Dennis Jacobs, vice president and associate provost for undergraduate studies at the University of Notre Dame since 2004, has been named the new provost and vice president of academic affairs at Santa Clara University.
In his new post, Jacobs will become the top academic officer for Santa Clara, managing its academic, student life, information services and athletics programs.
He will report directly to Michael Engh, president of the Jesuit university with 8,800 graduate and undergraduate students. He will replace Don Dodson, who has been serving in the job on an interim basis for the past year. Dodson replaced Lucia Gilbert, who retired.
“I feel privileged to have this opportunity to be a part of the next exciting chapter at Santa Clara University,” Jacobs said in a statement. “Santa Clara has all the academic ingredients to make a significant and lasting impact here in the Silicon Valley and globally.”
