Vice-President & Academic Dean, Newman Theological College (Edmonton, AB)

Newman Theological College (NTC) is actively seeking its next Vice-President & Academic Dean. Reporting to the President, the VP & Academic Dean leads the faculty in fulfilling the College’s mission of preparing laity, religious, and ordained ministers for Christian service and leadership in Western Canada and beyond.
Located in the heart of Edmonton on the river valley NTC is a private, Roman Catholic school of theology. Its charter to confer degrees was originally granted by the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on April 29, 1969. NTC has been an accredited member of the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) in the United States and Canada since 1992. In 2019 NTC received accreditation for a BA program from the province of Alberta.
NTC carries out its mission for the Church in an ongoing partnership with St. Joseph Seminary whose particular mission is the human, spiritual and pastoral formation of future diocesan priests. Both institutions remain distinct, interdependent, and complementary. It also provides the academic formation for seminarians from Holy Spirit Seminary, the national seminary for the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchies in Canada. The College offers the M.Div., M.R.E., M.T.S. and M.Th. degrees accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and a new BA in Catholic Studies accredited by the province of Alberta, in addition to a number of certificate and online courses for faith formation and preparation for particular ministries. In this way, NTC is infused with the life-giving collaboration of all members of the Body of Christ that is the beauty and grace of the Church.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in theology or a related discipline and be a committed Catholic. The candidate shall have a demonstrated commitment to academic excellence, collegial leadership, and familiarity with the diverse nature of the Catholic Church’s pastoral works. The Academic Dean typically teaches two courses each year. The College currently has teaching needs in Church History, Systematic Theology, Sacramental Theology and Liturgical Theology. However, academic leadership and administrative ability will be given priority in determining the successful candidate.
The salary will be commensurate with previous experience. Review of applications will begin 1 November 2022 and continue until the position is filled. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in keeping with federal law, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
