Established as a graduate research center, the University began offering undergraduate education in 1904 and today is home to 12 schools and 21 research facilities. Catholic University is the only American university with ecclesiastical faculties granting canonical degrees in three disciplines. The University's verdant 180-acre campus, located just north of Capitol Hill, allows students easy access to the wide range of educational, cultural and political opportunities that Washington, D.C. has to offer.

With ambitious goals for the future and engaged, committed leadership, The Catholic University of America seeks a charismatic and accomplished vice president for university advancement with proven fundraising leadership experience to assess, strengthen, and, over time, modernize advancement infrastructure, maximize philanthropic opportunities, most importantly with alumni and non-alumni, and secure the University’s reputation for excellence, high achievement, and innovation, with enhanced focus on leveraging CUA’s prominent and unique position as a pontifical university of the Catholic Church and the only institution of higher education founded by U.S. Catholic bishops. The successful candidate will possess a minimum of ten years of experience in progressively responsible advancement leadership positions, which includes work in all functional areas of advancement and leadership of a major capital campaign (planning, implementation, management, and successful conclusion), with demonstrated ability to provide management oversight, leadership, and direction with at least five years of significant supervisory experience. S/he will have a documented history of growing, modernizing, and further professionalizing an advancement function within a complex, mission-driven, academic environment rooted in history and tradition. S/he will have a demonstrated track record of successful frontline fundraising for an institution of higher education, not-for-profit organization, or other environment of similar complexity with multiple stakeholders. Previous leadership experience in higher education is strongly preferred.
