The University of Dayton (UD) seeks a visionary and strategic leader to serve as the inaugural Executive Director (ED) of the University's Hanley Sustainability Institute (HSI). This is an exceptional opportunity for a collaborative and innovative individual to join an inclusive and collegial community to advance UD's aspiration to become a national leader in sustainability education and research through the leadership of this interdisciplinary institute.

The inaugural Executive Director joins UD at an important moment in its history. Eric F. Spina, PhD, formerly the vice chancellor and provost at Syracuse University, became the 19th President of UD in 2016. President Spina arrived with an ambitious agenda and spent his first year bringing the historically collaborative community together in a visioning process that has positioned the University for years to come. President Spina has signaled strongly that sustainability will play a significant role in that vision and the ED will be an influential leader across campus and the Dayton community on these issues.
UD enrolls 10,828 students, including 7,890 full-time undergraduates, and is one of the nation's largest Catholic universities and the largest private university in Ohio. A Catholic Marianist institution, UD provides education to develop the whole student and is committed to experiential learning. The University comprises five academic units: the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Business Administration, Education and Health Sciences, Engineering, and Law. It is also the home of the nationally-recognized University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI).

A generous gift from the George and Amanda Hanley Foundation established HSI in September of 2014 to further decades of sustainability-related work with the ambitious goal of making UD a leader in sustainability. Since its founding, HSI has developed a cross-disciplinary network of innovative researchers and educators, stimulating and supporting dynamic collaboration among many units on campus. As is the culture at UD, students have responded with enthusiasm and are involved at all levels of HSI. A unique and distinctive aspect of the institute is its many student-initiated and student-operated programs.

The Executive Director will be a visible leader working closely with senior leadership, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Associate Dean for Interdisciplinary Research and Experiential Initiatives. The Executive Director will work collaboratively to establish the vision and research focus of the Institute; foster widespread faculty and student engagement; build research capacity among the faculty; nurture broader community relationships; engage stakeholders across the University and serve as a campus leader around areas of sustainability; and fundraise in support of the Institute. The Executive Director will join a talented and dedicated team that is deeply engaged with teaching, research, service, and linking the mission of the Institute across campus. Contingent on qualifications, the Executive Director may be appointed at a tenured faculty rank (associate or full professor) in the appropriate academic department at the University of Dayton.

A representative Search Committee has been convened to conduct the search and to recommend finalists to the provost. All applications, inquiries, and nominations should be directed to Isaacson, Miller through this website: www.imsearch.com/6089<http://www.imsearch.com/6089>.

*         A demonstrated record of leadership success and administrative experience in higher education, not-for-profit, or government organizations

*         Experience supervising faculty or professional staff

*         Experience developing budgets and managing program expenses
