Tulane University seeks a creative, innovative, and strategic leader to serve as the next Dean of the Libraries.
Reporting to the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, the Dean directs an organization that is a critical partner, facilitator, and leader for the intellectual, artistic, and civic engagement of students and faculty at Tulane University and New Orleans. The next Dean will build upon a solid foundation and excellent special and general collections across highly diverse academic areas to collaboratively develop and articulate a comprehensive strategic vision for the Tulane Libraries. Working closely with the Provost and a team of 96 library staff, the next Dean must develop measurable goals and articulate new priorities that will guide the Libraries’ path forward, encompassing both the Tulane Libraries’ role and physical spaces on campus, its relationship to the evolving information landscape, and its home within the multicultural, sophisticated, and vibrant community of New Orleans.
The Dean of the Libraries will be an experienced and effective leader who will be a champion for the centrality of the library in an academic research university. The next Dean will identify creative and effective ways to continue the evolution of the Tulane Libraries with an increasingly global, diverse, and relevant collection of materials accessible through a range of content platforms.
