About Gonzaga: Gonzaga College was founded 130 years ago by Fr. Joseph Cataldo of the Society of Jesus (“the Jesuits”), at the invitation of city founders who were inspired by the Jesuits who were working among the indigenous Native American peoples of the region. Located on the northern bank of the Spokane River, Gonzaga University today prepares students well to enter their chosen field or profession, to serve the common good, to engage in a dialogue with multiple cultures and religious or ethical traditions, and to pursue a justice rooted in faith. Gonzaga, the oldest and largest Roman Catholic university in the Pacific Northwest, is an independent institution located in Spokane, Washington that educates and inspires nearly 8,000 students to shape a better world through critical thinking, creativity, leadership, service, and faith. Gonzaga’s educational philosophy is rooted in the centuries-old Jesuit model of educating the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. Gonzaga’s students discover how to integrate science and art, faith and reason, action and contemplation.
Since its founding in 1887, Gonzaga has grown into a comprehensive university situated on a stunning 150-acre campus overlooking the Spokane River. Students can enroll in a multitude of undergraduate or graduate programs. Enrollment for the 2017–18 academic year is 7,731 students, which includes 5,209 undergraduate, 1,697 graduate, 284 doctoral, 316 law, and 150 medical education students through a unique partnership with the University of Washington. Increasing the racial and ethnic diversity of its student body has been a priority for Gonzaga, and today approximately 25% of its undergraduates come from an ethnically underrepresented population.
The Position of Provost & Senior Vice President: During the past 25 years, Gonzaga University has matured from its original roots as a residential “liberal arts college” into one of the most dynamic, medium-sized comprehensive institutions in the United States. With a demonstrated commitment to exceptional learning and to the broad benefits of ethics-informed education at all levels – and as a consequence of its growth and institutional transformation – Gonzaga University now seeks its first Provost & Senior Vice President. The Provost & Senior Vice President will partner with the President and the other cabinet officers to provide visionary leadership to the institution as it enters a future characterized by faith, diversity, sustainability, community, and shared mission.
The Provost & Senior Vice President will provide leadership focused on further developing and amplifying an integrative model of Jesuit education, one that seeks to more powerfully unite the work of academics and the work of student development to provide a coherent student experience. The Provost & Senior Vice President serves as the institution’s chief academic officer and, in collaboration with the academic deans and senior staff, provides strategic direction, resource prioritization and policy formation for the university’s ten major academic divisions: The College of Arts and Sciences; The School of Business Administration; The School of Education; The School of Engineering and Applied Science; The School of Law; The Foley Center Library; The School of Nursing and Human Physiology; The School of Leadership Studies; The UW-Gonzaga Medical Education Partnership; and The Center for Global Engagement (and through it, the Gonzaga-in-Florence Program [Florence, Italy]). The Provost & Senior Vice President will work closely with, and directly supervise, the Vice President for Student Development and the numerous areas within this Division to ensure that the experience essential to the Gonzaga experience – one of creating a community- and values-based environment of responsibility, diversity, inclusion, and equity is supported and nurtured. Furthermore, the successful candidate will, together with the President and Deans, guide faculty, students, and academic administrators in living out the University’s strategic plan, which seeks to integrate a rigorous academic experience with a mission-based student experience, woven into the fabric of the vibrant learning community that distinguishes Gonzaga.
Gonzaga’s Commitment to Human Diversity: Diversity affirms our faith-inspired commitment to an inclusive community where human differences thrive within a campus community of equality, solidarity, and common human nature. We seek to nourish difference in an environment characterized by mutual respect and the sustainable creation of a campus climate that attracts and retains community members from diverse backgrounds. In this context, age, gender, ethnicity, disability, social class, religion, culture, sexual orientations, language and other human differences all contribute to the richness of our academic community life. These differences grace us individually as human being and collectively as a Jesuit, Catholic and humanistic university striving to fulfill our Mission. We aspire to create a university environment that is welcoming and accessible to all staff, faculty, students, and other members of the Gonzaga community regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.
