As we look toward the future and UB’s top 25 ambitions, the College is reorganizing the Dean’s Office structure in an effort to better support departments, programs, centers and institutes and to improve and streamline processes and procedures.
Goals of the reorganization:
We need the College’s most talented faculty to consider serving as sector-based associate deans. Preference will be given to faculty at the rank of full/distinguished professor and those who have significant administrative experience.
Representing the range of disciplines from across the College, a committee of full professors will meet with candidates for the five associate dean positions and will serve as advisors to the dean.
The Sector Administrative Directors, a position developed as part of the College’s reorganization, are vital administrative support roles for each sector. The administrative directors will work closely with the Associate Deans in their respective sector as a strategic partner and advisor. The Sector Administrative Director will assume responsibility for key administration functions and management of processes for the sector.
The application period for the sector administrative directors has closed.
