California State University, San Bernardino invites nominations and applications for the position of Associate Provost for Academic Research (APAR). The Associate Provost will join an engaged team in the Division of Academic Affairs to provide leadership for research and sponsored programs at the R2 level.


Operating from two campuses (San Bernardino and Palm Desert), California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) has grown from its founding in 1965 as a state college with an inaugural class of 293 students to a major metropolitan, R2 Research University with approximately 19,000 active students and 120,000 alumni. Approximately 2,400 employees are dedicated to helping students succeed. The faculty-to-student ratio is 1:23.


A designated Minority and Hispanic-Serving Institution, CSUSB graduates approximately 5,000 students annually. The university offers more than 70 traditional baccalaureate and master’s degree programs, education credential and certificate programs, and a doctorate program in educational leadership within five academic colleges: the College of Arts and Letters, Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration, James R. Watson & Judy Rodriguez Watson College of Education, College of Natural Sciences, and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.


The Associate Provost for Academic Research reports to the Vice Provost for Academic Programs and ensures the integration of goals and objectives with the overall strategic plan of the campus for research enterprises. In collaboration with internal and external constituencies, this position will oversee the promotion and facilitation of the research, scholarship, and creative activities across campus, ensuring that research compliance is carried out according to the research agreements.

As a member of the Provost’s leadership team, the successful candidate will be knowledgeable about all aspects of the campus. The APAR will support a culture of student and faculty research opportunities, make recommendations on all matters pertaining to research and external support, and provide direction in developing University research policies and practices.
