POSITION INFORMATION

The University of Missouri-St. Louis is searching for an engaged and dynamic Dean of the Pierre Laclede Honors College (PLHC). We seek a leader who believes passionately in the value of honors education and the unique curricular and extra-curricular experiences it provides students. Additionally, we seek a leader who understands the challenges and importance of the role that honors plays in recruiting and retaining high-achieving students to the university.

The PLHC is a small college with a liberal arts mission inside this larger, research-engaged, public university. The College provides interesting and innovative seminar courses, full service academic advising, a First Year Experience program, a writing program and an internship/independent study program to approximately 600 students who earn an Honors Certificate upon completing the curriculum. The PLHC offers approximately 50 classes per semester, most with enrollment limited entirely or predominantly to Honors students. These students come from all majors, with our largest populations pursuing degrees in business, biology, nursing, psychology, engineering, and English. Incoming students have an average 3.6 GPA, 85% class rank, and 27 ACT composite. The PLHC is located near the Oak Hall residence which is home to the honors living learning community. Our dedicated PLHC staff includes an associate dean, five non-tenure track faculty members, an academic advisor, a student recruitment specialist, an office support staff member, and a business support staff member.
