Associate Vice President and Dean of Students

Associate Vice President and Dean of Students

New York University (NYU), the largest private university in the United States, invites nominations and applications for the inaugural role of Associate Vice President and Dean of Students (AVP). NYU is reimagining its student affairs division in order to better prepare students for the challenges and complexities of today’s world. As part of this transformation, the leadership team will now include an Associate Vice President and Dean of Students on the New York campus, similar to the role found on the Abu Dhabi and Shanghai campuses of NYU. Reporting to the Chief Strategy Officer, Global Programs and University Life, Jason Pina, the AVP will help shape division strategy and systems that have a global reach while also serving as the day-to-day lead in student affairs on the New York campus. The student affairs division currently includes 500 full-time staff, a $117 million budget, and 21 residence halls located in and around the vibrant neighborhoods of Greenwich Village and Downtown Brooklyn.

The new AVP must bring a sophisticated and nuanced practice of inclusion and equity to the role as NYU is a complex, global institution with a powerful demonstrated commitment to social mobility. NYU students come from all over the world and bring to the University community extraordinary levels of talent and engagement and an unusually wide range of perspectives and experiences. This role offers a singular opportunity to interact with students, faculty, and colleagues from around the globe from a campus located in the largest and most diverse city in the nation.

The ideal candidate will bring an advanced degree in a relevant field and will work at both a systems and individual level, identifying trends within student communities and aligning programs and services to fulfill the mission and goals of the Division and the University. This position also builds partnerships both internally and externally across the entire University. The AVP will be highly visible and accessible to students, formally through their role in liaising with student governance organizations but also informally, seeking out those students who may not be engaged in formal university structures. The AVP will serve as a key deputy of the chief strategy officer, particularly in relation to high-profile student events and critical incidents.
