Dean of Social Work
RegionOut of Province
Description

The University of Regina seeks an accomplished and visionary individual – an experienced person of wisdom, integrity, courage, and energy – to lead the Faculty of Social Work. The Faculty of Social Work is committed to serving its communities in a context of social justice, and to preparing graduates to succeed in the complex, diverse, and rapidly changing environments of today and tomorrow. 

The successful candidate will have a solid record of success as one who has practiced social work, and is also a teacher, scholar, mentor, and an administrator with skills and accomplishments appropriate to a decanal appointment that carries with it an academic appointment with tenure at the rank of full or associate professor.  

She or he will be an innovator and problem solver committed to excellent student experiences at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate will also have demonstrated the ability to create and foster a collaborative climate and to inspire faculty members to excel. Given that the Faculty of Social Work has campuses in Regina, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert, the new Dean is expected to travel regularly and maintain a presence with faculty, staff, and students in all locations, and should have experience with a multiple-campus setting. 

The successful candidate will possess excellent communication skills, as well as the ability to work collaboratively with professional associations, government agencies including the Ministries of Social Services, Health, Education, and Justice, and with diverse communities in Saskatchewan and abroad. A key attribute is the ability to build links with potential sources of support, including the Faculty’s more than 8,000 alumni. 

Review of applications will commence in April 2019, with campus visits and interviews tentatively scheduled for mid to late May. The target date for appointment is 1 January 2020. Decanal appointments are generally five years in length, and are renewable after review for a further five years. 

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.  The University of Regina is committed to achieving a representative workforce. Qualified diversity group members are encouraged to self-identify on their applications.
