The University of New Mexico (UNM), New Mexico’s flagship R1 university, seeks an inspirational, creative, and strategic leader to serve as the next Dean of the Robert O. Anderson School of Management (Anderson). It is an exciting time to join the UNM community as it embarks on UNM 2040, an ambitious and aspirational vision that defines the long- and short-term objectives for the university and Anderson is a critical part of this vision. The Dean will ensure Anderson continues to be at the forefront of business education through demonstrated and growing excellence in teaching, research, and business and civic engagement locally, nationally, and globally.
Anderson is a world-class business school with award winning faculty and programs, offering a wide array of degree programs for a diverse student population. The recent Dean of Anderson has put the school in a direction of transformation focused on careful development of degree programs based on market need, increasing its research profile, and embracing its role in the economic development for the state. Anderson is ready to welcome a new Dean who will continue to build on its many strengths, including its outstanding intellectual environment, highly diverse and talented student population, deep connections to New Mexico communities, and exceptional faculty and staff. The Dean will be expected to continue to enhance academic excellence and student success, foster inclusion across UNM students, staff, faculty, and alumni, grow and sustain new and innovative community partnerships, and continue to develop philanthropic giving. This is an opportunity to be entrepreneurial with programming, revenue generation, community engagement, and economic development, and to lead this highly diverse community in addressing the pressing management needs of New Mexico.
Leading a school of four departments, with over 100 faculty and staff and over 2,700 undergraduate and graduate students, the incoming Dean will partner with and benefit from supportive university leadership, campus stakeholders, and an engaged community of student scholars. The following opportunities and challenges are especially critical for this role:
• Rally the School around a strategic vision based on the UNM 2040 framework while fostering inclusion, a sense of community, and excitement for the future
• Increase the visibility of Anderson and better position the School to partner with and support New Mexico’s businesses, government, and nonprofits
• Lead an ambitious fundraising effort
• Ensure students have the tools and experiences needed to graduate and obtain jobs
• Enhance programs and ensure existing programs support strategic goals in alignment with UNM 2040
• Continue to develop the new business model and support infrastructure
