NYU Stern is one of the largest and most multifaceted business schools in the world and has always been among the most innovative schools programmatically. The school has over 5,000 students and a suite of degree and certificate programs including the flagship undergraduate and full-time MBA programs; part-time, Executive and Global Executive MBA programs; a range of MS degrees; and newly-launched one-year specialized MBAs in New York and Executive MBA in Washington DC. Stern is committed to building and enhancing an inclusive and diverse educational community within and across these myriad programs. To support these goals, Stern is pleased to announce the creation of an Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion position.
Reporting directly to the Dean of the School, the Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion will provide strategic leadership in shaping and defining the school’s inclusion, diversity, belonging and equity (IDBE) values and creating initiatives that advance those values for all members of our community including students, faculty and staff. The Associate Dean will serve as a leader, knowledgeable consultant, thoughtful advisor, advocate, catalyst for change, and institutional resource for instilling the school's values of IDBE in our community and tracking progress toward these goals. The selected candidate will help create and enhance a supportive campus climate for underrepresented students and an inclusive student experience. S/he will partner with senior leaders across Stern and NYU to create, implement, and run outreach programs with the goal of increasing the pipelines of candidates from underrepresented groups for Stern programs (from Undergraduate to Ph.D. programs), faculty, and staff positions. S/he will collaborate with faculty leadership to create educational opportunities for faculty on creating inclusive classrooms, utilizing inclusive pedagogies and exploring ways to foster diverse voices and learning styles in the classroom and co-curricular environment. S/he will also develop IDBE resources and support for faculty and staff to effectively work in, manage, and cultivate inclusive and diverse teams. The Associate Dean will also collaborate with leaders in Student Engagement on work with student organizations, students from underrepresented groups, students with a variety of backgrounds and affiliations, and those who are especially committed to diversity and inclusion.
The selected candidate will have an advanced degree (Ph.D. or Ed.D. in leadership, higher education or related field preferred) and 7+ years of successful experience preferably within an academic environment creating, implementing, and overseeing institutional diversity and outreach programs or an equivalent combination of education and experience. S/he will have excellent interpersonal and public communication skills to multiple and diverse audiences, and proven ability to work directly with, and on behalf of, diverse students, faculty, staff, and alumni to advance values of equity, diversity, and inclusion. The ability to be a collaborator and a convener, to work with judiciousness and diplomacy, and the capacity to build bridges and work toward consensus is also essential.
