					                        Vice President for International Affairs
                                   Brown University

Brown University invites nominations and applications for the new position of Vice
President for International Affairs. The Vice President for International Affairs will
provide leadership in shaping and carrying out the University’s ambitious international
agenda. Brown is launching a significant effort to broaden its international profile and
expand its commitment to international activities both on and off campus. The goals of
this effort include: preparing Brown students for lives and careers that will increasingly
require knowledge of the world’s cultures and of processes of globalization; ensuring that
the University is effectively competing on an international stage for the best students and
faculty and for resources in support of research and teaching; and equipping the
institution to contribute in major ways to the solution of significant global problems.

The Vice President for International Affairs, reporting to the Provost, will help guide the
University in meeting these goals. The Vice President for International Affairs will
provide leadership for the University in two primary spheres. On campus, s/he will help
ensure greater institutional coherence for the University’s programs of research and
instruction in international subject areas, and will work with the President, Provost, other
senior administrators, and faculty to develop new initiatives and strengthen existing ones.
Externally, s/he will represent Brown to international constituencies (governments,
academic and research institutions, NGOs, corporations, and key private individuals) in
order to explore and negotiate partnerships and collaborations and identify new sources
of funding, thus enhancing and broadening the undergraduate and graduate experience
and raising the University’s profile.
