Chaminade University

Chaminade University of Honolulu seeks a forward-thinking and transformative leader to serve as its next president.  

As the only Catholic University in Hawaiʻi, and one of three Marianist higher-education institutions in the U.S., Chaminade is guided by the understanding that both reason and faith are essential conditions in the pursuit of truth. Chaminade’s community is a family where students mature into world citizens who respect the complexity and diversity of others, value community service, and strive to create a more just society. Its faculty emphasize critical thinking and creative problem solving while mentoring students in more than 25 undergraduate and graduate programs in the fine arts and humanities, sciences and mathematics, behavioral sciences, business and communication, education, and nursing.

Located in the international city of Honolulu on the island of Oʻahu, Chaminade is regarded for its remarkably diverse student body––students come from Hawaiʻi, the mainland U.S., the Pacific region, and beyond. Class sizes are small, with a low student-to-faculty ratio. Students develop professionally through service learning projects, research and internship experiences, and leadership and community networking opportunities. At Chaminade, students receive a personalized education that prepares them for an ever-changing future.

The incoming president will be a person of Catholic faith who lives by and embraces the Catholic faith and Marianist educational philosophy, while preserving and participating in its rich traditions that are embedded across campus. She or he should be accepting of differing viewpoints and welcoming to students, faculty, and staff into the Chaminade ‘ohana (family) of all backgrounds and faith. The next president will be responsible for working collaboratively, transparently and inclusively with faculty, staff, students, and the Board of Regents to develop and articulate a shared vision that accounts for the distinct and unique characteristics of the campus and its community. A leader with strategic planning skills will be important to further strengthen the foundation of Chaminade’s academic programs and resources for a productive and sustainable future. Furthermore, she or he will play a critical role in serving as the institution’s ambassador, spokesperson, and visionary messenger with external constituents locally and beyond.

Inquiries, nominations, and applications are invited. For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by September 6, 2016. Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the leadership profile available at, and the names and contact information of five references.
