Position Purpose

Founded in 1769, Dartmouth College is a member of the Ivy League and consistently ranks among the world's greatest academic institutions. As an R1 institution with high research activity, Dartmouth has forged a singular identity for combining its deep commitment to outstanding undergraduate liberal arts and graduate education with distinguished research and scholarship in the Arts and Sciences and its four leading graduate schools—the Geisel School of Medicine, the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, Thayer School of Engineering, and the Tuck School of Business. The College serves a total enrollment of 6,500 students, employs over 4,200 faculty and staff, and encompasses over 161 administrative, academic, residential, and athletic buildings. With its quarter term academic calendar, Dartmouth's highly residential 269 acre main campus remains a very active 24/7 environment year-round. The College is located in the small town of Hanover, New Hampshire, judged one of the best places to live due to its strong sense of community, rich cultural life, and regional resources that include major teaching hospitals, a burgeoning high-tech sector with global connections, and extensive recreational opportunities.

Reporting to the Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration, the Director of Safety and Security & Emergency Operations is responsible for the comprehensive operations of Dartmouth College's safety and security services and emergency preparedness and response. The Director leads an unarmed, non-sworn team of approximately 30 security and dispatch professionals, and manages and administers safety and security programs, physical facility security, compliance, training, emergency preparedness, and critical incident response for the College. The Director is actively engaged with the campus community, and works collaboratively with administrators, faculty and students of the College, as well as with local, state and federal authorities to provide a safe, inclusive campus environment that supports academic excellence, independent thought, cultural collaboration, and the educational mission of Dartmouth College.
