Texas Christian University (TCU) invites nominations and expressions of interest for the position of Dean of Undergraduate Admission. The University seeks a collaborative and visionary leader who has a proven record of managing and motivating a large team of individuals responsible for the recruitment of undergraduate students.

TCU is classified by U.S. News & World Report as a Tier 1 university and a Doctoral/Research university by the Carnegie Foundation. The Carnegie Commission lists TCU's undergraduate profile as “More Selective”, its highest ranking.  TCU is located in Fort Worth, Texas, the 16th largest city in the U.S. (located in a metropolitan area of more than 6 million), a city known for its vibrant economy, cultural district, and world-class arts and entertainment venues.  

 Attracting top students from across the U.S. and internationally, TCU is the home to approximately 8,900 undergraduates, nearly 50% of whom reside on campus. The University encompasses eight colleges and schools and will soon include a medical school operated in partnership with the University of North Texas Health Science Center, also located in Fort Worth. The current graduate/professional population of TCU will increase from 1,500 to approximately 1,800 with the inclusion of medical students. The undergraduate experience offers multiple avenues for pursuing excellence in academic research and experiential learning. The undergraduate academic and co-curricular program is closely aligned with the University’s distinctive emphasis on ethical leadership and responsible citizenship in a global context.

 The new Dean will continue the upward trajectory of selectivity and quality which has defined TCU over the last decade. Through the use of analytics and data analysis the Dean will lead a large and diverse recruiting team expected to attract matriculates who will enhance TCU’s already strong academic reputation. The successful candidate will be a recognized admission professional with a strong record of success and professional accomplishment.

Munson, Chair, Dean of Undergraduate Admission Search Committee (  While applications and nominations will be accepted until a new Dean is selected, interested parties are encouraged to submit their materials to our consultant at the address below by March 30th to assure optimal consideration.  Application materials should include a current resume and a letter of interest.
