Joseph Marbach named academic affairs provost at La Salle University

La Salle University
August 31, 2010
La Salle alumnus Joseph R. Marbach, Ph.D., has been named the University’s new Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. Marbach comes to La Salle from Seton Hall University where he last served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He assumed his new position on August 2.

“I am very pleased to rejoin the La Salle University family. My years spent at La Salle as an undergraduate were formative and have shaped my approach to higher education, particularly the focus on the quality of teaching and mentoring of the individual student in a values-oriented environment,” said Marbach. “I am excited to become a partner in La Salle’s mission to prepare students for a lifetime of personal development, success, and service to their local and global communities.”

Since being named Dean at Seton Hall in 2006, Marbach developed and implemented a strategic plan for the College of Arts and Sciences that focused on enhancing and supporting undergraduate education; expanding, promoting and strengthening graduate education; and establishing a presence in the local community while expanding international programs.

During his 16 years at Seton Hall, Marbach served in various positions including Chair of the Department of Political Science, Acting Chair for the Africana Studies Department, and Co-director of the Center for Community Research and Engagement (formerly the Institute for Service Learning).

An award-winning radio analyst, Marbach is often called upon by journalists for his expertise on federalism and intergovernmental relations and state and local government and politics—specifically New Jersey politics.

Marbach has taught numerous faculty seminars sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Fulbright Summer Institute. He is currently the President of the New Jersey Political Science Association and has also been a member of the Council of the American Political Science Association’s Section on Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations.

“I am delighted to have Joe join the La Salle University community,” said Brother Michael J. McGinniss, F.S.C., Ph.D., President of La Salle University. “He brings a commitment to strategic planning and its connection to the University’s mission, experience in relationship building with faculty and staff, familiarity with Catholic higher education, and a track record of program development, fiscal responsibility, fundraising, and service to society.”

A native of the Juniata Park section of Philadelphia, Marbach is a graduate of Northeast Catholic High School and a 1983 magna cum laude graduate of La Salle University. Marbach received his doctoral and Master’s degrees in political science from Temple University, where he also served as assistant director of the Center for Study on Federalism for four years.
