Job Description
Vice Provost
The University of Kentucky (UK) seeks a strategic and collaborative leader with a distinguished scholarly profile to serve as the next Vice Provost.

UK is a leading land-grant and public Research 1 university located in the beautiful Bluegrass region of central Kentucky. Counted among the highest level of Carnegie research institutions, UK continues to rise as one of the nation’s premier public research universities with expectations of growing significantly in stature across all dimensions of the institution’s mission — teaching, research, service and care.

The vice provost will partner with colleges, their leadership and other senior leadership on campus for decision-making and special initiatives. The leadership of the Office of Internationalization and the Provost Budget Office will report to the vice provost. The vice provost will provide strategic leadership over resources, compliance and service excellence. The successful candidate must possess a recognized tertiary degree and be nationally recognized in academic pursuits that would warrant appointment as a tenured, full professor. The candidate must have progressive and broad experience in academic administrative leadership for at least 10 years, arising from a senior-level administrative role such as department chair, center director, associate dean or dean. They must also demonstrate a commitment and ability to advance the university’s philosophy and practice in creating an inclusive environment.

The vice provost reports to the provost and is expected to serve as an institutional leader aligned with the university’s mission and strategic plan. This role supports the provost in partnering with deans and overseeing colleges and other units on campus to help advance educational, research and service activities. As a chief administrative officer, the vice provost meets with the provost individually and collectively with other deans. The vice provost is responsible for managing and coordinating the implementation of plans, programs, services and scholarly and research endeavors.

Required Professional Qualifications and Personal Qualities
● Recognized tertiary degree.
● Nationally recognized achievement in academic pursuits that would warrant appointment as a tenured, full professor.
● Progressive and broad academic administrative leadership experience arising from a senior-level administrative role such as department chair, center director, associate dean or dean.
● At least 10 years of experience.

The vice provost must be an effective administrator, with analytical skills, the capacity to foster a rich entrepreneurial campus environment and the ability to effectively communicate the institution’s vision, mission, values and priorities.
