Status: Accepting applications
Vice President and Associate Provost for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion & Chief Diversity Officer
Gallaudet University
Washington, DC
Gallaudet University invites applications for the position of Vice President and Associate Provost for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (VPAPEDI). The VPAPEDI will serve as the campus Chief Diversity Officer (CDO), aligned with a "hybrid" collaborative, unit-based, and portfolio style CDO leadership model. The VPAPEDI position is a senior, cabinet-level position jointly reporting to the university President and Provost, and independently consulting with the Board of Trustees. In reporting to the President, the VPAPEDI will address staff and administrative concerns; in reporting to the Provost, the VPAPEDI will engage student, faculty, curricular, and scholarship concerns.

The ideal candidate for the VPAPEDI position will have excellent relational skills and bring renewed energy, fresh perspectives, and innovative ideas. The campus has prioritized hiring a community builder who can be described as open-minded, approachable, empathetic, having heart, flexible, a listener, adaptive, an ambassador, and collaborative, as well as courageous, resourceful, adept at conflict negotiation, action-oriented, and an advocate.

Fluency in American Sign Language (ASL) and written English are strongly preferred. Willingness to work toward the development of ASL proficiency and English literacy within two years of assuming the VPAPEDI position is required. To facilitate this development, the university will provide the selectee intensive ASL and English literacy instruction and on-campus housing to create as close to a second language learning immersion experience as is possible.

The ideal candidate will possess a doctorate, with areas of primary expertise in diversity-related higher education leadership, multicultural organizational development, diversity training, social justice education, language learning, international relations, intergroup dialogue, cross-cultural counseling, and/or related fields. She/he will also have an academic profile (including an established, relevant research agenda and success in collegiate teaching) worthy of tenure at the rank of associate or full professor. The candidate will also have demonstrated effective experience in: evidence-based decision making; budgeting; grant-making; staff supervision and management; policy development; equity compliance, mediation, conflict resolution, collective bargaining, and risk reduction; employee and student recruitment, retention, and programming; faculty, staff, and student development; public relations and marketing; purchasing and supplier diversity; multicultural curriculum development and implementation; and diversity-related assessment and evaluation. Candidates who can demonstrate competency in all twelve of the Standards of Professional Practice for Chief Diversity Officers (CDO) established by the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE) in 2014 (, but who may not possess all of the afore-referenced ideal candidate credentials will be considered.

The VPAPEDI must employ a walk around style of leadership in engaging with university stakeholder and constituent groups, both on and off campus. It is of paramount importance that the selectee makes herself/himself available to students, and is willing to dedicate time to interacting with students in the residence hall context, as well as during evening and weekend activities and events.

The VPAPEDI position search will begin in June of 2015 and conclude in December of 2015. Applications/nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled. Screening of candidates will begin in August of 2015. Candidate finalists will be invited for campus interviews in November of 2015. The selected candidate will begin work at the outset of the Spring 2016 academic semester.
