The new Vice President will be expected to assume responsibilities no later than the opening of the Fall Semester 2018.

A historic institution founded in 1797 as Hartwick Seminary, the College served as the first Lutheran seminary in America, originally located near Cooperstown, NY.  It relocated to Oneonta in 1928.  In 1968 Hartwick College separated from the Lutheran church and began its evolution to a four-year liberal arts college. Located on a 425-acre campus in the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains, Hartwick fulfills its mission of integrating a liberal arts education with experiential learning to inspire curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, personal courage and an enduring passion for learning.

Reporting to the President, the Vice President for Finance (VPF) provides executive leadership for all financial and business-related matters.  Overseeing the College’s endowment of over $75 million and an annual operating budget of approximately $50 million (2017-18), the VPF is responsible for oversight of debt management, budget, financial accounting, oversight of investments (managed by an outsourced Chief Investment Officer), risk management, Information Technology and dining and facility vendor management.  The VPF is the staff liaison to four Board of Trustee Committees: Audit & Compliance, Finance, Facilities and the Strategic Innovation Committee, which is a new committee focused on revenue generation.  The VPF has responsibility for all financial services related to, and supervision of, the Hartwick College Center for Craft Food and Beverage, Information Technology, the Chemical Hygiene Officer, Facilities and Environmental Health and Safety Manager, the Controller, the Director of Student Accounts and the outsourced functions of the Bookstore and Facilities. The VPF oversees the controller and general accounting, payroll, accounts payable, student accounts, and purchasing services. The VPF develops the College’s annual budget in cooperation with the senior leadership of the College, chairs and convenes the College Wide Budget Advisory Committee, prepares iterative budget projections throughout the budget cycle, and maintains a five-year rolling budget model.  In addition, the Vice President serves on the President’s Cabinet.

To provide the leadership required in this position, the Vice President should possess a combination of personal qualities and professional experience. She/he should possess a high level of energy, integrity, a passionate desire to lead, a commitment to continuous improvement, and a willingness to embrace and overcome challenges and advance the College through a close and collaborative working relationship with the senior leadership team and others across the College. Preference will be given to those with a master’s degree and/or a CPA and experience in higher education; however, candidates from other areas of financial management with an exceptional record of collaborative leadership and success will be considered. The new Vice President will have a record of progressive and effective management experience as well as demonstrated knowledge of endowment management, debt management, financial accounting, budgeting, real estate management, risk management, contract management, and program development. S/he will possess the ability to communicate effectively, believe in the capacity building power of collaboration, and respond to and demonstrate leadership.
