UW Oshkosh is the largest of 11 comprehensive universities in a public higher education system that also includes two doctoral institutions and a statewide Extension. The University was founded in 1871 and provides educational programs and services to the scenic Fox River Valley region of central northeast Wisconsin. In 2018, UW Oshkosh joined with the two-year campuses of UWO-Fond du Lac and UWO-Fox Cities because of a UW System-wide merger and is now a thriving, three-campus university. The 163-acres of the three campuses is strategically located in a thriving economic and cultural basin with a combined population in excess of 750,000. This urban corridor consists of a cluster of dynamic, growing, mid-sized communities that stretch from Milwaukee to Green Bay. The Division of Student Affairs at UW Oshkosh provides an integrated experience through student-centered programs, facilities and services that promote educational, professional and personal development. The division promotes an inclusive community, which creates lifelong learners who contribute to a global society.

In concert with the vice chancellor for student affairs, academic leadership and a talented and dedicated faculty and staff, the next UW Oshkosh associate vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students (AVC/DOS) will be an innovative and collaborative leader who serves as a visible presence for students and colleagues alike. UW Oshkosh seeks an individual who values the educational experience offered by a public comprehensive regional university. In a time of renewed energy and optimism as the university prepares to release its new strategic plan, this is an opportunity to become a critical part of a shared governance community.

The next AVC/DOS, in close partnership with the vice chancellor and the divisional leadership team, will support the division's collective efforts to provide a holistic and inclusive student experience from pre-enrollment through graduation. The AVC/DOS will lead a talented team of student affairs staff through a period of change as the division restructures and the cultural and engagement centers and Academic Support of Inclusive Excellence (ASIE) teams move into this leader's portfolio. The AVC/DOS will work with divisional and academic partners from across campus to advance an integrated student experience rooted in health, safety and wellness.

The successful candidate will be a communicative and engaging leader known for their fairmindedness, consistency, resourcefulness and creativity in developing and presenting sound and well thought out ideas. They will have a personal and professional commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion; be deeply committed to collaboration, relational leadership and creative problem-solving and thinking; demonstrate exceptional administrative, financial and managerial acumen; and possess a broad knowledge of current student affairs issues and trends. A master's degree is required.
