This is an exceptional opportunity to join a top school of nursing in the U.S. as the Executive Vice Dean/Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (EVD/SADAA) and Chief Academic Officer within the OHSU School of Nursing.

The School seeks a dynamic, visionary leader to further develop an already strong core of nursing programs. The EVD/SADAA will incorporate the latest trends and strategies and will bridge current and future best practices to build an even more innovative, leading edge nursing school.

The ideal candidate is an innovative, collaborative, servant leader with demonstrated academic administrative leadership. She/he should be positioned for a complex major academic health science university that includes five campuses of the School of Nursing and a University-level Campus for Rural Health. OHSU is an interprofessional and collaborative environment fostering a “team of teams” mentality. The EVD/SADAA joins this environment with the expectation to develop a vision to motivate and work with others to implement and execute new strategies.

The EVD/SADAA reports directly to the Dean of the School. As a member of the dean’s executive team, the EVD/SADAA works closely with other Associate Deans in the School to provide collaborative leadership. In addition, the individual works interprofessionally with peer academic associate deans in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, and Public Health and the College of Pharmacy to bring strategic interprofessional vision to the University.

Noteworthy aspects of the School and University include national recognition for interprofessional education, global partnerships, rural health, and a seamless education pathway for community college students through the BSN. OHSU Hospital holds Magnet designation for nursing excellence, an award given by the American Nurses’ Credentialing Center (ANCC), representing the highest and most prestigious distinction a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and high-quality patient care.
