Deans—Open Positions

Michigan Technological University is a public research university, home to more than 7,000 students from 60 countries around the world. Founded in 1885, the University offers more than 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in science, technology, engineering, and math; forestry; business and economics; health professions; humanities; and social sciences. Our beautiful campus in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula overlooks the Keweenaw Waterway and is just a few miles from Lake Superior.

Michigan Tech is entering an exciting period of transition. A number of our currently serving deans have announced plans to retire over the next two academic years, signaling the start of an anticipated leadership succession. While such transitions undoubtedly bring change, they also offer a remarkable opportunity for new leadership to build upon the achievements of our outgoing leaders. We invite you to review our available positions and submit inquiries, applications, and nominations.
