Oakland University, a doctoral research university, seeks an energetic leader who fosters innovation and collaboration to serve as Dean of University Libraries at a vibrant, growing institution. The ideal candidate will continue the Libraries’ strong momentum of integrating teaching, information, and technology to create dynamic, welcoming learning environments. Recent enhancements to the Libraries—including the launch of an institutional repository and the expansion of its credit-bearing information literacy course—underscore this exciting opportunity to broaden the Libraries' role as a central pillar upon which the University can advance its educational, research, and public-service goals.
The Dean provides vision and leadership in all aspects of library administration and is responsible for developing strong collaborative relationships within the university and surrounding communities, fostering the professional growth and development of library faculty and staff, and integrating the Libraries into the intellectual life of the university. Oakland University librarians have faculty status, and the successful candidate will have a record of academic and professional achievement that warrants tenure at a senior academic rank. This position reports to the Provost and Senior Vice-President for Academic Affairs and serves on the Deans Council and other leadership teams.
Oakland University is a Carnegie-designated doctoral research, state-assisted institution dedicated to delivering a distinctive undergraduate experience to more than 20,000 students, complemented by the strength of its graduate offerings and research accomplishments. The university offers more than 260 academic and professional programs at the baccalaureate, masters and doctoral levels, and in the spring of 2015 will conduct commencement exercises for its first graduating class of the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. Over the last five years, Oakland has seen an 11 percent increase in student enrollment and has invested more than $200 million in campus infrastructure and technology resources. The university is situated in Oakland County, which features beautiful state parks and vibrant urban communities. It is located 25 miles north of Detroit in the Rochester Hills area, which was recently ranked by Money Magazine as one of the 10 best places to live in the U.S. The campus features 1,443 acres of wooded hills and meadows.
