Saint Anselm College, a Catholic, Benedictine liberal arts
institution, seeks an experienced academic administrator to serve
as its next Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA). The
next Vice President for Academic Affairs will join the College
community to build on the College’s history of success while
positioning it solidly for the next decade.
The Vice President for Academic Affairs will be a visible leader
on campus, with an impressive record of scholarship and teaching.
The VPAA must be a seasoned administrator with experience in higher
education who can build upon Saint Anselm’s legacy while providing
vision and leadership to foster academic excellence and innovation
and fulfill the College’s Catholic, Benedictine mission.
The VPAA oversees all academic deans, departments, and programs
as well as a variety of academic support functions. The VPAA will
work alongside a highly talented and passionate faculty to ensure
that academic affairs plays a central role in recruiting, retaining
and serving students at the College. The scope of the role includes
almost 2,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students;
over 90 academic programs; nearly 221 faculty (full- and
part-time); and 85 administrators/staff.
Ideal candidates will have experience in thinking creatively and
implementing new academic programs, strengthening existing programs
for todays’ students, while building consensus across the College
community and staying true to the academic mission of promoting a
transformative living/learning environment to develop engaged
citizen-leaders who think critically, demonstrate empathy, and are
committed to social justice and the common good.
What makes an Anselmian education distinctive and exceptional
are students’ deep involvement and integrative growth guided by a
Benedictine-inspired educational philosophy. For more information,
