of transformation and growth.
The University of the Pacific is a nationally ranked private
university with three distinct campuses united under one common
goal: to educate and prepare the leaders of tomorrow through
intensive academic study, experiential learning and service to the
community. In May 2019, the Board of Regents approved the launch of
a new School of Health Sciences. The suite of nine health care
professional programs (Athletic Training, Audiology, Clinical
Nutrition, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy,
Physician Assistant, Social Work and Speech-Language Pathology)
will be housed in the School of Health Sciences.
The School of Health Sciences will provide opportunities for its
faculty to shape the culture and identity of their programs through
greater relative shared governance representation, to have a strong
voice in decision making with other programs of similar size, to
create collaborative learning and student support experiences for
students who will practice together in health care settings, and to
build a cohesive school identity for its students and graduates
reflecting the team based learning and experiences and culture that
the faculty and their students establish. The School of Health
Sciences will ensure that programs, students, faculty and staff are
appropriately administratively supported to achieve their shared
vision for the school.
The successful candidate for Founding Dean will be an innovative,
collaborative, dynamic leader who is able to unite and inspire
administrators, faculty, staff, preceptors and students toward
achievement of the mission and goals of the School while enhancing
and building the culture. The Founding Dean will be the chief
administrative and academic officer of the School and has direct
access to the Provost or other university officials who are
delegated with final responsibility for the University and School.
The Founding Dean will provide leadership in professional health
science education and practice, including research, scholarly
activities and service.
A candidate for Founding Dean, School of Health Sciences must have
a terminal degree in a health science discipline and a strong
understanding of health care systems. The successful candidate will
find an extraordinary opportunity to bring the School of Health
Sciences and its programs to national prominence.
