The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) at Lipscomb University is at a significant moment as it plans for and develops a School of Communication. The new school is envisioned as bringing together scholars, practitioners and teachers all committed to the transformational work of applying scholarship and teaching communication knowledge and practices to students in curricular and co-curricular undergraduate, graduate and professional programs.
The CLAS seeks an innovative, visionary leader to serve as its founding Executive Director for the School of Communication. Reporting to the Dean of the CLAS, the Executive Director of the School of Communication will provide bold leadership, creative strategy, and inspiring energy to move the existing Department of Communication and Journalism to new levels of excellence and success in a changing higher education landscape. Candidates should have a doctorate in communication or a closely affiliated academic area. Most importantly, the Executive Director must have an unwavering commitment to student learning and success, and to the Christian mission of Lipscomb University.
