Hello.

I am an associate prof. with tenure at a large state school. I am looking to move into an administrative role in the next few years, but have one major concern.

After 12 years of marriage and decades of spotless credit, the marriage ended and I am forced to declare Chapter 7 bankruptcy. My spouse was arrested for domestic violence and I had to leave immediately. Going from 2 incomes to 1 rather abruptly was unmanageable and my spouse refuses to help or help maintain payment on our home, etc.

Will that eliminate me from consideration since fiscal responsibility is key in those roles?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I doubt it, although my institution does a background check on all employees, and a credit check on anyone with a Purchasing Card.

Positively impactful on stakeholder synergies

If they run a credit check they will probably ask you to explain, because of the issue of access to institutional funds.  But they should accept your explanation.
