Vice President of the Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity
Towson University

Towson University (TU) has partnered with WittKieffer to conduct the search for the Vice President (VP) of the Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity (OIIE). Diversity, equity and inclusion are more than ideals at TU, they are part of our Strategic Plan to help build a stronger foundation for a promising future. Supporting TU’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, OIIE has earned regional and national recognition for its ongoing diversity and inclusion efforts and outcomes. These include the first Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award in 2020 and NCAA & Minority Opportunities Athletic Association (MOAA) 2021 Award for Diversity and Inclusion. Additionally TU was named among the top 10 most successful institutions when it comes to enrolling and graduating traditional-aged Black undergraduates, boasting one of the largest and most academically successful Black undergraduate populations nationally.

TU is Maryland’s university of opportunities and known as a leader in academic excellence, research and discovery. With more than 150 years of experience pushing possibilities, TU is ranked by U.S. News & World Report in the top 100 for public national universities. Located on a 330-acre campus in Towson, Maryland, just 10 miles from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and a short drive or train ride to Washington, D.C., Philadelphia or New York City, TU offers unmatched opportunities to engage with the state and federal government, elected officials, worldwide embassies, think tanks, the national media and other influencers of public policy in addition to endless cultural, recreational and entertainment attractions.

The VP OIIE leads university-wide efforts to advance inclusion and institutional equity at TU. Reporting directly to the President, the VP serves as a member of the President’s Cabinet and works closely with the Provost, Deans, Divisional Vice Presidents, and the campus community to provide strategic direction and vision for diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. The VP is responsible for leading efforts to strengthen TU’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; implementing institutional change necessary to demonstrate the continued commitment; ensuring regulatory compliance to include Title IX, Title VII and ADA and for expanding and continuing to provide a campus call to action to create and sustain an inclusive campus community.

The successful candidate will be a passionate, accomplished, and committed leader who can continue the momentum on TU’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The VP will bring proven work experience in Title IX, Title VII, and ADA as well as work with individuals affected by sexual assault, domestic violence, sexual harassment, and/or gender discrimination. As a leader, the VP will demonstrate an ability to build and develop relationships, work collaboratively, mediate controversy, and inspire confidence. The ability to maintain confidentiality and exercise discretion is critical to this role. A terminal degree and experience leading DEI initiatives in a Higher Education environment is preferred.

For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by October 18, 2021. Candidates should provide a resume or curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the leadership profile and the names and contact information of five professional references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates.
