Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

The University of Scranton

Scranton, Pennsylvania


The University of Scranton, a private, Catholic and Jesuit institution, seeks an innovative and collaborative leader for its next Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs (the Provost). The University of Scranton is a close-knit community, deeply committed to its Catholic and Jesuit mission. At Scranton, the Jesuit ideals are not only understood, they are lived. University faculty and staff work tirelessly to provide a deep, purposeful undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral education to students to ensure that they have a transformative experience during their years at Scranton. From the classroom to the far reaches of the globe, students learn what it means to care for others. As people devoted to the Jesuit maxim of Cura Personalis – individual attention care and respect for the dignity and uniqueness of each member of the University community – they go on to effect change in the world. The University of Scranton community takes pride in the well-rounded individuals students become, and has faith that they will “go forth and set the world on fire,” as St. Ignatius of Loyola once said.


The next Provost will join the University and the provost’s academic leadership team to bring creative leadership to advancing the university through excellence, innovation, building an inclusive community and campus culture, and growing partnerships in service of the University’s mission. With the recent installation of its 29th president, Joseph G. Marina, S.J., the University of Scranton’s three Colleges are energized and poised to take on the challenges facing higher education. A highly committed and collaborative faculty and staff await the new Provost, with opportunities to develop advancements to the curriculum including a focus on the humanities as a foundation for transformation and engaging students in exploring their faith, discerning their purpose, and pursuing their passion.  This is an outstanding opportunity for a strategic thinker who lives the values rooted in the mission of the University. The ideal candidate will bring extensive academic administrative leadership; the ability to engage others in developing and implementing academic vision; a commitment to shared governance; and a passionate commitment to, and demonstrated success with, diversity and inclusion efforts. The University seeks a leader who will partner with the President, the Deans, and the faculty to develop and launch innovative programs of outstanding quality. The Provost will have astute financial management skills and a proven capacity to inspire and engage faculty, students, staff, and alumni.


Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm, has been retained to assist in the recruitment of the next Provost. Applications, nominations and inquiries should be directed in confidence to:
