Dean of the Sol Price School of Public Policy

Application Deadline: N/A

The https://usc.edu invites nominations, expressions of interest, and applications for a remarkable scholar and leader to serve as the next dean of the https://priceschool.usc.edu, one of the country’s premier schools improving the quality of life for people and communities, worldwide.

 

A global powerhouse that is ranked fourth nationally for schools of its kind, USC Price annually trains roughly 2,000 top graduate, doctoral, and undergraduate students from across the country and around the globe. Students choose Price because they want to use their degree to change the world, selecting from six areas of study: health policy and management; non-profits and philanthropy; public administration; public policy; real estate development; and urban planning. Price offers three bachelor's degrees, 17 master's degrees, and three doctoral degree programs. The school’s location, in the heart of Los Angeles, provides endless opportunities to learn from distinguished faculty, access one of the most extensive and influential professional networks in the world, and learn in the living classroom that is Los Angeles. The Sacramento and Washington, D.C. Centers expand the living classroom, providing additional opportunities to those associated with the Price School.

 

USC Price is home to internationally recognized scholars with deep research strength. Investments from the National Institutes of Health, among other prestigious organizations, support this work, which is central to the school's policy impact, prestige, and classroom excellence.

 

The present and future leaders who attend USC Price leave the school with a profound understanding of ethics and public service; detailed awareness of how the public, nonprofit, and private sectors can intersect to achieve positive change; and the solid analytic, creative, and consensus-building skills necessary to solve pressing problems.

 

USC Price seeks in its next dean a leader with the highest aspirations and ambitions for the quality and reputation of the school and a deep commitment to its mission. The new dean will expand the school's impact; innovate for 21st century needs and challenges; develop faculty and staff and support student achievement; and build upon a foundation of fundraising success. The ideal candidate will bring academic leadership experience of progressively greater responsibility and a nationally, if not internationally, recognized research portfolio. Applied connection to policy or service is a plus. An earned doctorate or terminal degree along with demonstrated excellence as a teacher and a strong reputation in the academic community, sufficient to merit appointment as a tenured professor, is expected.

 

All applications, nominations, and inquiries are invited. Applications should include, as separate documents, a CV or resume and a letter of interest addressing the themes in the profile available at https://apptrkr.com/5277638.

 

The budgeted annual salary range that the University of Southern California reasonably expects to pay for the dean of the USC Price School is $475,000 to $575,000. This range takes into account a wide range of factors that are considered in making compensation decisions, including but not limited to experience, skills, knowledge, abilities, education, licensure and certifications, and other business and organizational needs. Salary offers are determined based on final candidate qualifications and experience.
