Submitted on behalf of Provost Marisa Kelly:
Last year I created (through internal reorganization) the new position of Special Assistant to the Provost. The position, while intended to be ongoing, was a one year appointment in order to give me time to evaluate the specific responsibilities and title. I have now done so and am ready to conduct an internal search for this position.
The position includes a range of responsibilities including interviewing all finalists for ongoing faculty positions, managing the graduate education activities that remain in the Division of Academic Affairs (for example, hooding ceremony; new student orientation), and working collaboratively with Legal Affairs, the Center for Faculty Excellence, and the Office of Human Resources on department chair development opportunities.
This position is open only to tenured faculty members or senior (associate level or above) NTEN faculty. Strong oral communication skills are required. Department chair experience preferred. The appointment will be for three years with the possibility of renewal. Interested individuals should send a letter of interest and an updated vita electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org . Materials should be submitted no later than Wednesday May 1st.
