Job Details

Stony Brook University seeks an inspiring, entrepreneurial, and visionary leader to become the next dean of its College of Business. A member of the Association of American Universities (AAU) and a recently named flagship of the State University of New York (SUNY) System, Stony Brook is one of America's most dynamic public universities. Established in 1957 as a college for the preparation of secondary school teachers of mathematics and science, Stony Brook is now recognized as one of the nation's important centers of learning and scholarship. The university is dedicated to carrying out the mandate given by the State Board of Regents in 1960 to become a university that would "stand with the finest in the country."

Originally started in the mid-1970s as the Harriman School of Urban and Policy Sciences, the Stony Brook business education program evolved into a school of management and policy under the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. It was spun out in 2004 as a stand-alone College of Business, built a strong research reputation and healthy enrollment, and earned its AACSB accreditation in 2021. With this new designation and the emergence of higher education from the COVID pandemic, the college is poised to realize its growing ambitions.

The dean of the College of Business is the chief advocate for the mission and purpose of the college, both within the University and in the greater New York region. They provide leadership in setting the vision for the college and for curriculum and academic programs; overseeing faculty hiring, tenure, and promotion; fostering a strong community that is closely tied to and extends the Stony Brook academic tradition; building partnerships with the New York business community; raising funds for the college by facilitating strong donor connections; and maintaining robust and supportive alumni relationships.

The next dean will deeply engage with faculty and leadership in the college and across the university to develop a vision for the future and the path it will take to get there. The selected candidate will be an innovator open to new ideas, a champion for interdisciplinary work, and a leader infused with a collaborative spirit. The ideal candidate will be a distinguished scholar at the level of full professor who is ready to seize the opportunities that the thriving business environment of greater New York offers and to raise the college's profile.
