The Executive Director of the Center for Health and Wellbeing and Senior Public Health Officer reports to the Vice Provost for Student Affairs and serves as a member of the Student Affairs senior leadership team.  The Executive Director is responsible for the strategic leadership and visionary direction of a multidisciplinary team and will champion the areas of Counseling and Psychiatric Services, Student Health Services, Living Well (Education and Outreach), and Division 1 Athletic Training in their successful management of operations and advancement of integrated programs and services.  


It is essential that the next Executive Director of the Center have a deep understanding and commitment to diversity and inclusion.  Countless factors contribute to the health of UVM students including family, ethnicity, income, race, gender, social status, education, nationality, sexual orientation, the environment and more.  The next Executive Director will need to be alert to the various ways in which the actions of individuals, groups, and systems create barriers to student, staff, and faculty health and wellbeing.  It is expected that the next Executive Director exercise determined and diligent leadership by virtue of their own experience, vision, and voice to see the many ways which true and intentional inclusivity effects the delivery of exceptional health services to students, the hiring and development of excellent culturally attuned staff, and addressing public health issues of the campus.  This is a priority of the institution, the division, and the department. 


Working directly with the President and Vice Provost, the Executive Director will serve as both an institutional and national thought leader on college health with a clear understanding of how specific social inequities are a public health issue.  The Executive Director will leverage UVM’s already strong reputation for improving student health and wellness and will have responsibilities for overseeing public health initiatives for the campus and creating meaningful opportunities to engage directly with others who are working to positively influence student health and campus culture.  The Executive Director will also have responsibilities and skills to acknowledge forms of bias that may negatively impact the health and wellbeing of students, staff and faculty.


The Executive Director will provide strong leadership for an organization of approximately 65 full-time and part-time staff and oversee an $8.7M annual budget.  The Executive Director will lead short-term and long-range planning through assessment strategies and evidence-based programs serving 10,000 undergraduates and 3,000 graduate and medical students.  As a member of the Student Affairs leadership team and University’s Emergency Operations Group, the Executive Director will contribute to division-wide strategic planning and key university initiatives/events, in addition to supporting campus-wide response during campus emergencies.
