- A scholar who values the important role of faculty, the culture of each discipline, and shared governance, and who is respectful of diverse views and opinions. A highly motivated, innovative leader and visionary who has a comprehensive understanding of higher education and is experienced in all aspects of teaching and learning. An advocate for student-centered learning both on campus and online, with a passion for the College’s open-access mission and the role this mission plays in higher education. A leader in embracing the College’s Strategic Plan and its commitment to building a culture of engagement. A collaborative partner who works with everyone in the campus community to ensure student success and maintain high levels of quality in the undergraduate and graduate programs. A strong advocate for Peru State College, partnering with the President in outreach and campus engagement.
Requirements for the position include:
- An earned doctorate from a regionally accredited institution. A proven record of teaching excellence and scholarly achievement. A career of progressively responsible academic leadership and administrative experience at the level of dean or above.
