      Crestwood, NY [OCA Communications/SVS] � The Board of Trustees of Saint Vladimir�s Orthodox Theological Seminary, Crestwood, NY, announces a vacancy in the office of Dean, to be filled effective July 1, 2007. Applications, nominations, and expressions of interest for the position of Dean are now being accepted.

      Saint Vladimir's Seminary is a graduate school of theology within the canonical jurisdiction of the Orthodox Church in America. The seminary's programs are registered by the New York State Education Department and accredited nationally by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.

      The seminary seeks to serve the Orthodox Church through theological education and scholarship. It educates future priests and Church leaders and contributes directly to Orthodox theology through the scholarly activities of its faculty.

      Saint Vladimir�s Seminary grants the Master of Theology [MTh], Master of Divinity [MDiv], and Master of Arts [MA] degrees.

      Numerous strategic developments are underway at Saint Vladimir�s Seminary, including an enhanced focus on training for pastoral ministry in the Good Pastor Curriculum, new initiatives for Saint Vladimir�s Seminary Press, and improved student facilities.

      The Dean is the chief executive officer of the seminary and supervises all spiritual, educational, financial, and legal activities of the seminary. The Dean represents the seminary before ecclesiastical, educational, religious, and civil agencies.

Paramount is the ability to articulate and communicate the vision of the seminary and to interact effectively with the entire seminary community, supporters, donors and constituencies of the seminary.

      Applications should include a letter demonstrating the candidate�s suitability for the position, a current curriculum vitae, and a list of the names and contact details of at least four individuals who have agreed to serve as references. All communications will be held in strict confidence.
