Vice President and General Counsel to the University
The University of Oregon (UO) seeks applications for Vice President and General Counsel to the University. The Vice President and General Counsel to the University (VPGC) is the chief legal officer for the University of Oregon, a senior advisor to the President of the University (President), and an officer of the university. The VPGC will be responsible for managing the university's legal affairs, overseeing the office's provision of legal services to the university (including oversight of the Office of the General Counsel and the provision of any outside legal services), overseeing the Office of Public Records, and overseeing records retention and related services. As a member of the president's senior leadership team, the VPGC will work closely with the president and other executive officers on a wide array of matters of legal import to the institution. In addition, the VPGC will work closely with university units, programs (e.g. student government), and employees.

As the chief legal advisor to the President and the Board, the VPGC will need to be familiar with aspects of law impacting a comprehensive public research institution and must be able to navigate complex environments with intellect and pragmatism. The VPGC must be able to provide support as the president and senior leaders execute university initiatives.

The VPGC will also serve as a senior advisor to the president on a variety of non-legal matters and will work closely with government and community relations staff with respect to existing and emerging higher education legislation.

This position will be serving an increasingly culturally diverse community. Candidates who share our commitment to diversity, and who have the ability to build understanding and resolve conflict across cultural and other differences are particularly encouraged to apply.

For complete information on the job description, qualifications, and application process, please see posting #15212 on the UO Human Resources webpage: http://hr.uoregon.edu/jobs.
