With ambition and innovative thinking, the new Dean will move the Library toward the level of service, impact, and relevance that the College expects in terms of its collection, space, and role in teaching, learning, research, and community. Informed by a 2016 ACRL review, other priorities that have been identified for the new Dean include developing a strategy for the library’s digital collection; developing a plan for the evolution of the library’s space and physical environment; and contributing to the design, launch, and success of the new Center for Teaching and Learning, which will report alongside the Library to the Provost and will likely be housed in the library.

Wheaton is seeking a Dean who is open, collaborative, trusted, and committed to the Wheaton College community and who will engage all members of the community in an ambitious and innovative vision. Specific requirements for the position include a Master’s degree from an ALA-accredited Library/Information Science program. Candidates should have at least 10 years of progressively responsible experience in library administration, preferably in an academic institution; experience as a direct report to a library director/dean, or as a director/dean is expected. Significant experience with library budgets, library operations, and the recruiting, hiring, management, and leadership of professional and paraprofessional staff is expected; experience developing a long-range plan for financial sustainability, including with fundraising via grant-writing or philanthropy, is a plus. The Dean will share and will advance the College’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
