Samuel Merritt University invites applications and nominations for the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO), reporting to the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and sitting on the President's Cabinet. The CFO provides leadership of fiscal management and business services at SMU in support of its mission, vision, tenets, and strategic directions, and moves forward a vision for lifelong learning of its graduates.

Samuel Merritt University (SMU) has a wonderful 113 year history. Under President Wang’s leadership SMU is “on the move” with a growth strategy to elevate SMU as one of the premier comprehensive health sciences universities in the country. Samuel Merritt University is a private, not-for-profit, health sciences institution with campuses in Oakland, Sacramento, San Mateo and Fresno, California. The University is regionally accredited by WSCUC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) and offers degrees in nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant and podiatric medicine with some degrees and certificates available online. With its strong academics, outstanding faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and deep commitment to the community, Samuel Merritt University has a rich tradition of educating skilled and compassionate healthcare professionals. SMU is an integral part of patient care in Northern California and one of the largest educators of registered nurses in California, and many of the physical and occupational therapists, physician assistants and podiatric physicians who provide care in the region are graduates of SMU's programs.

The University's average graduation rate is 95 percent and student scores on licensure pass rates are 90 percent or above for first-time test takers in six programs. Student enrollment is nearly 3,000, and the University strives to reflect the community it serves by recruiting students with a variety of ethnic, cultural and economic backgrounds. SMU attracts a diverse student body with respect to age, gender and ethnicity. About 46% of students are age 30 or over; 76% of students identify as female; 30% of students identify as white, 31% as Asian, 19% as Hispanic and 7% as Black. The financial aid office is able to provide over 98% of its students with the proper amount of financial aid to cover the cost of tuition, fees and living expenses. Samuel Merritt University's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is expressed through its mission statement, "to educate students to become highly skilled and compassionate healthcare professionals who positively transform the experience of care in diverse communities." In light of the demographics of its local communities and the vital role a diverse healthcare workforce plays in reducing healthcare disparities, the University has identified diversity, equity and inclusion as a strategic imperative and core strategy embedded in the ongoing work of the institution at all levels.

At SMU, students receive personalized instruction and gain hands-on clinical experience early in their programs. Early clinical exposure is key to training students in the technical skills and sound reasoning needed to provide care and prepare them to transform the experience of care in diverse communities. Samuel Merritt University educates students to become highly skilled and compassionate healthcare professionals who positively transform the experience of care in diverse communities. Students learn to advance health equity and make a lasting impact on individual health and community well-being. The philosophy of teaching and learning at Samuel Merritt University consist of a system of beliefs and values about the partnership between faculty and

students in the teaching and learning process. The philosophy is directed toward the preparation of healthcare practitioners whose practice is planned and coordinated around the unique qualities of each person served. The philosophy requires that SMU graduates use sound reasoning which incorporates the current best evidence, clinical expertise and the preference of the people served. Programs, curricula and courses are designed to value active, experiential learning and collegial, scholarly and effective interaction among students and faculty. Clinical and practical applications, grounded in the basic sciences, social sciences and humanities, provide a critical foundation for learning in the health professions.

The CFO will establish collaborative, cooperative and respectful working relationships with SMU’s multi-constituent leadership. The CFO supports the COO as a staff liaison to the Board of Trustees’ Finance Committee, Investment Committee, and Audit and Compliance. The CFO will play a significant role in ensuring SMU’s fiscal security of a current operating budget of approximately $100M, and as of 2020, approximately $272M of unrestricted liquid assets in cash investments and restricted investments. There will be ample opportunity to shape the University's administrative, financial and workplace culture for both the near and long-term—with sensitivity toward the preservation and protection of the SMU community. The CFO will value communication, respect shared governance and be an advocate for best practices that promote inclusive decision-making and mutual respect, creating an environment of trust and a sense of community across the institution.

The CFO oversees four highly capable departmental leaders, while drawing on the collective knowledge and experience of the division to effectively and efficiently serve the SMU community. Superb communication skills are essential, as are exceptional change management skills and the ability to lead, support and strengthen diverse teams.

The University is open to considering a semi-remote work finance team culture. Regardless of the frequency of the remote schedule, the University seeks a leader who is able to navigate the complexities of leading through video meetings, chat systems and modern work-environment systems of collaboration and is able to ensure these extra tools become advantages in a semi-remote work culture when needed.

All applications, nominations and inquiries are invited. Applications should include, as separate documents, a CV or resume and a letter of interest addressing the themes in the leadership profile at www.wittkieffer.com.
