The successful candidate would have earned an advanced degree from a regionally-accredited institution, and demonstrated senior leadership experience in a college/university setting or in a comparably complex not-for-profit environment. The candidate should appreciate and embrace the academic portfolio at Molloy, where complex professional programs continue to have strong presence and significant growth opportunities. The candidate must be dedicated to academic excellence in both teaching and research and appreciate the value of an interdisciplinary education.
