The George Washington University (GW), a major research university three blocks from the White House, seeks its second Dean for its rapidly expanding School of Nursing (GWSON). The School is young, genuinely entrepreneurial, and is distinguishing itself as a school at the intersection of nursing education and health care policy. Grounded in the strength and commitment of its nursing faculty, the GWSON is deliberately interdisciplinary; many SON faculty members have backgrounds beyond the nursing field and the School already has a record of interdisciplinary leadership on campus. This Deanship offers an unparalleled opportunity to take a fast-growing school—vibrant with a spirit of innovation and collaboration—to its next level.
The next Dean, guided by the School’s strategic plan and leading with a spirit of inclusiveness, will decide which of myriad opportunities to pursue, thereby shaping the GWSON for the future. The Dean will be an inspiring and strong coalition builder and a creative thinker who can sustain and expand upon the School’s already impressive success.
The Dean reports to the Provost and oversees a growing team on two campuses. Successful candidates should hold a doctorate in nursing or related field, have prior experience in academic administration, and a record of scholarship, teaching, and service appropriate for appointment as a tenured full professor at the George Washington University.
To Apply: All nominations and inquiries should be sent in confidence to: Philip Jaeger, Vice President and Director, or Natalie Leonhard, Senior Associate, Isaacson, Miller, 1300 19th Street, N.W., Suite 700, Washington, D.C. 20036, or GWUNursingDean@imsearch.com. Electronic submissions strongly preferred.
The George Washington University is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action (EEO/AA) employer.
