To continue our success and trajectory, we seek a dynamic Associate Dean for Tax Programs with deep tax knowledge, an entrepreneurial spirit, and prior experience at an ABA-accredited law school as an associate or assistant dean or as the director of a tax program.  The Associate Dean will be a faculty member appointed at a rank commensurate with experience and an administrator who will play a vital role on the Levin College’s leadership team.  The ideal candidate will be a problem-solver and strategic thinker who embraces an environment of innovation and continuous improvement and is committed to growing our tax programs, working with alumni, and raising our national and international profile.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of an exciting chapter at the Levin College of Law as it rises to the next level.  Professor Charlene Luke has provided amazing leadership and service in this administrative role for the past five years; she will take a much-deserved sabbatical after she steps down as the Associate Dean for Tax Programs this summer.
