SJC Presidential Search and Selection Advisory Committee

St. Joseph’s College (SJC) has begun a search for a new President and the Board of Governors of SJC has approved the establishment of a Presidential Search and Selection Advisory Committee in search of a candidate to begin in the position starting July 2021. The purpose of the committee is to identify, evaluate and recommend to the Board of Governors a suitable candidate for the position of President.

St. Joseph’s College, an affiliated college of the University of Alberta, was established in 1926 to provide instruction in Catholic theology and philosophy and residences for men and women. The College’s relationship with the University of Alberta exemplifies a uniquely Canadian model of Catholic higher education, grounded in the theology of encounter and engagement that Pope Francis most recently articulated in Evangelii Gaudium (2013). For this reason, the College’s programs and research over the last 90 years have contributed to the distinctiveness of the University of Alberta as a leading university in Canada and the world.
