Marymount University (Arlington, VA), one of the nation’s most innovative and vibrant Catholic institutions, invites applications, expressions of interest, and nominations of candidates for the next Dean of the College of Business, Innovation, Leadership, and Technology (BILT). Marymount seeks an innovative and forward-thinking leader who will build on the strong reputation of the College and support its growth at a time of positive momentum across the University.

Marymount University, a private university, offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in a wide range of disciplines, and serves nearly 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Located just minutes from Washington, D.C., Marymount is classified as a national university, and the University’s diversity is one of its greatest strengths, being ranked 15th nationally in campus ethnic diversity by U.S. News & World Report. Marymount is Virginia’s first and only four-year Hispanic-Serving Institution. The Marymount 2019-2024 strategic plan, Momentum, is guided by the vision for the University to be nationally recognized for innovation and commitment to student success, alumni achievement, and faculty and staff excellence.

The College of BILT houses the School of Business, the School of Technology and Innovation, and the School of Design and Art. The College’s unique combination of schools allows for advanced interdisciplinary integration, fostering innovation with programs geared towards cutting-edge education across domestic and international business and management, information technology, interior architecture, design, art, cybersecurity, and in-demand industry needs. The College offers a robust variety of degrees for undergraduates and graduate students, and 14 certifications across its schools. The School of Design and Art holds interior design accredited through CIDA, and the School of Business is currently accredited through the ACBSP for business administration and is actively progressing towards accreditation through AACSB.

Reporting to Provost Hesham El-Rewini, the Dean of the College of BILT is the chief administrative, academic, and financial officer for the College. In collaboration with the School Directors, the Dean provides leadership, vision, and strategic priorities for all aspects of the College, including curricular programming, scholarship and faculty development, policies and procedures, fundraising, and community engagement. The Dean directs a team of five leaders across the College and oversees a budget of approximately $8 million annually.

The new Dean will have the opportunity to steward and innovate the College’s academic offerings and be a leader of collaboration and action who will foster continued momentum across programs, initiatives, scholarship, community impact, and student outcomes. The new Dean will embrace and embody the mission of the College and cultivate its interdisciplinary focus to enable learners to apply effective practices in business, technology, and creativity for a better global society. The Dean will foster an environment and culture in which widely diverse values, experiences, and ideas are welcomed and viewed as essential in the development of academic excellence. The Dean will have the opportunity to embrace existing community and industry partnerships, while seeking out and establishing new opportunities for program support, resource development, and fundraising.

The ideal candidate will be a collaborative and forward-looking leader and administrator who brings a depth of knowledge and experience in the current issues facing higher education. The ideal candidate will appreciate and be inspired by the uniqueness of the College and thrive on the interdisciplinary possibilities across the areas of business, technology, innovation, and design. The successful candidate will hold a terminal degree, with a doctorate preferred, in one of the academic disciplines of the College along with a record of achievement worthy of appointment as a full professor at the College.
