The University of the Pacific seeks an innovative, collaborative and inspiring leader to serve as Dean of the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy. This is an exciting opportunity to lead a highly successful, well-established, accredited pharmacy school through its next period of growth and innovation.

The University of the Pacific is a nationally ranked private university with three distinct campuses united under one common goal: to educate and prepare the leaders of tomorrow through intensive academic study, experiential learning and service to the community. For over 60 years, the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences has been training health care professionals to be problem-solvers, innovators and leaders. The School was shaped into what it is today by the hard work, dedication and support of its charismatic faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends.

The Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy adapts its programming alongside the ever-evolving health care industry. The School continues to advance its curriculum, programs, research and community outreach initiatives to stay ahead of the industry landscape. Dedicated, experienced faculty and staff support students and graduates through their entire careers at Pacific. The School empowers students to succeed by providing access to laboratories, classrooms and equipment for meaningful, hands-on learning, mentoring, leadership and patient care.

The Dean is a member of the Provost’s Leadership Council, President’s Advisory Council and the University’s Council of Deans, and is expected to be a university citizen helping to execute the strategic vision for the University. The Dean reports to the Provost and is responsible for all academic and operational functions across the School, including budget management, human resources (including recruiting, hiring and professional development), physical operations, development of academic curricula, clinical operations, student services, fundraising and other responsibilities. The Dean also provides for the selection and evaluation of qualified faculty and makes recommendations to the Provost and President concerning initial and continuing appointment as well as promotion and tenure of the faculty. The Dean has direct budget responsibility for operating funds in the school, shares in the responsibility for achieving enrollment goals and, in consultation with the Provost and the Vice President of Institutional Advancement, the Dean participates in external fundraising and alumni activities.

Candidates must have a strong understanding of pharmacy and health care systems. The Dean should be qualified to provide leadership in pharmacy professional education and practice, including research, scholarly activities and service. The Dean is the chief administrative and academic officer of the School and has direct access to the Provost and other university officials who are delegated with final responsibility for the University and School. The Dean should unite and inspire, faculty, staff, preceptors, students, and alumni toward achievement of the mission and goals.
