The Vice President for Advancement reports to and advises the President of the University, serves on the President's Cabinet, and supervises the departments of Development, Alumni Relations, Advancement Services, and University Archives.
This highly collaborative position as “Chief Aspiration Officer” requires exceptional communication skills, demonstrated fundraising expertise, and the ability to develop and nurture excellent working relationships with University constituencies, including trustees, alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, funders, and corporate, foundation, community, and civic leaders.
The University of Redlands Board of Trustees approved a new comprehensive campaign totaling $200 million, which was initiated in 2013. As of this writing, Forever Yours: The Campaign for University of Redlands has reached $140 million and is well on its way to meeting or exceeding the target by completion in 2020-21. The campaign will develop resources for faculty and students and will support growth of the endowment, scholarships, named professorships, and programmatic support throughout the University.
The University of Redlands is a liberal arts master’s university of approximately 5,000 students in southern California. Located in the inland area adjacent to Los Angeles, the beautiful Redlands campus is within easy distance of snow skiing, hiking and climbing to the north, some of the world’s best beaches to the south and west, Palm Springs and Joshua Tree to the east, and the urban culture of Los Angeles to the west. Its Schools of Business, Education, and Continuing Studies also offer programs in six regional southern California campuses.
Undergraduates may choose from more than 40 academic majors. They also may create their own self-directed majors in the Johnston Center for Integrative Studies—where studies are multidisciplinary; curriculum and majors are by contract; and evaluations are by narrative. Students enjoy small class sizes and an undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio of 12 to 1. At the heart of the Redlands experience is the belief that education should be highly personalized, relevant, and interdisciplinary.
The graduate and professional programs at the University serve about the same number of students as the College, and offer a broad scope of study for undergraduates, graduates, and working professionals. The School of Education is one of the few professional programs in the nation to offer a Doctorate in Leadership for Educational Justice, and it also offers the innovative Spatial Literacy Program for educators and recently added a Special Education Credential program. The School of Business offers master’s degrees in business administration, management, and information technology. Students have an opportunity to participate in international study abroad programs. The School of Continuing Studies programs support lifelong learning and offer busy professionals an opportunity to further their education through workshops, certificate programs, and customized training.
