The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) seeks nominations and applications for a visionary, energetic, and innovative leader to serve as Dean of the College of Engineering and Information Technology.
Reporting to Provost Philip Rous, and mentored directly by President Freeman Hrabowski, the new Dean of the College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT) will oversee a rapidly growing and highly innovative organization. The Dean of COEIT occupies an unusually high profile position given UMBC's strength in STEM education and President Hrabowski's national stature. The Dean serves as a role model not only for COEIT's students and faculty, but for the future of engineering and computing as a whole.
UMBC, which is classified as a Doctoral University: Higher Research Activity by the Carnegie Foundation, enrolls nearly 14,000 students, including approximately 2,500 graduate students. UMBC is one of the 12 campuses of the University System of Maryland and is located on 500 wooded, rolling acres just outside of Baltimore and about 45 minutes from Washington, DC.
The University's College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT), established in 1985, is a relatively young entity that enjoys an unusually high level of national visibility because of its rapid growth and its place at the heart of UMBC's mission. The College is deeply committed to integrating undergraduate and graduate education, research and innovation, and service to address evolving global needs. COEIT is proud of its diverse student body and its inclusive culture, which mirrors UMBC's overall commitment to inclusive excellence. The College also distinguishes itself with a strong commitment to cross-disciplinary research and education.
In keeping with the spirit and values of UMBC, the next Dean of the College of Engineering and Information Technology will be a collaborative and entrepreneurial leader. They will have an outstanding record of accomplishments including a record of scholarship, research funding, and credentials commensurate with an appointment as a tenured full professor in an engineering/computing discipline at UMBC.
Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. For best consideration, please send nominations, applications, and queries in confidence and electronically by April 24th to:
