Vice President for Graduate Programs and Continuing Studies

(posted 01/18/21)

Hollins University, located in Roanoke, VA, seeks a dynamic, enthusiastic, and collaborative leader to head its efforts in the areas of graduate programs and continuing studies. Reporting directly to the president and serving on the president’s leadership team, the new Vice President for Graduate Programs and Continuing Studies will support existing programs, and create innovative, new graduate, certificate, and not-for-credit programs that will meet adult learners’ interests and needs while supporting and sustaining Hollins’ liberal arts mission, grow the university’s national and international reputation as a leader in graduate education and continuing studies, and bring new revenue to the institution.

About Hollins University: 

Hollins is an independent, liberal arts university offering undergraduate education for women and selected graduate programs for men and women. Founded in 1842, Hollins is Virginia’s oldest chartered women’s college.

Located in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Hollins is a vibrant community with 130 faculty, 701 undergraduates, and 113 graduate students. Known for its creative and highly engaged student body and its distinguished faculty and staff, Hollins prides itself on its nationally-recognized academic programs, a deeply committed alumnae/i network, an extraordinarily beautiful campus, and its unique ability to ensure that each of its students has the opportunity to pursue a transformational college experience. 

About Graduate Programs and Continuing Studies:

Graduate programs at Hollins began in 1958 with the establishment of a master of arts in psychology. Two years later, the English department began offering an M.A. in creative writing (which in 2002, became an M.F.A.); this is a year-round, full-time program that has produced four Pulitzer prize winners to date. In 1969, Hollins launched the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program, featuring an evening class schedule that acknowledges the work and home responsibilities of adult learners in the region; the Master of Arts in Teaching program, created in 1996, also follows this model. Additional graduate programs were established in children’s literature (1992), screenwriting and film studies (1999), dance (2005), and playwriting (2007). These additional programs were developed around the novel concept of intensive, residential, six-week summer terms taught primarily by visiting faculty from other institutions.

Today, Hollins’ coed graduate programs include the M.A. and M.F.A. in children’s literature; M.F.A. in children’s book writing and illustrating; M.F.A. in creative writing; M.F.A. in dance; M.A. in liberal studies; M.F.A. in playwriting; M.A. in teaching and learning; teaching licensure and M.A. in teaching; M.A. in screenwriting and film studies and M.F.A. in screenwriting; and certificate programs in advanced studies, children’s book illustration, new play directing, and new play performance.

With regard to continuing studies, Hollins offers an Executive Certificate in Leadership, the Tinker Mountain Writers’ Workshop, and the Women Working with Clay Symposium. The Children’s Literature Department also offers one-week intensive workshops, and collaborates with the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators to host regional conferences. Additionally, the Hollins Theatre Institute and Playwright’s Lab maintain a network of partnerships with academic, professional, and community theatre through which faculty and students engage in community building and experiential learning by producing and presenting new works.

Continuing studies is an area Hollins is excited to expand in innovative ways under the leadership of the new vice president.
