Senior Vice President for Health Affairs

Wayne State is currently seeking a senior vice president for health affairs with experience in institutional business strategy, private-public partnerships and other third-party deals, real estate transactions, and city placemaking strategy. The university has contracted SP&A Executive Search, which brings a demonstrated record in diverse leader placements, to assist with this search. A search advisory committee to interview and identify qualified candidates for this new leadership position will be chaired by Boris Pasche, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the WSU Department of Oncology and president and chief executive officer of the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, and co-chaired by Debra Schutte, associate dean for faculty affairs in the College of Nursing. The committee will be broad and inclusive, and will be composed of representatives from each of the health science colleges, university and shared governance leadership, transdisciplinary research centers and others. The committee membership will be named shortly.  

A prospectus and application information will be available on this page in the near future. The campus community is encouraged to share this posting with potential candidates who are believed to be a good fit with Wayne State’s needs.
