Baylor University seeks an ambitious leader to serve as Dean of the School of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS). This is an opportunity to build a growing school that will contribute to the University’s goal of becoming a preeminent Christian research university. Chartered in 1845, Baylor fulfills its mission “to educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community.”
Baylor’s research expenditures have been growing at an average rate of 28% over the last three years, and annual research dollars awarded to the university have been growing at an even faster rate over this time period. The intermediate goal of Baylor being classified among the nation’s elite research institutions is within reach, and under the leadership of the new Dean, ECS will play a critical role in Baylor’s success in reaching and maintaining Research 1 (or R1) status.
Baylor seeks a Dean who combines respected scholarship and academic achievements with strategic leadership ability, outstanding interpersonal and communication skills, collaborative and creative energy, entrepreneurial ambition, passion for the fields of engineering and computer science, and vision for the role of ECS within a 21st century Christian research university.
