The City College of New York (CCNY) seeks an exceptional individual to serve as the first Dean of the Colin L. Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership. As the chief academic officer for the Powell School, the Dean will set the standard for intellectual engagement and accomplishment and provide strategic and operational leadership to all aspects of the academic and scholarly programs.

In concert with the faculty, the Dean will be responsible for student success and faculty recruitment, retention, and diversity and will also promote a strong research agenda for faculty and oversee the establishment of new disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs.
CCNY is a comprehensive teaching, research, and service institution dedicated to accessibility and excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. Long the flagship campus of the City University of New York public university system with over 16,000 students and about 600 full-time faculty, CCNY provides its diverse student body opportunities to achieve academically, creatively, and professionally in the liberal arts and sciences and in professional fields such as engineering, education, architecture, and biomedical education. The Powell School, a unit of the College of Liberal Arts and Science, comprises five academic departments (Anthropology, Economics, Sociology, Political Science, and Psychology), six interdisciplinary programs (International Studies, International Relations, Latin American and Latino Studies, Pre-Law, Public Service Management, and Women's Studies), and the Skadden Arps Honors Program in Legal Studies. In addition, the School houses the Dominican Studies Institute.

The Division offers undergraduate degrees in all of its departments as well as in Latino Studies, International Studies, and Pre-Law. Master's degree programs are offered in Economics, International Relations, Counseling Psychology, Sociology, Psychology, and Public Administration. In addition, the City University of New York Ph.D. program in Clinical Psychology is housed at City College. Social Science faculty members contribute to a number of other doctoral programs located at the CUNY Graduate School and University Center. The successful candidate will be an energetic, self-assured academic leader and scholar of stature, able to inspire faculty and students with a sense of pride and purpose, serve as an innovative leader to grow and build high quality programs, and provide a dedicated and established commitment to both undergraduate and graduate education. The Dean will be a visionary in helping the School to realize its academic and scholarly mission, to engage its distinguished alumni and local community, and to guide the School to new levels of achievement and renown. This position is in CUNY's Executive Compensation Plan. All executive positions require a minimum of a Bachelor's degree and eight years' related experience.
