Greetings from Syracuse University!

We are conducting a search for Syracuse University’s next Vice Chancellor, Provost, and Chief Academic Officer. We have assembled a diverse team of dedicated faculty, students, staff and alumni who will work closely with the search firm, WittKeiffer, to identify exceptional candidates for this position.

We seek candidates who value the breadth and depth of Syracuse University’s research and teaching mission and can build on its existing strengths, while also helping us develop new areas of excellence. Syracuse University offers the best of an intense and intimate teaching environment oriented toward students at all levels and from all backgrounds and a world-class research setting focused on addressing the major challenges of our times.

As an institution, Syracuse University offers excellence in traditional academic fields and in a number of professional programs. In addition to our main campus in Syracuse, New York, the university runs programming at our regional campuses across the U.S. and in our highly regarded Study Abroad centers. We have made bold and visionary investments in interdisciplinary research around pressing issues like social justice, big data, emerging technologies and biomaterials, as well as in undergraduate research opportunities and other student-oriented initiatives.

We seek a Vice Chancellor, Provost, and Chief Academic Officer who is as excited as we are about Syracuse University’s commitment to being a student-oriented research university, to conducting socially relevant and impactful research, to encouraging creative innovations by our faculty, students and staff, and to serving our students, both on and beyond our main campus.

We look forward to finding our next Vice Chancellor, Provost, and Chief Academic Officer and thank you for any help you can give in that process.
