Company: Princeton University
Job Title: Director of Health Promotion and Prevention Services (HPPS)
Job Location: Princeton, NJ

Keeling & Associates, LLC (K&A) is leading the search for the first Director of Health Promotion and Prevention Services (HPPS) in University Health Services (UHS) at Princeton University. This is a recently-established and key position, created in response to the UHS strategic plan, and designed to provide essential leadership in planning and implementing innovative, evidence-based, and goal-directed health promotion and prevention efforts. These efforts respond to known and emerging high-priority campus health concerns in strategic, flexible, and adaptive ways.
This is not an ordinary directorship in campus health promotion; expectations for the role are high, and they do not include simply “doing programs”or working with peer educators. UHS is looking for new ideas, different approaches, and inspirational leadership. The position will demand collaborative participation in UHS leadership and decision making; HPPS must be thoroughly integrated in the work of UHS, and it cannot become a silo within the organization. The position will have both flexibility and accountability for re-thinking, restructuring, and re-energizing Princeton’s health promotion and health communications efforts. The position will have access to unusually good resources, including 7 staff members, and strong support from the other directors in UHS.
UHS is a fully accredited health care facility providing comprehensive health services to more than 7,500 Princeton undergraduate and graduate students and specialized services to Princeton University faculty, staff, and employees.

Position Description:
The Director of HPPS will lead a talented multidisciplinary team focused on creating, supporting, and sustaining healthy learning communities and outcomes. The Director will champion goals and ways and means that address all interrelated levels of Princeton’s campus ecology, including individual, interpersonal, community, and environmental. In collaboration with other UHS personnel and University partners, the Director will play a visible and trusted role in assessing, identifying, and proposing plans to address campus health trends and priorities, and serves as a health prevention advisor to senior University leadership. The Director strategizes to strengthen protective health factors; amplify campus strengths; and reduce personal, campus, and community health risk factors. The Director will play a key role in devising and creating a wider, coherent framework for health promotion that covers harm mitigation and wellness across campus; subsumed within this larger framework will be alcohol and high risk drinking, mental health prevention and stigma and distress support, and strength building—resilience training/stress reduction, and prevention of power-based violence (such as incidences of sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking). The issues are not unique to Princeton, but, with the Director’s leadership and vision, Princeton should develop and use exceptionally effective strategies to address them.
This position reports to the Executive Director of UHS and is a key member of the Executive Director’s leadership team (“Directors Group”). Considerable attention and resources will be dedicated to supporting this Group’s leadership, developing the talents of its members, and supporting its effective functioning as a team.
Principal duties include: (1) leadership and management of program goals and outcomes; (2) supervising and mentoring a team of 8 staff members, including SHARE (Sexual Harassment, Assault/Advising, Resources, and Education), which is a sub-office within HPPS; (3) engaged and active participation in the UHS senior leadership team; (4) responsibility for the area's operating budgets; (5) overseeing the area's strategic planning process, plans, goals, priorities, and establishing measurable objectives in alignment with the mission, vision, strategic direction, and priorities of UHS and its key partners; (6) collaboration with key stakeholders on and off campus to develop, implement, and maintain comprehensive, highly visible, evidence-informed prevention efforts that achieve measurably high-quality public health outcomes; (7) utilizing appropriate assessment techniques to evaluate health promotion and prevention programming; (8) overseeing strategies for fostering student engagement in health promotion and prevention efforts; (9) central coordination of all UHS area alcohol-related programs; (10) implementing innovative environmental strategies to promote good health and academic success that will transform students into informed consumers, advocates of health care systems and citizens invested in community health; (11) disseminating and presenting health trends and data to key campus stakeholders; (12) advising senior leadership on health promotion and public health-related communication strategies; and (13) coordinating the Healthier Princeton Advisory Board—a standing committee of University members and external experts who meet to support health and wellbeing at Princeton.

Requirements:
The position requires a master's degree, and a doctorate is strongly preferred, in public health, health promotion, health policy, or a closely related field; and advanced certification (Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) or MCHES). Candidates must have at least 5 to 8 years of progressively responsible, relevant experience including professional work in a private or public healthcare system; a college or university health program; a public health or community health-related government agency or program (municipal, state, or federal); a community-based organization that has successfully addressed one or more core health questions; or a philanthropic foundation that funds campus, community, or larger-scale health improvement or risk reduction programs. Successful candidates will also have demonstrated proficiency in campus, community, or public health research, including community needs assessments, survey design, environmental scans, and other qualitative and quantitative methods. The person selected for this position will be an experienced and proven leader, thinker, and manager with demonstrated ability and effectiveness in creating, developing, implementing, and assessing effective and contextually appropriate health promotion programs and interventions.
This is a full-time administrative position; salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Princeton University provides competitive and attractive fringe benefits.

Application Process:
We encourage those who are interested in this position to submit an application by visiting Jobs @ Princeton (https://jobs.princeton.edu). Dr. Almeda R. Jacks, Senior Consultant for Executive Search, is leading this search. Confidential review of materials will begin immediately and continue until the appointment is made.
