Marymount Manhattan College (MMC or College), a dynamic urban institution located in the heart of New York City, seeks an outstanding leader to carry forward its distinctive mission as a four-year, independent liberal arts college. MMC is a private, coeducational and nonsectarian college that is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The successful candidate would assume office during the summer of 2015; some flexibility on the start date is possible. MMC offers excellent programs in the liberal arts and substantial pre-professional preparation. It offers a wide range of study options in the sciences, performing and visual arts, communication arts and business. New York City is key to MMC’s identity and its academic programs because of the unique opportunities available in this global capital, including the broad array of research possibilities, experiential learning venues and attractive career options. Regardless of their specific course of study, all students experience the liberal arts taught in a manner that is both contemporary and innovative. Because of MMC’s location and the exceptional quality of education and training offered by the College, there is great demand for the College’s highly selective and nationally recognized programs in Dance and Theatre Arts. MMC has approximately 1,800 full-time and part-time students who are from 48 states and 59 countries. The College offers 17 majors and 38 minors. With 89 full-time faculty members and a robust part-time faculty, MMC has a student-to-faculty ratio of 11:1; the average class size is approximately 17 students. Ninety-six percent of the faculty members hold terminal degrees. The next president will have significant and successful leadership experience at the senior levels of administration, and must be a person of impeccable integrity, high energy, and good humor. In addition, the successful candidate will have exceptional public speaking and communication skills, possess financial acumen, and embrace a deeply collaborative approach for governance of the institution. There is a strong preference for candidates to hold a terminal degree. To apply, candidates should send the following required materials as an e-mail attachment in Microsoft Word to mmcpres@academic-search.com. These materials should include a reflective letter of interest, a current resume, and the names and current phone numbers of at least five professional references (they will be called at a later, semi-final stage with the advance consent of the candidate). Letters of nomination are welcome but not required. For full consideration, applications should be received by Monday, August 18, 2014. By MMC policy and Search Committee affirmation, information from and about all candidates will be kept in strict confidence.
