Rutgers University–New Brunswick invites applications and nominations for the position of dean of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy (EJBPPP). As the school’s chief academic and administrative officer, the dean provides leadership and vision for the school, implementing and advancing its mission, managing its resources, and furthering its external relations and fundraising.
EJBPPP is one of 18 schools and colleges at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. Founded in 1992, the school serves as a major center for the theory and practice of planning and public policy scholarship and analysis. Its 14 research centers, many of which are nationally known, bring in more than $14 million in external funding annually and provide opportunities for students to get hands-on experience in areas such as transportation, economic forecasting, workforce development, energy policy, urban planning, community development, public health, green building, and survey research. The Bloustein School grants B.A. and B.S. degrees in five majors, five master’s degrees, and, through the School of Graduate Studies, a Ph.D. in planning and public policy. The dean reports to the chancellor of Rutgers University–New Brunswick and is expected to be a key member of the university’s leadership team.
The search is expected to conclude in December 2017, with announcement of the appointment expected early in 2018.
