Indiana University seeks an eminent and accomplished leader to serve as the next Dean of the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies.
HLS is the fifth largest international affairs school in the country by total enrollment, provides language instruction in more than 70 unique languages (the most of any U.S. university), and is a leading innovator in rigorous, multidisciplinary, policy-relevant academic study. HLS was founded in 2012 and named in honor of Indiana statemen, Representative Lee Hamilton and the late Senator Richard Lugar, two of the most influential and bipartisan foreign policy leaders in American history.
Since its founding, HLS has quickly established itself as a national and global leader in both international affairs and language and regional studies, combining IU’s rich legacy of language, global, and area studies with cutting edge applied research and practical focus. Its exceptional faculty are at the forefront of thought leadership, teaching, scholarship, and service. The School has developed a strong pipeline of graduates, well placed in jobs in academia, government, business, nonprofits, NGOs, think tanks, international organizations, media outlets, and other emerging fields.
The Hamilton Lugar School is at a truly exciting moment as it enters its second decade. Working in collaboration with an exceptional faculty, staff, student body, and alumni, the next Dean will have an extraordinary opportunity to take Hamilton Lugar to new levels of excellence, visibility, and impact.
