Purdue University Northwest (PNW) invites applications for an exceptional academic leader to serve as Chair of the Department of Communication and Creative Arts with an expected start date of July 1, 2022. The chair will provide strategic leadership to a diverse department and will work with faculty, staff, and students to build upon the department’s strengths in teaching, research, and service.

Applicants should have academic credentials commensurate with appointment to the rank of associate or professor with tenure.  Applicants also must have supervisory administrative experience that may include managing budgets, promoting the professional development of faculty and staff, assessing academic programs, establishing interdepartmental and interdisciplinary collaborations, and facilitating the department’s contributions and outcomes consistent with the university’s strategic goals.

The chair will be an individual with a national reputation who will contribute to one or more of the department’s core areas of research and teaching, have an active research agenda, and evidence of a strong record of teaching effectiveness, including mentoring graduate students. The ideal candidate will demonstrate an ability to work cooperatively with faculty and students; to provide leadership in realizing the strategic vision of the university, college, and department; to promote the humanities and social sciences in a STEM-rich university environment; to address various challenges of public higher education; and to cultivate civic engagement in the local community through partnerships and collaborations.


 It is expected that the chair will be engaged in scholarship or creative activities that attract external funding (e.g., fellowships, grants) and to provide leadership to increase the faculty’s external funding. The chair will develop external relationships that help to further the research, teaching, and service outcomes of faculty. The chair will also have service duties, including program-building, as well as commitment to extra-curricular activities.
