Reporting to the Provost, the Executive Director leads a talented professional staff and administrative faculty of 19 across teaching, research, alumnae relations, development, events, communications, archives, and operational responsibilities. The work of the Institute is also supported by the over 90 affiliated faculty across Tulane as well as its dedicated alumnae base. The Newcomb Institute Director’s Advisory Council (DAC) serves as an advisory group to the Executive Director, bringing the perspectives of a variety of constituencies to bear on matters of Newcomb Institute policy, activities, programs, and goals, and to help the Executive Director advance the interests of the Newcomb Institute and its mission. The Institute's annual operating budget is approximately $2 million, funded by a robust endowment valued at $42 million. The Executive Director will lead through influence and bring a natural proclivity for collaboration, fostering and developing more extensive relationships across campus and in the community. Effectively partnering with deans and department and program leaders to jointly hire faculty and enhance teaching and scholarship on gender will enhance Newcomb Institute’s impact and reach and position the Institute and Tulane as thought leaders and exemplars of advancing women’s leadership and gender equity in all fields and disciplines. The Executive Director will leverage the Institute’s resources, rich history, stellar facilities, and passionate community of scholars, students, staff, and alumnae to chart a vision for the next chapter of Newcomb Institute’s evolution.
