Update – March 16, 2017

The FPU Provost Search Committee has been working with our AGB Search consulting team over the last few weeks making final preparations for the official launch of the search, which occurred last week.   The provost/senior vice president profile used to advertise the search and attract candidates has been approved and published electronically and is now available on our web site and the AGB Search web site.  Advertisements were placed in a number of national publications: Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Education, Women in Higher Education, Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities job board, Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, Council for Christian Colleges & Universities job board, and The Christian Leader (classified section) publication of the Mennonite Brethren church.  Announcement of the FPU Provost search opportunity has been widely circulated to higher education leaders throughout the United States with special emphasis on those in Christian higher education.  We are currently receiving nominations, inquiries and applications during the month of March.  The Committee will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis.  Committee members will have a heavy load of responsibility during March and early April – this in addition to their ongoing full time regular teaching and administrative duties, so we covet your prayers and your support for them during this time.  We continue to urge all of the Fresno Pacific family to pray regularly and earnestly for the committee members and all those who will be a part of the search process.  Thank you for your support.
