The University of Nebraska invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean for Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture (NCTA). The university is seeking an innovative, dynamic, and entrepreneurial individual who will provide intellectual and strategic leadership for the college. We actively encourage applications from and nominations of qualified individuals from groups underrepresented in the agricultural professions.

The dean reports directly to the vice president of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska. Because of the need to collaborate closely with the dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) in fulfilling the NU mission related to teaching and learning in agriculture, the dean also serves as an associate dean in CASNR.

The dean regularly coordinates efforts with the senior leadership team of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR), which includes the vice president and Harlan Vice Chancellor of IANR, the associate and assistant vice chancellors of IANR, and the deans of CASNR, Agricultural Research Division (ARD), Nebraska Extension, and College of Education and Human Sciences (CEHS).

Provision of leadership and oversight of all academic programming at NCTA is expected in addition to facilitating the evolution of NCTA’s teaching and learning mission, while ensuring the relevance, quality, and impact of NCTA’s efforts to prepare students for a changing world.
