At a pivotal moment in its history, the University of Denver invites nominations and applications for the position of

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor.

The University seeks a collaborative, proven and innovative leader who will bring both bold, creative vision and operational competence to the role of Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor. This individual will lead academic affairs within an outstanding and distinctive University to position it for greater national prominence. The University is comprised of a nearly even distribution between undergraduates pursuing liberal education programs and graduate and professional students across several nationally ranked graduate schools and colleges. A growing number of cross-school institutes and centers round out its strengths.

Serving as the chief academic and budget officer, the Provost will have a powerful impact on the academic mission and future direction of the University. The Provost will benefit from the work already begun on DU IMPACT 2025, the University's strategic plan with four interrelated transformative directions, and be readily welcomed as a leading figure in refining, evolving, and driving the strategic plan. In support of the University, and with a focus on the student experience and building the endowment, Chancellor Rebecca Chopp is embarking on a comprehensive campaign in support of DU IMPACT 2025 and anticipates a significant and growing leadership role for the Provost as she begins the critical external work of completing the campaign.

Founded in 1864, the University of Denver is an independent, doctoral granting university with high research activity. The University has become increasingly known nationally and internationally for its creative, 21st-century approaches to problem-based scholarship, a holistic, student-centered approach to learning, and a dedication to the public good through local, national and international partnerships. It plays an integral role in the cultural, social, economic and educational life of the vibrant and fast-growing city and region it calls home.

Known commonly as DU, the University of Denver is located on a 125-acre campus less than 30 minutes from downtown. During the last 20 years, the University has invested more than $640 million in the construction of new buildings, including the Ritchie Center for Sports and Wellness, the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, the Chambers Center for the Advancement of Women, Olin Hall, the Ricketson Law Building, Ruffatto Hall (Morgridge College of Education), the Daniels College of Business, the Joy Burns Center and the Anderson Academic Commons (home of Penrose Library), as well as two new residence halls. In just the last year, the Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science building and the Anna & John J. Sie International Relations Complex, which expands the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, have opened. Currently, the University is in the design phase of three transformational projects: a new Community Commons (reimagined student center), a 500-bed first-year residence hall and a Career Achievement Center-all being designed to support programming aligned with DU IMPACT 2025. The University is also undertaking a campus/community master plan to integrate the campus and its surrounding neighborhood into a knowledge/innovation/residential village. The beautiful campus, with sweeping views of the Denver skyline and the Rocky Mountains, is also designated as an arboretum.
