Arizona State University (ASU) invites inquiries, nominations, and applications for the position of Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Innovation (COHNI).
A leading public university ranked #1 Most Innovative School by U.S. News & World Report, ASU is realizing a bold reinvention of higher education as the New American University. The College of Nursing and Health Innovation has deep roots at ASU and has successfully prepared graduates for careers in nursing for nearly 60 years. In recent years, the College has expanded its growth and reach, increasing its enrollment and adding innovative new undergraduate, masters, and certificate programs that equip healthcare professionals to best respond to the challenges of the dynamic healthcare landscape and meet the evolving needs of patients in Arizona and beyond. It is an exciting time in the College's history, and the incoming Dean will be expected to address new opportunities to help shepherd the College into its next iteration of growth and elevate CONHI to new levels of excellence.
As the chief academic and executive officer of the College, the Dean will advance CONHI's excellence in research and scholarship along with its outstanding education programs. S/he will steward a diverse and innovative array of educational programs and expand CONHI's capacity for scholarly contributions to the field. The Dean must also be a visible leader and advocate for the College and will build cross-cutting collaborations that embody the College's commitment to interprofessional healthcare practice, education, and research. In order to fuel the College's aspirations, the Dean will be tasked with both strategic and creative management of existing resources and with building earned revenue through the development of new programs and fund development. Arizona is facing a nursing shortage of an estimated 28,000 nurses by 2025; the Phoenix area is also home to a booming healthcare market in an incredibly diverse region. The Dean will leverage this dynamic environment, deepening existing ties with current public and private sector partners, and identifying new areas of collaboration in Phoenix, around the country, and internationally.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated leadership in teaching, research and public service; administrative experience in higher education in nursing; the ability to build effective partnerships across professional disciplines; proven experience in conducting and publishing research; success in generating resources; and a record of commitment to a diverse and multicultural university. S/he must have a PhD in nursing or a related field and academic credentials commensurate with appointment at the tenure-track rank of full professor.
