Vice President for Student Affairs

Middlebury College seeks an innovative, knowledgeable, and collaborative leader to serve as its next Vice President for Student Affairs (VPSA). The VPSA will serve as a key member of President Laurie Patton’s leadership team, setting the strategic direction for student affairs at Middlebury’s Vermont campus as well as ultimately providing guidance for its affiliated programs and locations around the world. The VPSA will bring a creative, data-informed, and systems approach to several critical College priorities: 1) the collaborative re-envisioning of residential life at Middlebury, 2) ensuring an anti-racist, inclusive, and equitable campus community in which all students can thrive, and 3) further integration of restorative practices into the daily work of the student affairs division. Middlebury is deeply engaged in the process of identifying and dismantling systemic inequities across the institution and the VPSA will be expected to serve as a key collaborator and visible leader in this important work.

Middlebury College is a complex global institution that has grown and evolved significantly since its founding in 1800. Today, Middlebury offers a wide array of students a rigorous and innovative liberal arts experience that connects their academic work with the challenges of our changing world. Middlebury’s campuses and programs around the world include: the original undergraduate campus in Vermont which is the heart of the enterprise, Middlebury Language Schools, The Schools Abroad programs, The Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey and the Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English, and the Middlebury School of the Environment.

The Vice President for Student Affairs will be responsible for the strategic vision, personnel management, and fiscal management of the student affairs division, which includes health and wellness and public safety. They will also work closely with their partners and colleagues in the Office of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, Academic Affairs, Athletics, Enrollment, Advancement, and other areas across the college.  While Middlebury’s Dean of Students is primarily responsible for day-to-day operations and case management of individual students, the Vice President will focus on removing systemic barriers and building new structures that will enable all of Middlebury’s students to thrive.

The ideal candidate will possess an advanced degree and have deep experience with implementing state-of-the-art student affairs strategies and initiatives. They should be experienced in leading an organization through a time of change and committed to anti-racism and to ensuring inclusivity and equity for all community members through both their personal and professional conduct.
