Saint Joseph’s University


Saint Joseph’s University invites nominations and applications for the position of Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Founded in 1851 in the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence, Saint Joseph’s University (SJU) is a highly ranked Catholic university that provides a rigorous, student-centered education. The University has a total enrollment of 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students and employs more than 300 full-time faculty. The University’s campus transects Philadelphia, the East Coast’s second largest city, and Lower Merion, a suburb along Philadelphia’s historic Main Line, which enables the SJU community to enjoy a beautiful and vibrant campus experience and ready access to a dynamic urban center.

Saint Joseph’s offers a wide array of academic programs through the College of Arts and Sciences, the Erivan K. Haub School of Business and the recently announced and soon-to-launch School of Health Studies and Education, which builds upon dozens of established undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and certificate programs in two rapidly changing and growing sectors. All of Saint Joseph’s programs are designed to be interdisciplinary within and across schools. Student success is achieved through intense academic study led by engaged and accomplished faculty scholars, a comprehensive campus experience in a supportive environment, and robust study abroad, fellowships, service-learning internship and co-op programs.

This rich educational experience prepares each graduate to enter the world with a competitive resume and global perspective. Upon graduation, nearly 100 percent of students are employed, pursuing advanced degrees or volunteering in selective service programs. The University’s alumni – over 60,000 strong – provide a dedicated and powerful network that spans the globe.

Grounded in a social justice mission, Saint Joseph’s maintains a Carnegie Community Engagement Classification. A member of the Atlantic 10 Conference, SJU offers 20 Division I intercollegiate men’s and women’s sports.

Reporting directly to President Mark C. Reed, Ed.D., the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs serves as the chief academic officer, oversees academic affairs and student life, and is responsible for providing the academic vision and setting the strategic academic goals for the University. Candidates must be distinguished scholars  with a record of administrative leadership and a commitment to the Jesuit mission and values of Saint Joseph’s.
