Senior Associate Dean, Finance, Operations and Technology

Oxford College of Emory University seeks an accomplished and experienced higher education leader to serve as its Senior Associate Dean for Finance, Operations and Technology.  Reporting to the Dean of Oxford College, the Senior Associate Dean will oversee and strengthen the College’s financial and day-to-day operations and strategic resource planning in support of the educational mission.  As a member of the Dean’s Council and campus leadership groups, the Senior Associate Dean will be a trusted partner to other senior leaders, faculty, and staff.

Building on decades of distinctive teaching and learning and the pioneering work of generations of faculty, staff, and students, Oxford thrives because of the strong academic profile of its students, the quality of programs that its outstanding faculty and staff members deliver, its stunningly beautiful campus and inclusive community, and the myriad resources available by being an integral part of a top research university.  Oxford provides a distinctive academic experience that draws on strengths as a residential, liberal-arts campus with a philosophy of integrative learning, starting in the classroom and expanding to campus and society.


The ideal candidate will be an effective leader, natural collaborator, and gifted manager with a strategic mindset and keen financial acumen who can effectively advise and partner with College leadership and key stakeholders.  The Senior Associate Dean should have experience with financial analysis and reporting in a higher education environment with knowledge and/or experience of other operational areas, particularly facilities management and information technology.
