Appointment a homecoming for the new USF president

Rev. Paul J. Fitzgerald

SAN FRANCISCO — The University of San Francisco's Board of Trustees voted unanimously to elect the Rev. Paul J. Fitzgerald, SJ as USF's 28th president.

Father Fitzgerald has worked in higher education for more than 20 years, most recently serving as senior vice president for Academic Affairs at Fairfield University in Connecticut.

At Santa Clara University, Father Fitzgerald was associate dean and senior associate dean for the College of Arts and Sciences. He has also served on several university boards, including the Ecclesiastical Board of the School of Theology and Ministry at Boston College, the Board of Trustees of Loyola University Chicago, and the Board of Trustees of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

Through a number of teaching and leadership positions, he has gained a deep understanding of Jesuit education.

"When I received word I was selected as president, I was absolutely elated," Father Fitzgerald said. "USF has an impressive legacy. The chance to contribute to this environment of learning and service is a true honor."

For Father Fitzgerald, this is a homecoming. He grew up in Los Gatos after his family moved from Southern California when he was 5. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in history from Santa Clara University in 1980, and entered the Society of Jesus two years later. Father Fitzgerald was ordained to the priesthood at St. Ignatius Church on the USF campus in 1992.
