Executive Vice President and Provost

Executive Vice President and Provost

Santa Clara University seeks a visionary and entrepreneurial leader to serve as its first executive vice president and provost. The EVP/Provost will be a student-centered academic leader with a deep commitment to excellence and to the values of a Jesuit Catholic education. Santa Clara offers an education that invites students to develop every dimension of their humanity, to work toward social justice and a more humane, just, and sustainable world, and to engage with the high-tech innovations of the surrounding community.

Founded in 1851, Santa Clara University is located in the heart of Silicon Valley. The University is home to more than 6,100 undergraduate students, 3,050 graduate students, 900 faculty, 1,050 staff, and 104,000 alumni worldwide.

President Julie Sullivan, appointed in July 2022, has redefined the role of provost as executive vice president and provost (EVP/Provost), reflecting the centrality of both the academic and student life activities of the University, and also signifying the vital role this new leader will play in partnering with her to develop an integrated, holistic vision for academic life and student life, in accord with the distinctive tradition of cura personalis-educating each person to flourish in mind, body, and spirit.

The new EVP/Provost will be an exceptional executive leader who will empower other campus leaders, allocate resources to support fulfillment of the University's ambitions, champion a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, and inspire innovation across the University.

The EVP/Provost will bring several key characteristics, including the ability to galvanize the community around a common vision for the future of a nationally ranked university distinguished by the teacher-scholar model and the holistic formation of students, and by its Jesuit Catholic mission. The EVP/Provost will have experience in an institution of similar complexity and commitment to excellence, a creative and entrepreneurial spirit, and a substantial record of advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
