The College of Life Sciences and Agriculture at the University of New 
Hampshire is seeking a Dean to lead its missions of excellence in 
undergraduate and graduate education, in research, and in public 

The successful candidate for the Dean's position will have a 
demonstrated commitment to undergraduate and graduate education and 
research in biological sciences, natural resources, agriculture, and 
applied social sciences.  Prior administrative experience, including 
personnel and budget management and program development and 
evaluation are prerequisites. Fundraising experience and familiarity 
with land-grant universities are desirable.

The Dean is expected to be an effective advocate for the College's 
programs within and outside the University; facilitate improvements 
in undergraduate and graduate education; foster a climate to promote 
research, outreach and faculty development, and advance the 
University's affirmative action goals. The candidate's qualifications 
must include an earned doctorate, a record of teaching and 
scholarship appropriate to an appointment as a tenured professor in 
one of the College's departments.  Above all, the Dean must possess 
the leadership and communication skills to work effectively with 
faculty, students, and administrators within the University as well 
as with diverse constituencies outside the University. 

The University of New Hampshire is a top-tier land-, sea-, and 
space-grant public university, serving more than 11,300 
undergraduates and 2,400 graduate students. UNH is known for its 
beautiful campus of collegiate gothic, red brick buildings and 
ivy-covered walls.  Its proximity to Boston (60 miles), the Atlantic 
coast (8 miles) and the White Mountains and Lakes Region of New 
Hampshire add to the high quality of life enjoyed by members of the 
UNH community.
