  • Vice President for Finance and Business

    (Posted May 30, 2019)

    Monmouth College

    Monmouth Illinois

    May 29, 2019

    Monmouth College is a private, selective, residential undergraduate liberal arts college located in Monmouth, Illinois. The Vice President for Finance and Business (VPFB) will be retiring, and the College is seeking nominations and applications to fill this position by November 1, 2019. 

    Established in 1853, Monmouth is home to more than 900 students, drawn from 31 states and 22 countries. Some 31 percent are domestic students of color and over 40 percent are first generation college students. One of the most distinctive characteristics of Monmouth College is its commitment to being a place of high opportunity and high achievement. Through a very generous program of student financial aid and scholarships, Monmouth seeks to ensure that any bright and motivated student may participate in this experience regardless of family financial circumstances. At the same time, Monmouth seeks to maintain and enhance a rigorous and innovative experience in what it calls the liberating arts and sciences. 

    Monmouth College is located less than four hours from Chicago and St. Louis, in West Central Illinois. The communities of Galesburg, Peoria, Macomb, Burlington, and the Quad Cities, which all offer a variety of historical sites, shopping, restaurants, and arts and festivals, are all within an hour’s drive. Alternatively, Chicago is easily accessible by local Amtrak service. The majority of College faculty and staff choose to reside in Monmouth, which has approximately 9,500 residents, many living just blocks from campus. 

    The VPFB serves as a part of President Clarence Wyatt’s senior leadership team and will work with the Board of Trustees, president, fellow administrators, faculty, and staff to help shepherd the College into a new era. This is an exciting time to join the Monmouth College community—the College is well under way in implementing a new strategic plan and is experiencing early success in an intensive fundraising campaign aimed primarily at significantly increasing the College’s endowment. The VPFB will oversee budget and planning, accounting services, the endowment, human resources, dining services, campus facilities, the bookstore, auxiliary services, internal controls, risk management, and energy conservation. The successful candidate will be a highly qualified financial leader prepared to address the challenges many small private liberal arts colleges are facing in enrollment, tuition discounting, fundraising and cost containment. For additional information about the College, community, and the qualifications sought in the next VPFB, please review the position profile, which is located at www.academic-search.com under the “Current Searches” tab. 

    The College is being assisted in this search by Academic Search, Inc. Confidential discussions about this opportunity may be arranged by contacting Jay Lemons at jay@academic-search.com or Jairy Hunter at jch@academic-search.com

    Applications should consist of a substantive letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, and a list of five professional references with full contact information and a note indicating the nature of your working relationship with each. References will not be contacted without the explicit permission of the candidate. The position is open until filled but only applications received by July 10, 2019 can be assured full consideration.
