Dean of Education and Human Development Search

We are supporting the University of North Dakota (UND) in their search for a visionary leader and an accomplished teacher and scholar to serve as Dean of the College of Education and Human Development, and we write today in the hope that you may have a personal interest in learning more about this opportunity — or that within your professional network you may know of an established or emerging leader who would be a great Dean for UND.
The College of Education and Human Development (EHD) is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in the region.  EHD comprises five departments: Counseling Psychology and Community Services (which also includes Recreation and Tourism Studies and Rehabilitation and Human Services); Educational Foundations and Research; Educational Leadership; Physical Education, Exercise Science, and Wellness; and Teaching and Learning.  Also affiliated with the College are the Center for Rural Education and Communities, the Bureau of Educational Services and Applied Research, and the University Children’s Center.  The College is located in a beautiful newly constructed and renovated building, designed for LEED Silver certification and equipped with state-of-the-art technology that gives its programs world-wide reach.
The Dean is the chief academic, personnel, financial and administrative officer for the College and reports to the Provost.  The Dean provides leadership to over 100 faculty and staff, administers the College according to its bylaws, and is responsible for managing an annual budget of more than $10 million.  The ideal candidate will be a creative, inspiring, and energetic leader, who can advance the College’s mission in education, service, and research; a skilled administrator who values collaborative governance and student-centeredness; and a visionary who is informed on the emerging trends in the College’s fields, especially as they affect rural areas.
The University of North Dakota, one of the nation’s premier regional public research universities, is a comprehensive teaching and research university with approximately 14,696 students.  Located in Grand Forks, the third largest city in North Dakota, with a campus spanning 550 acres, UND has a strong liberal arts foundation alongside a variety of professional and specialized programs.  UND is one of only 47 public universities in the nation with accredited professional schools of both law and medicine.  The graduate school has over 2,673 students and grants degrees in 57 masters and 25 doctoral fields.  The University is admired for its spacious, beautiful campus and extensive resources.  UND has earned an international reputation for its academic and research programs.
