Columbus, Indiana—46,000 people, south of Indianapolis—is one of America’s special small cities, with world-class architecture, extensive public art, a symphony orchestra, and a culture of progressive civic engagement. In 1970 the City’s can-do spirit induced Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to open a campus in Columbus. Today that unit (IUPUC) enrolls 1,700 students in a variety of employment-related fields, served by a full-time faculty of 66. IUPUC shares facilities with Ivy Tech, Purdue’s College of Technology, a shared-use library and teaching and learning center, a Center for Advanced Manufacturing (designed by Cesar Pelli), and various public agencies and regional alliances.
The IUPUC Vice Chancellor is the campus CEO and reports to the IUPUI Chancellor. Externally, the Vice Chancellor is responsible for relationships with the supporting universities and with community partners; internally, he or she is the chief operating officer and, as Dean, provides leadership for curricular, faculty, and student affairs.
IUPUI, IUPUC, and the Columbus community seek a person with a passion for student learning, attainment, and diversity, a leader with the vision to drive IUPUC to new capabilities to serve student and regional futures. Abilities to plan and execute in partnership with others are crucial to success. Academic credentials appropriate to the CAO role are required. Applicants should review this Prospectus and follow its instructions on the final page.
