York College of Pennsylvania seeks a dynamic, solutions-oriented, visionary to serve as the Dean of the Graham School of Business. The new Dean will report to the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs and have the opportunity to develop additional graduate and online programs for the Graham School of Business and for the College.
Located in a wooded area just south of historic downtown York, PA, York College’s three adjacent campuses provide a safe and friendly environment for learning. The College offers more than 60 undergraduate majors; master’s degrees in nursing, business administration, and education; and a doctoral degree in nursing practice. York College offers its 4,200 undergraduates all the benefits of a liberal arts education combined with focused preparation for future professional employment. The College’s graduates are professionals prepared to enter the workforce and able to think critically and creatively.
The Graham School is housed in the recently-opened Willman Business Center, a $17M state of the art facility that offers specialized teaching spaces (including the College’s NASDAQ Trading Lab), a lecture hall, meeting rooms, and a dramatic event venue overlooking the campus and York City. The Business Department at York College is accredited by ACBSP and offers graduate programs in the MBA, Leadership, Accounting, Finance and Integrated Marketing Communication, as well as undergraduate majors in Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, Economics, Engineering Management, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Integrated Marketing Communication, Management, Marketing, Sport Management, and Supply Chain Operations Management.
The Graham School seeks to define itself as a distinctive “school of business”. Facilitating this effort and leading the faculty in this process will be a top priority of the successful candidate. The Dean will be responsible for preparing budgets, serving on the Provost’s and Deans’ Councils, recruiting well-qualified professors, and acting as a spokesperson for the Graham School and liaison with area business leaders. The Dean oversees faculty development to assure the high-quality teaching that is central to York College’s mission. The appointee will have exemplary academic credentials and demonstrate a clear vision for developing an increasingly strong academic program, to move the School of Business toward AACSB accreditation, and to further enhance the long-standing relationships between York College and the local business community.
