Library Director, University of Central Arkansas, AR

Description:

The University of Central Arkansas seeks a Director of Torreyson Library. The successful applicant will be an inspiring, collaborative leader committed to intellectual excellence and curiosity; student access and success; and diversity, belonging, inclusion, and equity. Our new colleague will articulate a vision for Torreyson Library’s future premised upon how these pillars of UCA’s learning community inherently are interdependent. We welcome applications from candidates of all backgrounds, but we particularly encourage persons to apply who hail from communities the Academy historically has excluded. The Director of Torreyson Library ultimately is responsible for all leadership, planning, budgeting, management, administration, and assessment of UCA’s library services, resources, and facilities.

UCA is located in Conway, a rapidly growing and diversifying, as well as economically vibrant, city of nearly 70,000 people. Conway itself is located only a half-hour’s drive from the state capital, which places Conway within the Little Rock Metro Area—the largest metro in Arkansas. Known as the “City of Colleges,” Conway is home not only to UCA, but also two private colleges, a professional orchestra, several venues that feature live theatrical productions, and several arts museums and galleries. The city boasts a number of major industries, too, in addition to outstanding public schools and several private-school options. About one-quarter of our Conway neighbors are persons of color, while almost 20 percent of Conwegians are Black or African American. Local residents enjoy easy access to myriad outdoor opportunities both nearby Conway and within city limits; the city has constructed many miles of scenic walking trails, bike paths, and parks. Nevertheless, Central Arkansas’s cost of living—to include that associated with real estate, and state and local taxation—ranks well below national averages.
