inaugural role of Vice President for Student Success (VPSS).
Founded in 1820, Indiana University is one of the top public
research universities in the world. IU spans seven campuses,
including core campuses in Bloomington and Indianapolis, two
regional centers in Indiana, and partner locations around the
globe. Innovation, creativity, and academic freedom are hallmarks
of world-class contributions in research and the arts. The IU
community represents a diverse cross-section of people from all
backgrounds and cultures across current students, faculty, and
staff, including more than 71,000 degree-seeking undergraduate
students, more than 19,000 students in graduate and professional
programs, and more than 21,000 faculty and staff.
Reporting directly to President Pamela Whitten and serving on
the President's cabinet, the Vice President for Student Success
will identify areas of strategic opportunity to advance student
success university-wide and will serve as the chief advocate for
student interests in all aspects of decision making. The VPSS will
align policies and practices across all IU campuses in the areas of
student life and student conduct. The VPSS will also lead the
assessment of organizational structures, personnel, and resources
to elevate the student experience at IU, working in close
collaboration with academic leadership.

leader with a deep knowledge of student life issues, best
practices, and future trends; be adept at building consensus among
multiple stakeholders on complex issues; have a successful track
record in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion; and care
