal of providing the best possible student experience. While the associate dean will work with students, their main function is to serve as a senior administrator. The ADCI will serve as the chief diversity, equity and inclusion strategist for the division of Student Affairs. Their leadership serves to set the best practices and policies for the division.

The ADCI is a fiscal manager and knows how to consolidate resources and manage multiple budgets. They will be comfortable meeting with donors and alumni to share Dartmouth's DEI initiatives, as opportunities arise. The ADCI will manage an operational and programming budget in excess of $1.9 million, a $676K annual endowment and giving fund, and 17.5 full-time equivalent staff.

The ADCI is a seasoned inclusion, equity, and diversity practitioner, fluent in the theoretical and practical applications of social justice, equity, and inclusion frameworks within higher education. They will champion the equity and inclusion of underrepresented and minoritized populations. With the full support of their divisional and campus partners, they will lead the charge in facilitating a campus culture where all students see a reflection of their identities and access a sense of belonging. They will understand and center the lived experience of underrepresented students, faculty and staff, holding them with genuine empathy and sensitivity.
