Located in California's Silicon Valley, Santa Clara University is pursuing an ambitious period of growth across multiple fronts and has developed an integrated strategic plan, Santa Clara 2020. As noted in Goal Three of the Plan, Santa Clara “will build on its academic programs and linkages within Silicon Valley to become one of the top educational institutions advancing an entrepreneurial mindset, scientific discovery, and technological innovation in greater service of humanity."

Santa Clara seeks as their next Dean of the School of Engineering a recognized leader with a distinguished record of academic or professional accomplishment; experience leading and managing faculty and staff in a university or equivalent setting; demonstrated acumen in budgetary and financial affairs; a record of leading strategic planning and successful innovation; enthusiasm for external engagement and fundraising; an ability to engage industry leaders and build meaningful partnerships; a track record of making and implementing decisions in a collaborative and coordinated manner; an appreciation of and a commitment to shared governance with the faculty; support for the recruitment, retention, and success of a diverse community of faculty, staff and students; and recognition of and commitment to excellence in teaching and scholarship as integral to Santa Clara’s Jesuit educational mission.

The School of Engineering has been dedicated to preparing students for professional excellence, responsible citizenship, and service to society for more than a hundred years. Santa Clara’s dynamic programs in bioengineering; civil, environmental, and sustainable engineering; computer engineering; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering; power systems and sustainable energy; applied mathematics, and engineering management provide the theoretical and practical instruction necessary for professional excellence. The School believes that combining expert instruction, a commitment to personalized mentoring, and the promotion of an ethical and entrepreneurial mindset in the curriculum produces a class of engineers who are not only technically outstanding but excellent citizens as well.

Inspired by Jesuit ideals and Silicon Valley’s culture of collaboration and innovation, the School, in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences, will shape leaders in science, engineering, and mathematics to forge breakthroughs, solve society’s most complex problems, and build a more humane, just, and sustainable world. As part of this effort to bring together faculty and students in STEM-related fields, the University, the School, and the Dean will foster transformative pedagogy and innovative curricula, disciplinary depth and convergence, engaging research, integration with the University community, engagement with Silicon Valley, and engineering with a mission, consistent with Jesuit values.

To support these efforts, the University will locate a variety of spaces that support STEM teaching and research in a new 270,000 square foot facility– the Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation. It blends classrooms, laboratories, project spaces, and informal gathering spaces to create an inviting and highly flexible learning and research environment.

The Dean will have an outstanding opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from across campus to promote the convergence of science and engineering disciplines, foster innovative teaching and research, and build industry collaborations, internship opportunities, educational outreach, and initiatives that address the needs of our students and faculty, the local community, the underserved, and the global poor.
