Associate Vice President for Development, Dell Medical School
The University of Texas at Austin
The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) is internationally recognized as a bold, ambitious leader in research and higher education. A member of the prestigious Association for American Universities (AAU), UT Austin is one of the nation’s premier centers for academic excellence and has more than 40 programs ranked among the top 10 in the country. The flagship campus of The University of Texas System (UT System), it is the fifth-largest university in the United States, with approximately 40,000 undergraduate students and over 11,000 graduate and professional students from across the nation and more than 118 countries.
The future of medical education, care and research is taking shape at the Dell Medical School, the newest of 18 colleges and schools on the UT Austin campus. It is also the first medical school in nearly 50 years to be built from the ground up at a top tier AAU research university. This creates powerful synergies between the School and ongoing innovation pouring in from other parts of campus. With the opportunity to start from scratch also comes the opportunity to create a new type of medical school and to really rethink the role of academic medicine in improving health.
Building upon a commitment to innovation and on the reputation of one of the country’s best public Research 1 universities, the AVP position at Dell Medical School represents a unique opportunity to build a best-in-class development program while also playing a role in healthcare transformation.
As the University heads into its next campaign, anticipated to be one of the largest, most ambitious campaigns in public higher education, Dell’s distinctive mission, renowned faculty and groundbreaking research represent several of the primary focus areas of the campaign. Fundraising priorities at Dell Medical School have the cache of the president, provost and regents and the potential to capture the attention of the University’s and community’s most generous philanthropists.
The ideal candidate is an entrepreneurial, visionary leader, who brings a spirit of collaboration having worked at a senior level across a complex research university or healthcare environment. The AVP’s key to success will be a proactive ability to identify interdisciplinary opportunities, and to create a strong case of support, at a medical school that doesn’t yet have a natural built-in base of support. Dell’s role as an economic driver for Austin, coupled with its innovative and global mission, will resonate with community leaders as well as UT Austin alumni, who bring unbridled pride and passion for their alma mater.
