Columbus State University
Provost and Executive Vice President

President, Stuart Rayfield, and the search committee invite nominations and applications for the position of Provost and Executive Vice President (Provost) of Columbus State University (CSU). This is an excellent opportunity for an accomplished academic leader who is inspired by CSU's emphasis on excellence in lifelong learning, community engagement, cultural enrichment, teaching and research, and service to others.

Located just 100 miles southwest of Atlanta, CSU is part of the University System of Georgia. Each year, CSU enrolls more than 7,000 students from the Southeast, across the nation, and around the world. Columbus is a vibrant and diverse community offering a low cost of living, world-class museums, celebrated arts and culture, and amazing recreational opportunities.

With two campuses, exceptional facilities, ideal class sizes, and unique field experiences, CSU students have room to create. CSU provides students with academic enrichment opportunities beyond the classroom through the Bo Bartlett Center, the Center for Global Engagement, the Carson McCullers Center, the TSYS Center for Cybersecurity, the Coca-Cola Space Science Center, Oxbow Meadows, and Pasaquan. These learning laboratories offer student opportunities for research, engagement, and community projects. At CSU, every faculty and staff member are part of the educational process, actively mentoring students and championing each new step in the journey.

In its next provost, CSU seeks a servant leader with a deep commitment to the mission, vision, and values of the university as well as the enthusiasm, energy, and optimism for the work ahead. A proven record of successful, progressive leadership in a university of similar size and complexity is a must. In addition, the provost will possess an earned doctorate or terminal degree; a record of teaching, publication, and service that would warrant appointment as a tenured full professor in an academic department at CSU; experience with the tenure and promotion process; a commitment to shared governance; superior communication skills; and proven financial acumen with evidence of strategic resource allocation in a complex environment.

Confidential inquiries, nominations, and applications are invited. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. For fullest consideration, application materials should be received no later than March 1, 2024. Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae and a letter of application that addresses the priorities outlined in the search profile. Nominations and application materials should be sent electronically via email to CSU's search consultant Ann Yates at .
