Click here to view the entire position profile.

Location: Laramie, Wyoming

The Position:

The University of Wyoming invites applications/nominations for the position of Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. As it looks towards the future, UW seeks to advance its competitive position by graduating students prepared to be successful leaders in a global and diverse world. UW is committed to fostering a strong campus culture rooted in inclusive excellence that welcomes and supports students, staff, and faculty of all backgrounds.

Reporting directly to the President of the University, the VP for DEI will be provided the staff and budgetary resources necessary to lead UW’s many inclusive excellence initiatives. Working with fellow Vice Presidents as a part of the President’s executive council, the VP for DEI will oversee and lead UW’s ongoing efforts to develop inclusion as one of the four pillars supporting and sustaining the university into the future.

For this position, UW seeks a person with superb interpersonal skills and robust leadership capabilities who is able to work well with and advocate for a range of constituents both inside and outside of the university community to further UW’s commitment to inclusive excellence. This role holds a unique place in the state of Wyoming with the potential to engage various partners across the state to lead broad and meaningful outreach efforts to further diversity, equity, and inclusion for communities throughout Wyoming. Accordingly, UW seeks candidates with substantial experience working with diverse communities of all types, and who have demonstrated success leading initiatives to foster and sustain diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels of an institution and with a variety of constituents and communities.

Like all executive administrative positions at UW, the VP of DEI position is at-will. To the extent the successful candidate is qualified such that a tenured faculty position within one of UW’s existing programs is a possibility, we are open to a dual appointment as both a VP and a faculty member.
