Senior Director, Fordham University in London at Fordham University
Fordham University is seeking an outstanding leader for the post of Senior Director of Fordham London.
After offering programmes in London for over 15 years, Fordham London’s new global campus in the city’s Clerkenwell neighbourhood is a symbol of the University’s commitment to education abroad and a furtherance of its mission beyond New York. At the heart of Fordham London is an inclusive learning environment which fosters intercultural competence and prepares undergraduate and graduate students to thrive in an increasingly multicultural, global society.
London is the classroom in which undergraduate study abroad students from Fordham and other colleges and universities explore subjects from new perspectives and in a unique setting. In the 2019-2020 academic year, Fordham London hosted over 500 undergraduate students, a 53% increase in enrolment from academic year 2015-2016 across programmes in Business and Liberal Arts.
Beyond its premier undergraduate study abroad programmes, Fordham London is host to short-term graduate programmes, a community of international research scholars, and is actively planning to increase and enhance its undergraduate and graduate presence in London.
As Senior Director, you will serve as the Chief Administrative Officer of Fordham London and hold primary responsibility for identifying, implementing, and articulating a future vision for the institution. You will be a leader in international higher education and provide visible advocacy on behalf of Fordham London to both internal and external constituencies and audiences.
With significant administrative experience at the university level, and proven leadership, you will advance the nature and reputation of Fordham London and provide academic programming reflecting Fordham’s mission of educating students to lead and serve in an increasingly multicultural and multinational society. You will also advocate in the areas of governance, academic standards, curricular development, research and pedagogy, academic facilities and operations, and mission integration in collaboration with Fordham’s global community.
The successful candidate will have the ability work effectively and collaboratively with individuals from all backgrounds to promote diversity, equity and inclusion, and effect positive change within Fordham University and society.
