CFJ searches for new director

By David Maxwell

The Center for Faith and Justice (CFJ) is in the process of

selecting an interim director to replace the current director, David Johnson, as he transitions to interim Associate Provost at Student Life and Leadership (SLL). Johnson was selected for the interim position at SLL as part of

the realignment process undertaken by Provost and Chief Academic Officer Dr. Scott Chadwick. The replacement of Johnson was not a specific part of the realignment but was necessary in the wake of Johnson's transition. Johnson said that the CFJ is looking within the department at current staff members to fill the position of interim director, a decision that should be made sometime this week. "The CFJ is very fortunate to have a very talented staff. We really

can't lose in selecting an interim director," Johnson said. "Right now, we are looking for what would make the most sense structurally and at who can play the role with as little disruption as possible." Johnson explained how this is

a time of transition for the CFJ and SLL but he is sure that

the hiring process will continue to go forward smoothly

and in a way that will allow no interruptions of current

or planned CFJ programs. According to Johnson, the

CFJ is most concerned with continuing its mission and

maintaining its established relationship with students. "What has been important in the past for CFJ is that we have a process in which students have a role in contributing to our development. Their voices gave shape to who we are," Johnson said. "Our staff is focused on what the students' concerns are and put them first in our decisions. We will make sure [the interim director] will step up and continue to do that because CFJ is all about that dynamic relationship with students. CFJ is a home for all aimed at celebrating our Catholic, Jesuit heritage and promoting the link between faith and justice."
