Nominations and applications are invited for the position of Associate Chancellor and Chief Diversity Officer at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The University seeks candidates with the education and experience to collaborate with all campus constituency groups on matters of diversity and inclusion, and to provide the leadership required to promote a vision that will encourage a culture of inclusion.

Founded in 1869 as the state's second teachers' college, SIU Carbondale is the flagship campus of the Southern Illinois University System. With almost 16,000 students and over 5,000 faculty/staff, the Carbondale campus offers 34 doctoral degrees, 80 master's degrees, and 95 academic majors for undergraduate students, as well as professional degrees in law and medicine. It is a diverse, student-centered research-intensive university that recently earned the prestigious 2015 community engagement classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, which reflects our longstanding commitment to service and outreach.

Diversity is an integral part of our legacy, with minority students making up 34 percent of our total enrollment. SIU Carbondale continues to rank among the nation's top colleges and universities in the number of degrees awarded to students in ethnic and racial minority groups.

The physical beauty of the region is a major attraction to students, faculty and visitors. Sixty miles to the south of Carbondale is the historic confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, the two forming the border of the southern tip of Illinois. Situated within 10 miles of the campus are two state parks, the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge and four large recreational lakes. Much of the area is a part of the 240,000-acre Shawnee National Forest.
