Presidential Search Institute for Clinical Social Work
The Board of Trustees of the Institute for Clinical Social Work (ICSW) invites applications and nominations for the position of President. Founded nearly 40 years ago, ICSW is a regionally accredited not-for-profit graduate school offering PhD and master's degrees, located in downtown Chicago, IL. The President will take office in Summer 2019 or sooner.
ICSW is the only fully accredited independent institute offering a PhD in clinical social work. The Institute prepares scholars and practitioners to enhance their knowledge and skills in the fields of clinical social work, counseling, and psychotherapy. Graduate programs focus on clinical social work and counseling psychology. Today, the Institute enrolls 95 degree-seeking students and offers both master's and doctoral programs, as well as onsite and online opportunities. The faculty is comprised of 60 of the most experienced social workers, clinicians, researchers, and educators in the Chicago area, regionally and nationally --- drawn from an array of professional settings, including academic institutions, clinical practices, agencies, research firms, public schools, veteran's facilities, and more.
ICSW is seeking a transformational leader, an individual who will provide vibrant and creative leadership. In addition to being a strong advocate of diversity, inclusion and social justice, it is important that the President embrace these values in leading the Institute and in engaging with faculty, staff and students. The President must have the skill-set to lead strategic and operational decisions and will exercise broad responsibilities for all aspects of the academic, student, financial, development, and administrative dimensions of ICSW. These responsibilities are accomplished in a collegial framework with the advice and consultation of the ICSW Academic, Student and Fiscal Affairs leaders of the Institute. The President will report directly to the Board of Trustees.
The successful candidate should have a PhD or doctoral degree from an accredited institution, ideally in the field of clinical social work, behavioral sciences, health sciences or a related discipline.
