Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College [SWC] seeks a full-time Vice-President Academic and Dean. Ph.D. and administrative experience are required. It is preferable that the candidate be capable of assuming some teaching responsibilities in one of the disciplines of the liberal arts. Current rank of Associate Professor or Professor is preferred.
Start date July 1, 2024 (negotiable). The position will remain open until filled, and is subject to budgetary approval. Potential candidates are encouraged to apply immediately.
Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College offers higher education in the Catholic tradition of the liberal arts.

The College is also in the final stages of applying for a four–year Bachelor of Arts degree, with majors in history, literature, and classical and early-Christian studies. The VP Academic and Dean will play a crucial role in the implementation of these programs, if granted. SWC is fully faithful to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church and expects successful candidates to serve this mission; the Board of Directors requires teaching members to be faithful Catholics, to affirm in writing their fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, and to teach in full accord with it.
Salary will be determined within the context of SWC’s nature as a non-profit organization. In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada.
