The University of Virginia (UVA) School of Nursing (SON) seeks an Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ADDEI) to lead in the development and implementation of strategies to build and sustain a culture of respect and inclusion. This is a tenure track position and may be filled at the Associate or Full Professor level.

We seek applicants whose experience, teaching, research, and/or community service has prepared them to substantially contribute to this mission.
