Adler University (AU), an institution that is a fierce champion of social justice, seeks their next Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (VPDEI). AU educates students to engage the world and create a more just society. Established in 1952, it enrolls more than 1,800 students in master’s and doctoral programs for social change through its campuses in downtown Chicago and Vancouver, as well as an Online campus.
The VPDEI will work with the university’s stakeholders as it seeks to build on its social justice mission and become an anti-racist institution. Under the direction of President Raymond E. Crossman, Ph.D., the VPDEI serves as a key member of the senior management team and the President’s Cabinet. This is not a status quo diversity officer role. The new VPDEI will join a progressive University that has focused on social justice since its founding and is known for producing socially responsible practitioners. There is tremendous opportunity to build upon current initiatives and successes while also charting a path forward for the University.
More information about the University and the opportunities facing new leadership can be found in the AU leadership profile. All applications, nominations and inquiries are invited. For fullest consideration, candidate materials should be received by November 5, 2021.
