Job Description & How to Apply Below
Vice Dean of Barrett, The

Honors College

Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University seeks an

experienced leader for the position of Vice Dean. The Vice Dean

works with the Dean as the primary overseers, planners and

caretakers of the 7,200-student honors college.

Barrett Honors College is a selective residential college within

Arizona State University with a separate application process that

is an option for academically-motivated students after acceptance

into ASU (see "href="">).

Named one of the top honors colleges in the nation by several

reviews and "the gold standard for honors colleges" by the NY

Times, Barrett comprises what by many measures of academic quality

are the top 10% of the undergraduate students at ASU. There is a

Barrett community on each of the four ASU campuses in the Phoenix

area, with the largest at Tempe, and each offers what is called

"the best of both worlds": the caring and support of a residential

college coupled with the vast resources of one of the nation's

largest public universities. That combination attracts large

numbers of gifted students: Barrett has one of the highest success

rates in the country with nationally-competed scholarships such as

Fulbright, Marshall, Goldwater, Udall, Schwarzman, Mitchell and

Boren. Furthermore, Barrett students move on to the top

professional schools and graduate programs in the nation after


Arizona State University is a new model for American higher

education, an unprecedented combination of academic excellence,

entrepreneurial energy and broad access. It serves more than 90,000

students in metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona, the nation's fifth

largest city. ASU champions intellectual and cultural diversity,

and welcomes students from all fifty states and more than one

hundred nations across the globe. ASU has been advancing for the

last 15 years under President Michael Crow, adding 5 Nobel Prize

winners and multiple National Academy members to its faculty, at

least 50 new building projects to its facilities, and entirely new

academic schools and colleges. This expansion has resulted in large

increases in federal and private grants and national and

international accolades (see "


including the "#1 Most Innovative" university in the nation for

three straight years awarded by US News.

The Vice Dean of Barrett oversees the honors curriculum, both as

provided by the 42 Barrett honors faculty themselves and as

provided by the almost 2000 faculty from the larger ASU who

contribute honors courses, contracts and thesis direction to the

honors students each year. The Vice Dean interacts directly with

the honors faculty on all four campuses, overseeing teaching and

research allocation of time and space, faculty governance issues

and faculty community-building. The Vice Dean builds programs to

address student needs for research opportunities and funding, and

co-leads the College Inclusion initiatives. The Vice Dean also

steps in and represents the college at many university events and

committee meetings, and operates the college when the Dean is away

on college business.

The ideal candidate will be a tenured faculty member with a PhD

with experience with honors students and honors programs. S(he)

will have the ability to articulate a compelling vision for a

culture of academic excellence and the skill to engage the honors

and university communities around this vision. S(he) must have

experience supervising a staff and the ability to develop collegial

and productive relationships across the university.

Nominations, expressions of interest and applications (CV,

letter of interest and contact information for three professional

references) should be sent to: .

Questions about the position may be addressed to Dean Mark Jacobs,

at the same email address. To receive full consideration,

applications should be received by February 19, 2018. Review of

applications will continue until the position is filled. It is

expected that the Vice Dean will be appointed by the middle of

April 2018.
