Taubman College Dean Search

The University of Michigan seeks nominations and applications for the position of dean of the A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning (Taubman College).

Through the combination of academic research, creative work, design, and practical training, Taubman faculty, students, and staff seek to transform the quality of the built environment. The college’s two programs – Architecture and Urban and Regional Planning—prepare graduates for positions of responsibility within a wide spectrum of professions, organizations, government agencies, and institutions. Taubman faculty and students are engaged in innovative design study, policy research, professional training, and theoretical investigation in a variety of areas. They also serve the community through outreach and partnerships, locally to globally.

The college offers students a complement of degree programs: pre-professional (Bachelor of Science in Architecture); professional (Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Planning); post-professional (Master of Science in Architecture and Master of Urban Design); and Ph.D. (in Architecture or Urban and Regional Planning). The professional M.Arch. and M.U.P. programs are among the largest in the country. Committed and energetic faculty, staff, and students form a diverse, creative, and collaborative community within the University of Michigan, one of the world’s pre-eminent research universities.

The University of Michigan is searching for a dean who, working together with the Taubman community, will continue to enhance the national and international standing of the college and help set the strategic vision and priorities for its next phase. The dean is the chief academic and executive officer of the college and reports directly to the provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. The dean represents the college within the university and among a wide range of external constituencies.
