As the national university of the Catholic Church in the United States, founded and sponsored by the bishops of the country with the approval of the Holy See, The Catholic University of America is committed to being a comprehensive Catholic and American institution of higher learning, faithful to the teachings of Jesus Christ as handed on by the Church.

The Division of Student Affairs attends to students’ residential life, athletics, campus activities, extra- and co-curricular learning experiences, and physical and mental health and well-being. It works in close cooperation with Academic Affairs and Campus Ministry.

The Vice President for Student Affairs (“VPSA”) should understand, embrace, and make a significant contribution to the University’s distinctive Catholic mission and understand how to provide initiatives that will enhance overall student satisfaction and retention. The successful candidate will be energetic, able to lead a large and talented staff, and able to envision and implement various initiatives to enrich the lives of students and to build upon recent gains in retention.

The VPSA reports to the President and is responsible for the vision, leadership, and strategic direction to the Division of Student Affairs. Like all other units of the University, the Division of Student Affairs seeks to advance the good of students in light of the University’s Catholic academic mission. The VPSA oversees a division that comprises 120 FTE staff positions, 70 graduate positions, and upwards of 400 undergraduate students.
