Rhodes College seeks a creative, collaborative, and strategic information technology leader for the position of Chief Information Officer. Working closely with President Marjorie Hass and reporting to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Chief Information Officer (CIO) will partner with faculty, staff, students, and administrators to design and implement a comprehensive and forward-looking vision for leveraging information, data, space, and technology in support of the College’s mission. With a broad portfolio that includes information technology, the Barret Library, and institutional research, the CIO plays a critical and highly visible role in advancing the academic and administrative work of the College.
Rhodes has built a unique place for itself among the nation’s top liberal arts colleges by combining a powerful commitment to the liberal arts with unusually rich connections to the surrounding City of Memphis, Tennessee. Rhodes has twice been named “The #1 Most Service-Oriented College in the United States” by Newsweek, and civic engagement is integrated into the curriculum for all students. Recently, Rhodes was included in the new Princeton Review college guide, Colleges that Create Futures: 50 Colleges that Launch Careers by Going Beyond the Classroom. Rhodes enrolls 2,055 students and has an endowment of $340 million. The Rhodes student experience is driven by intellectual engagement, service to others, and honor.
The new CIO will be pleased to discover that the library, institutional research, and information technology staff at Rhodes are deeply interconnected and work together seamlessly to maximize the quality and efficiency of their services to the campus community. As an expert in both organizational and technical best practices, the CIO will lead talented, dedicated, and highly motivated staff members within the Information Services (IS) division.
As an executive leader for the College, the Chief Information Officer will be a highly-knowledgeable and collaborative professional with a track record of successful organizational and technical leadership within information technology. The CIO will be an excellent listener and an effective communicator with a commitment to supporting the mission, values, and strategic goals of Rhodes College.
