Princeton University seeks a strategic and collaborative leader to serve as Vice Provost for International Affairs and Operations (“Vice Provost”). Reporting to the Provost, the Vice Provost for International Affairs and Operations will help to design and administer partnerships, policies, and programs that advance the international dimensions of Princeton’s research and teaching missions and enhance the University’s global connections. The Vice Provost is the University’s senior international affairs officer, working closely with the Provost and other University leaders to strategically increase Princeton’s outreach, impact and visibility around the world. The University is seeking a visionary leader with demonstrated experience and a deep commitment to international research and education to assume this critical role.

Princeton has developed, and looks to further extend, enhance, and integrate a rich network of international relationships and activities in service to its mission of research, teaching, and scholarship. The Vice Provost directly oversees the Davis International Center; provides administrative oversight for the Princeton China Center, and the Mpala Research Centre; and serves as a member of and key collaborative partner for Princeton’s Council for International Teaching and Research. The Vice Provost will be expected to further develop and sustain strategic partnerships through regular communications with contacts at partner institutions, and coordinate activities and communications between various offices and centers on campus, including the Office of International Programs, the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, and the Center for Language Study.

The new Vice Provost will embrace Princeton’s distinct culture and commitment to collegiality. His or her performance will be measured in substantial part by providing seamless support to the University’s academic mission. Demonstrated ability to establish and maintain productive, collaborative relationships with a full range of internal and external colleagues and constituencies will be critical.
