Job Details

Northland College is committed to having a faculty, staff, administration, and student body that reflect the social, racial, and economic diversity that characterizes our society. The College is committed to sustaining an inclusive learning, working, and living community. This requires many important components, including: students, faculty, administration, and staff who reflect the diversity of our society; people from different backgrounds and with different views who treat one another with mutual respect and honest; curiosity so that they can engage with and learn from one another; and a motivation to infuse diversity into all aspects of the life and mission of the College. These conditions enable a genuine liberal arts education, in which the presence of people with different lived experiences and ideas, engaged in civil dialogue, overcomes ignorance and builds trust and knowledge. The Division of Student Affairs is deeply committed to creating an inclusive campus environment for all members of the Northland College community where a sense of belonging is fostered and sustained. Student Affairs is well positioned to be a valuable contributor to the Northland campus community and its external partners. We achieve our mission through the collaboration and partnership with internal and external stakeholders to collectively work toward greater equity, inclusion and belonging for our campus community. The Dean of Students Experience and Success is an experienced, innovative and student-centered leader who works collaboratively with students, staff, and faculty, to foster a healthy and vibrant living and learning community that inspires students to be engaged global citizens. 


At Northland College, we understand that successful, meaningful lives depend on healthy relationships—with the natural world, with one another, with ourselves. And, we are committed to helping engaged learners acquire the skills, knowledge, and experiences they need to develop these relationships. Northland College combines a strong liberal arts curriculum with a focus on the environment. We believe that our relationship with the environment gives us the skills and courage necessary to act as responsible citizens in a globally interdependent world. Northland’s distinctive environmental liberal arts program, passionate faculty, and beautiful natural location create a community of engaged learners who develop the northland_college1.jpgskills and experience to prepare for advanced studies and meaningful lives.

Built on a foundation that emphasizes connections, our academic program is distinctive for its integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to general education and for its innovative academic majors. From first-year experiences in our Connections curricula to senior-year seminars and capstone projects, our academic program immerses students in real-world complexities that develop the habits of mind and heart required to negotiate these complexities with success.

Located in Northern Wisconsin, next to Lake Superior and nearly one million acres of the Chequamegon National Forest, Northland College provides unique experiential learning opportunities that can't be offered elsewhere. Northland College is Visionary by Nature.
