Vice President for Marketing and Communications

Haverford College invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice President for Marketing and Communications (VPMC).

Inspired by our mission and aligned with our values of trust, concern, and respect, this individual will be the College’s chief communications strategist charged with developing and deploying marketing and messaging that strengthen college operations; enhance the College’s stature and visibility as a pre-eminent values-based, national liberal arts college; and support student recruitment as well as alumni/constituent relations. As a member of President Wendy Raymond’s Senior Staff, the VPMC will provide vision, insight, and collaboration on issues affecting the entire college, including via the VPMC’s role in co-staffing the Board of Managers’ External Affairs Committee.

Haverford’s mission and values, superbly talented faculty, students, and staff, and proximity to the vibrant city of Philadelphia distinguish us from most small liberal arts colleges. Leveraging these assets is at the heart of our new strategic plan—Better Learning, Broader Impact – Haverford 2030. The plan, adopted in December 2022, is foundational to our next fundraising campaign and chapter of institutional development, leading us into Haverford’s third century.

The ideal candidate for the newly created role of VPMC will be a creative, collaborative team player. President Raymond seeks a person who will thrive as an individual leader as well as across many partnerships, including with Senior Staff, the College Communications team, Board of Managers, and across students, faculty, and staff, as well as alums, families, and friends. The VPMC should be comfortable with the unknown and unexpected – a fundamental aspect of contemporary higher education – ready to lead and adapt proactively and responsively to advance Haverford College’s strategic goals.

This is a full-time position on the Haverford College campus in Haverford, PA. The expected salary range for this position is $225,000 - $240,000, commensurate with experience. Haverford College offers an excellent benefits package that includes full family medical (including HSA contributions toward the deductible), dental, vision, and an automatic 10% 403b College retirement contribution as well as other great benefits such as 23 days vacation and 16 paid holidays.
