President (Full Time)

Goldey-Beacom College seeks a new president to lead this small, yet highly successful, private, doctoral-granting college into the future. GBC is located in beautiful Pike Creek Valley, a suburb of Wilmington, Delaware.

The College traces its origins to 1886, when business educator H.S. Goldey opened the Wilmington Commercial College with only five students. In 1900, one of Goldey's best instructors, W.H. Beacom, parted ways, opening his own school only blocks away. For four decades the two engaged in fierce competition but merged in 1951 paving the way for the College that exists today. A consistent motivator for GBC has always been to provide robust, rigorous, and relevant education that meets the needs of rapid change. As a result, GBC has made growth, change, and renewal hallmarks of their institution. It has graduated four governors, corporate presidents across the nation, and professionals in every walk of life. The College is poised to move into the future, to innovate, and to continue to provide students with a transformational educational experience.

GBC offers an extensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs in all areas of business, psychology, criminal justice, English, and economics. Degrees are awarded at the associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and the doctoral levels. These academic programs are offered on its twenty-four acre campus, consisting of four apartment-style residence halls, two academic buildings, and athletics fields. GBC's current enrollment stands at approximately 2,000 students enrolled from 13 states and over 60 nations. The College is an NCAA Division II institution with 13 sports teams. GBC is accredited by both Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). More information can be found at www.gbc.edu. The College's new president will build upon a consistent record of success and innovation -- in collaboration with an outstanding faculty, a history of strong leadership, and a dedicated board -- to lead the College into the future of higher education. GBC’s next president will provide visionary leadership for the College as it faces a rapidly changing national and international landscape of higher education. This person must demonstrate a strong understanding of current trends and innovations in higher education as well as evidence of accomplishment and success in a significant leadership role.

Accomplishing this task will require the central assets of leadership: integrity, intelligence, authenticity, sound judgment, trustworthiness, considerable personal energy, confidence tempered by humility, courage of convictions, diplomacy, exceptional political instincts, and a sense of humor. Critical among these skills and attributes is a collaborative and transparent leadership approach that emphasizes teamwork and generates trusting relationships among the College’s various constituencies.

An earned terminal degree, ideally in one of the disciplines of the College, is required. A record of demonstrated and extensive leadership in higher education is required, although other significant leadership achievements would be considered. Additional information regarding qualifications and the position is available in the Leadership Profile

Inquiries, nominations and applications for the position of President of Goldey-Beacom College are invited. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by December 15, 2018. Candidates should provide, as three separate documents, a curriculum vitae, a letter of application, and the names and contact information of five references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and without the approval of candidates.
