Position Details

The University of Pittsburgh announces the search for the next president of its regional campuses at Bradford and Titusville and invites applications, nominations, and expressions of interest. The next president of Pitt-Bradford and Pitt-Titusville will have the opportunity to drive educational innovation and advancement at student-centered campuses that are integral components of their communities. Nestled among the rolling hills of Northwestern Pennsylvania, the campuses are each situated within a larger region of spectacular natural beauty and outdoor recreation.

Pitt-Bradford, a four-year undergraduate institution of some 1,300 students, is a friendly, tight-knit campus community with strong ties to the Bradford region. Pitt-Titusville, a two-year institution, has nearly 300 students and, like Bradford, is an intimate campus deeply rooted in its community. While each campus has a different academic mission, they share a strong commitment to the success of a diverse student body and an enviable record of achievement. 

Pitt-Bradford was born from an entrepreneurial spirit and strong local support, and those characteristics continue to exemplify the campus. The development of the campus has been guided by careful strategic planning and fundraising. High academic standards, challenging and nurturing academic programs, and high-quality, teaching-oriented faculty have always been hallmarks of the campus. TheBestColleges ranked it among the top ten regional campuses in the United States and President Obama selected it as one of 13 institutions which excel in enrolling and graduating Pell-eligible students. 

Titusville is a small institution that does an admirable job educating the students of the region, including students who are academically at risk. Pitt-Titusville’s associate’s-degree programs require a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, and the campus has excellent lab facilities, which facilitate its strength in health-related programs. 

The successful candidate will be expected to provide creative and inspirational leadership to both institutions. This opportunity requires an individual who is strongly student-centered; enjoys and works well in close, collegial academic communities; and is unequivocally committed to making a difference in the lives of students and the region.
