Executive Vice President and Provost
Sul Ross State University

Sul Ross State University (SRSU) invites applications for the position of Executive Vice President and Provost (referred to later as “provost”). SRSU is a public, comprehensive, master's degree granting, multi-campus university, providing on-site and distance education. The main campus is located in Alpine, Texas. Three additional campuses are located in Del Rio, Eagle Pass, and Uvalde, Texas. The university enrolls approximately 3,000 students. The new provost is expected to begin July 1, 2019.

SRSU is mission focused and student centered. Rooted in the distinctive surroundings and history of the Big Bend and the US-Mexico border regions of Texas, Sul Ross State University provides accessible, comprehensive, and life changing education through high quality teaching, research, cultural awareness, creativity, and service.

The provost is the chief academic officer of the university and will play a significant leadership role on the executive team of President Bill Kibler, who is in his fifth year.

Candidates must have a doctorate or a terminal degree in a field related to one taught at Sul Ross State University; evidence of successful full-time teaching experience at regionally accredited colleges/universities; and a record of progressive advancement in the academy in such positions as department head, dean, or assistant/associate provost (or responsibilities equivalent to assistant/associate provost).

Because Sul Ross State University is part of a state university system yet operates much like an independent, tuition-dependent university, applications are encouraged from candidates with experiences in both the public and private, not-for-profit sectors of higher education. The search committee especially welcomes candidates who are bi-lingual (English and Spanish), women, persons of color, and educators who will fit well with the bi-national culture and heritage of the university's multiple service areas.

A complete profile can be found at https://academic-search.com/sites/default/files/SulRossProvostProfile.pdf. To apply, a candidate should prepare a thoughtful letter of interest addressing, as appropriate, the issues and qualifications described in the search prospectus; a current, long-form resume; and the names, phone numbers, and email addresses of at least five references and the candidate's relationship to each reference. (References will be called at a later stage and only with the candidate's foreknowledge.) Materials should be sent as an e-mail attachment to: srsuprovost@academic-search.com.

For full consideration by the search committee, applications should be submitted by January 21, 2019.
