Dean of the College of Nursing and Health
Loyola University New Orleans seeks an innovative and visionary individual committed to promoting and fostering excellence in teaching, research, professional practice, and service as its next Dean of the College of Nursing and Health (CNH). Loyola University New Orleans is a Jesuit, Catholic University that educates diverse leaders dedicated to academic excellence, social justice, compassion, and service. Consistent with the University’s mission, Loyola University New Orleans welcomes candidates who demonstrate strong commitments to fostering inclusion and equity in a culturally diverse environment.
As the academic and administrative leader of the College, the Dean will inspire a sense of optimism and opportunity in developing new programs and partnerships for the College. Further, the Dean will foster a strong sense of community that is closely tied to and extends the commitment to Ignatian values. This is an exciting opportunity to grow entrepreneurial networks, enhance interactions with other Colleges and schools at Loyola New Orleans, and to take calculated risks to propel CNH and Loyola to national recognition as an entrepreneurial and visionary University. In addition to its well-established programs in nursing, the College includes graduate programs in counseling and the Loyola Institute for Ministry (LIM).
The Dean will be charged with developing a compelling and innovative vision for the future of CNH to assure that the College continues to serve its students with academic programs of the highest quality and effectiveness. The Dean will have the appropriate background and experience to ensure full and robust adherence to all aspects of the state and national accreditation standards to which the College and the University are committed. The Dean sets the standard of intellectual engagement and accomplishment for CNH. The Dean provides strategic vision and operational leadership for the academic and scholarly programs, creating an environment and community that supports the College’s faculty, students, and staff and its partners in the community while promoting excellence in teaching and learning. The Dean has responsibility for the fiscal integrity of the College, providing leadership, and setting an ambitious agenda for fundraising.
In addition to candidates from the faculty and administrative ranks, Loyola University New Orleans is interested in candidates whose vision and experience will lead to broad and inclusive conversations about the range of possibilities, collaborations, and entrepreneurial opportunities that will differentiate the College as a regional and national leader in future-oriented education in the broadly defined area of health professions. The University welcomes candidates both from traditional academic settings in the health professions and from other related and adjacent areas of the healthcare environment.
