With an annual budget of around $6 million, the Institute is supported by a combination of grants and income from an endowment valued at nearly $60 million. A recent planning process chaired by the Provost and including faculty from a range of disciplines, senior administrators, and Institute staff has produced a road map for Annenberg’s future directions that calls for greater integration within Brown’s academic mission and strategic priorities, including the creation of Institute-based faculty positions.

An earned doctorate and scholarly record appropriate for a tenured faculty appointment.

Appreciation of the important role of research in informing policy and practice, and also of engaging community stakeholders.

Ability to lead an executive team in managing an increasingly complex organization with many different constituencies (faculty, staff, students, Board of Overseers, University administrators, donors, visitors, etc.).

A demonstrated record of successful fundraising, program development, faculty recruitment, and organizational management, and a leadership style that is both inclusive and directed.
