Applications are now being accepted for the associate vice provost for undergraduate education (AVP-UG) in the University of Wyoming’s Office of Academic Affairs. Deadline to apply is Friday, Feb. 7.
The AVP-UG is a member of Provost Kate Miller’s leadership team and is expected to “provide strong and dynamic leadership to the university’s effort to promote and safeguard academic excellence.” The AVP-UG reports directly to Miller and oversees 200 personnel in five supporting units.
Anne Alexander, the current UW associate vice provost for undergraduate education, will step down and return to the College of Business later this spring as the associate dean and director for the Center for Business and Economic Analysis.
Among other things, the new AVP-UG will be expected to:
-- Demonstrate a commitment to student success and have talent for being able to work within and across academic and administrative units to promote a climate that is optimal for academic and social learning and development.
-- Take a visionary and innovative approach to the structure and function of undergraduate education; be solution-oriented; have leadership styles that influence, inspire and produce results; and have the ability to think critically, work collaboratively and communicate effectively in a complex, changing and challenging landscape.
Among the essential duties of the position are:
-- Provide visionary leadership to support excellence in undergraduate education in accordance with the university’s strategic plan.
-- Administer undergraduate policies related to undergraduate student processes, including, but not limited to, academic dishonesty, grade appeals and classroom grievances.
-- Provide leadership for undergraduate student success and support services, including, but not limited to, coordination of the University Studies Program; oversight of academic programs that report directly to Academic Affairs; and facilitation of processes in proposing, vetting and initiating new undergraduate degrees and certificates.
-- Collaborate with UW officers, administrators and faculty on the development and review of university regulations, policies, procedures and strategic initiatives to enhance undergraduate education, including, but not limited to, those related to academic program review and educational access.
-- Assist deans and programs to ensure productivity and timeliness of student degree completion and student retention, and to implement undergraduate program assessment.
-- Serve as the university’s Higher Learning Commission liaison officer and, where appropriate, represent UW to state committees and initiatives.
