Provost Search

Fresno Pacific University (FPU) invites nominations and applications for the position of provost.

Fresno Pacific University is embarking on a renewed search for a Provost. We are committed to finding an individual who can not only adapt to current conditions but join a new and dynamic President’s Cabinet in actively contributing to shaping the future of FPU. Despite the challenges being faced, this presents an exciting opportunity for transformative leadership that will contribute to the growth and success of the students who attend Fresno Pacific University.

Fresno Pacific University offers undergraduate and graduate programs that couple academic preparation and a strong ethical foundation in a community that honors Christ and supports students. Traditional and adult students study on the main Fresno campus, which includes Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary, or at regional campuses throughout California’s Central Valley, as well as online. FPU’s strong graduation rate includes its Hispanic and first-generation students, each making up more than half the student body, and the university is a proud Hispanic Serving Institution. FPU is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and the seminary is accredited by the Association of Theological Seminaries.

FPU seeks an accomplished leader who is also an effective and selfless team player; someone who will be a respected leader in a Christian university serving traditional undergraduate students, adult degree completion students, graduate students, online students, and continuing education students; a leader who welcomes the challenges of a university that is rapidly changing and who can comfortably work with the president and members of his cabinet to implement a progressive and evolving strategy for growth.

The provost of Fresno Pacific University will be a servant-leader who possesses a terminal degree and a deep appreciation of the value of Christian higher education. The provost will embrace the USMB Confession of Faith and the values of the Mennonite Brethren.
