Dean, School of NursingPhiladelphia, Pennsylvania
The University of Pennsylvania seeks an eminent, energetic, strategic, judicious, and collaborative academic leader to serve as its next Dean of the School of Nursing. Reporting to Penn President Amy Gutmann and Provost Vincent Price, the Dean is charged with maintaining the highest standards of teaching and scholarship, and further increasing the eminence and leadership of Penn Nursing and its ability to advance nursing science, education, and practice. As a senior member of the Penn leadership team, the Dean will work closely and collaboratively with the nursing faculty, the President, the Provost, the deans of Penn’s other eleven schools, and other senior officers in furtherance of the University’s academic and institutional goals, including increasing access, integrating knowledge, and engaging locally and globally, as expressed in the Penn Compact.
The School of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania is dedicated to “changing the world through the science of nursing.” Working within one of the nation’s leading centers of health care and biomedical research, Penn Nursing derives excellence and strength from the unusually fertile environment for research that exists at Penn. The School’s 1,128 students learn from a globally-renowned faculty and teaching staff that totals 340, including standing faculty, associated faculty, and academic support staff. These students gain valuable clinical experiences in two of the nation's best medical institutions. The School of Nursing is a model for curricular innovation with its unique undergraduate curriculum, as well as joint degree offerings and interdisciplinary educational experiences with the School of Arts and Sciences, the Wharton School, the Law School, the Perelman School of Medicine, and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
The successful Dean candidate will embrace diversity in the broadest sense and present a distinguished record of achievement in research, education, and administration. She or he will demonstrate impeccable academic judgment and an uncompromising commitment to academic excellence, a commitment to diversity in all its forms, an unwavering ethical compass, and a deep commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration. An articulate and enthusiastic communicator, the Dean will be able to develop and implement a strategic vision for the School’s future consonant with the Penn Compact, establish and pursue clear strategic priorities, and manage resources effectively to steadily advance those priorities. Candidates must possess the academic credentials and experience that clearly qualify them for appointment as a full professor with tenure in the School and an eminent leader of the faculty.
In accordance with regulatory requirements and accreditation standards, the next Dean must be a registered nurse (RN) who holds both a graduate degree in nursing and a doctoral degree.
