The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the University of Texas at El Paso in the search for an Assistant Vice President for Advancement Services.

Reporting to the Vice President for Institutional Advancement and overseeing a team of 12 staff, the Assistant Vice President for Advancement Services will be an experienced, strategic leader with a track record of success. As the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) builds out its advancement team, it is seeking a highly collaborative leader to manage and enhance its existing Advancement Services team, which includes gift processing, data and reporting, and business intelligence. The Assistant Vice President will work strategically, using data to generate bold and innovative ideas for growth, and at the tactical level, forecasting, optimizing reports, analyzing trends, and solving problems. The Assistant Vice President will exhibit an understanding of the crucial role of advancement services to the success of advancement goals, displaying excitement and passion for the opportunity to positively influence development and engagement success. The Institutional Advancement division is hybrid (a combination of on- and off-campus). The University will consider candidates that prefer to work remotely. Employees working remotely are expected to travel to El Paso with some regularity.

The University of Texas at El Paso is America’s leading Hispanic-serving university, with a student body that is 84% Hispanic. It enrolls more than 24,000 students in 169 bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in 10 colleges and schools. With more than $109 million in total annual research expenditures, UTEP is an R1 research university, a designation given to the top 5% of colleges and universities nationally and is ranked sixth in Texas for federal research expenditures at public universities. 

Set against the backdrop of the Franklin Mountains in the Chihuahuan Desert, UTEP is located at the heart of the U.S.-Mexico border in one of the largest binational communities in the world. UTEP’s award-winning, sustainably designed campus landscape and unique Bhutanese architecture create an energizing and tranquil oasis in the bustling El Paso-Juárez metroplex. Whether students live on campus or in the community, opportunities abound to become involved with student organizations, research, community service, internships, study abroad, student employment, Division I athletics, and dozens of cultural and entertainment activities. UTEP has a global reach that includes 80 international agreements with institutions throughout the world, including 23 with Mexico, and boasts more than 133,000 alumni living in 76 countries.

UTEP was ranked number 1 in the U.S. for its success in achieving both competitive research and student social mobility. It is also one of the only top tier research universities in the country with a majority Hispanic student population. UTEP has one of the lowest out-of-pocket costs of all U.S. research institutions and has been recognized as a leader in social mobility for helping graduates move from family incomes in the bottom 20% to the top 20%.

As an employer, the UT System aspires to be a welcoming and supportive place to work that embraces differences—not only because they make it a more creative, thoughtful, and stronger organization, but because it is the right thing to do. Underpinning this philosophy is a belief that talent is universal—distributed evenly regardless of gender, race, national origin, ethnicity, age or anything else—but, unfortunately, opportunity is not. The UT System has both an opportunity and a responsibility to lead in matching talent and opportunity, and it is determined to have a leadership team and workforce that are as diverse as the people it serves.

The University of Texas at El Paso will consider candidates with a broad range of backgrounds. A master's degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience and at least eight years of experience working in higher education advancement services, including at least two years of management experience, is preferred. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of the University of Texas at El Paso as well as the responsibilities and qualifications stated in the prospectus. Research shows that men apply for jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria. Yet, women and people from systemically marginalized communities will only apply if they meet every requirement. If you believe that you could excel in this role, you are encouraged to apply.

The salary range for this position is $125,000 to $170,000 annually.
