Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to share that the Provost's Office is accepting applications for a new leadership position, the Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. In partnership with the University's Chief Diversity Officer, Drexel's colleges and schools, and the Provost's Office team, the Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will lead campus-wide initiatives to build a diverse, equitable and welcoming campus community. The role will focus on DEI initiatives such as those related to faculty advancement and curricular programming, and is critical to supporting the University's Strategic Plan. The new Vice Provost will also be an advocate for the University's role as an anchor institution in our local community.

In addition to recruiting externally, we hope to generate a strong internal candidate pool for this position. Colleagues with a passion for developing robust inclusion and diversity initiatives through an intersectional lens are encouraged to apply. View the job posting here.
