Rutgers-Camden, one of three campuses of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, announces a nationwide search to recruit a new Chancellor.

Reporting to the President of Rutgers University, Robert Barchi, the Chancellor of Rutgers-Camden is the chief executive officer of the campus and is responsible for its successful and effective operation. The next Chancellor will be a visionary leader with the capacity to build on the strengths of a nationally recognized urban public research campus.

Founded in 1926, Rutgers-Camden began as the South Jersey Law School and the College of South Jersey. In 1950, the two schools became the Camden campus and merged with Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Today, Rutgers-Camden is a growing public research campus serving South Jersey and the greater Philadelphia region, with more than 6,500 students and approximately 310 FTE faculty. The campus is comprised of the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business, the School of Law, and the School of Nursing, along with a component of the Rutgers School of Social Work. Together, these schools offer 34 undergraduate and 27 graduate majors and joint degree programs.

The best candidate for this post will have exemplary interpersonal and communications skills and will be a consummate fund-raiser and friend-raiser for the University. Desired characteristics include an appreciation for an excellent research faculty; a team-oriented, consensus-building style of decision-making; a passion for preparing students for productive and successful lives; enthusiasm for a diverse academic community; and an understanding of the role of an anchor institution.

While applications and nominations will be accepted until a new Chancellor is selected, interested parties are encouraged to submit their materials to our consultant at the address below by January 30 to assure optimal consideration. Candidate materials should include an updated resume and a letter of interest.
