The Director will promote the design principles of the “New American University” fostering growth and innovation in the School’s research mission, working to attract, develop, and retain exceptional faculty members, promoting excellence in the undergraduate and graduate programs, developing interdisciplinary research and teaching initiatives, advancing entrepreneurial opportunities, and enhancing relations within and outside the university community.
