Dean, College of Arts and Sciences

Search for the Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
University of New Mexico
Albuquerque, New Mexico

New Mexico's flagship R1 university, the University of New Mexico (UNM), seeks a visionary, strategic, innovative, and engaging leader to serve as the next Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The College of Arts and Sciences is the largest degree-granting college and the largest single research unit on UNM's main campus. Spanning 35 departments, several centers and institutes, and 3 museums, the College has already established itself as a catalyst for academic and research excellence and innovation on campus, throughout the state of New Mexico, and in the region. The College now seeks a new Dean to help build on this solid foundation, serving as a champion for the arts and sciences and for the College more broadly within the University and beyond.

UNM provides education to over 25,000 students, more than 80 percent of whom are New Mexico residents. The University has one of the most diverse student bodies of any major research university in the nation and is one of only 21 Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) in the U.S. that has a Carnegie Classification of Highest Research Activity (R1). UNM is ranked among the top 100 Research and Development-Performing Institutions in the U.S. with expenditures of over 300 million dollars annually.

It is a propitious time to join the UNM community as it embarks on UNM 2040 , an ambitious and aspirational vision that will define the long- and short-term objectives for the university. In alignment with these goals, the Dean will ensure the College continues to be at the forefront of liberal arts education, scholarship, and practice in the region, nationally, and globally.

The incoming Dean will partner with and benefit from supportive university leadership, campus stakeholders, and an engaged community of student scholars. The College is also in the midst of a fundraising campaign to renovate its physical facilities and improve the student experience by increasing resources for departments in need, particularly in the humanities.

The incoming Dean has a remarkable opportunity to further this work alongside academic leaders, community partners, and administrative leadership to strengthen the College's reach, scholarship, and impact. The new Dean will bring high academic standards, a record of scholarship, strong management and leadership skills, and an appreciation for transparency and shared governance.
