Hellige named provost at Loyola Marymount

LOS ANGELES - Joseph Hellige has been named executive vice president and provost of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

For the past two years, he served as senior vice president for academic affairs and chief academic officer. In 2007, he came to the university as vice president for research and dean of graduate studies.

Hellige successfully chaired the university's strategic planning committee, which established goals for the university's academic, educational and program growth. He also helped the university develop its new core curriculum and revise faculty tenure procedures.

David Burcham, president of Loyola Marymount, praised Hellige for strengthening existing university programs while preserving the university's Jesuit and Marymount traditions.

Hellige said he looks forward to working with colleagues to "continue to provide a transformative educational experience that allows our students to build lives committed to meaning and purpose."
