Dr. Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval has accepted an invitation to be our next provost and vice president for Academic Affairs.

Dr. Jiménez-Sandoval has served as dean of the College of Arts and Humanities since January 2016. He is a dynamic scholar and administrator with an unwavering passion for our University's mission to boldly educate and empower students for success. I am excited to work with him to guide Fresno State to even greater heights of academic distinction, which will help to elevate the entire Central Valley.

Dr. Jiménez-Sandoval joined the Fresno State faculty in 2000. During his 19 years of service at the University, he has served as professor of Spanish and Portuguese, coordinator of the Spanish master of arts, chair of the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures, interim associate dean of the College of Arts and Humanities, and dean of the College of Arts and Humanities.

A multilingual scholar, he recently helped launch the new Portuguese Beyond Borders Institute, in collaboration with fellow deans of other Fresno State colleges. As a scholar, Dr. Jiménez-Sandoval studies poetic discourses, critical theory, Spanish American literature and Lusophone cultural productions. Among his academic honors are two nominations for the Carnegie U.S. Professor of the Year Award.

Under Dr. Jiménez-Sandoval's leadership as dean, the College of Arts and Humanities moved to a new level of excellence by introducing innovative fields, enhancing the quality of programs, increasing the number of tenure-track professors, increasing student enrollment, increasing timely graduation rates, and leading highly successful fundraising initiatives.
