Job Description

University of Maine System

The Board of Trustees of the University of Maine System (UMS) welcomes nominations and applications for its next Chancellor. UMS seeks a dynamic, engaged, focused and inspirational leader to advance the Maine statewide system of higher education to produce meaningful, relevant, and sustainable approaches to higher education to enhance the world-class strengths of Maine's public universities. UMS currently operates in a financially stable manner, through a "One University" framework that guides Maine's public higher education reform and has become a national model of engagement and strategic change. UMS has achieved a nation-leading commitment to affordability for students and their families. The Chancellor will be the leading spokesperson for public higher education within the State of Maine.

The Chancellor serves as the overall executive and strategic leader for the presidents, system officials and campus faculty and staff throughout all units of the system. UMS consists of six universities: University of Maine (UM), including its regional campus, the University of Maine at Machias (UMM); University of Maine at Augusta (UMA); University of Maine at Presque Isle (UMPI); University of Maine at Farmington (UMF); University of Southern Maine (USM); and University of Maine at Fort Kent (UMFK), and many other centers, institutes and units, as well as system-wide service offices.

The UMS Board of Trustees has been strategically focused on key priorities for the System for many years. The Board adopted a Strategic Outcomes document in 2014, refined those strategic objectives in 2016, and in December of 2018, further refined and supplemented those strategic goals and desired outcomes in a document titled "Declaration of Strategic Priorities to Address Critical State Needs."

The next Chancellor for the University of Maine System should bring a high degree of energy, talents, passion and leadership skills to the opportunity. UMS expects that the Chancellor will have the academic and intellectual credibility appropriate to a higher education leader, which may include an advanced degree but could also arise from other skills and experiences. UMS desires someone who is committed to public higher education, a strong communicator and advocate, a strategic and collaborative leader, and a successful executive leader. Interested candidates should review full information about this opportunity in the leadership prospectus, which is available on the website of the System, at: http://www.chancellorsearch.maine.edu and on the website of Academic Search, www.academic-search.com, by clicking on the "Current Searches" tab at the top.
