The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago is seeking candidates for Vice President for Administration. The Vice President for Administration is primarily responsible for stewarding the efficient and effective operation of this institution’s financial and physical resources, including those persons employed to serve and support all aspects of its mission. The Vice President attends to this with a significant focus upon preserving the financial soundness of the seminary, while also realizing other missional considerations are relevant. The Vice President serves as strategic advisor to the President and the Board of Directors, recommending the overall administrative goals, policies, programs, and practices that will develop a sustainable economic model for ensuring the long-term viability of the seminary.  This position emerges from a reorganization that brings together previously separated finance and operations offices – partly to improve workflows and gain efficiencies, but mostly to seek more unified, innovative, and strategic oversight of the many different institutional resources that support the core educational mission of the seminary. Having recently implemented major improvements in reporting and forecasting (including software, accounting, policy, and staffing changes to support this), but still weathering financial stresses well-known across the field of graduate theological education, we seek a Vice President who can help bring us to the next level of financial responsibility and planning.  For a full job description please go to:  Resumes should be submitted to Tom Utroske at Blue Note Search at
