Office of Academic Affairs
The Office of Academic Affairs oversees academic programs, instruction, student admission and retention, faculty appointment and development, and academic support services. As an institution, PC is dedicated to promoting academic excellence through the liberal arts with a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration, engaged learning, and undergraduate research. Shaped by the Catholic and 800-year Dominican spiritual and intellectual tradition, PC cultivates passion for Truth and thirst for virtue and justice through study, contemplation, and service. This is a tradition that sees the ultimate goals of education in contemplative wisdom – an education that is intellectually probing, ethically centered, and social and morally aware.
We foster a community that celebrates diversity and unity and strive to be a place where all are welcomed, included, and supported. As chief academic officer, I am committed to the highest quality of service to the members of our community and the pursuit of excellence in all our undergraduate and graduate programs.

Provost and Senior Vice President
