Longtime Educator, Administrator Named to New Role with Jesuits West Province

February 20, 2019 — Jesuits West Province is pleased to announce that Mike Chambers has been appointed Associate PASE (Provincial Assistant for Secondary and Pre-Secondary Education) beginning August 1, 2019. The PASE office supports the work of the Jesuits West Provincial and serves the 18 secondary and pre-secondary schools of the Province as they seek to develop and deepen their Catholic and Jesuit identity.

For the last seven years, Chambers has served as the principal of Portland’s Saint Andrew Nativity School, Oregon’s only private, tuition-free middle school for low-income students. His long tenure with Saint Andrew’s started in 2003. In addition to his current role, Chambers has taught history and served as the school’s vice principal and athletic director. He received a bachelor’s in history and journalism from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, and a master’s in teaching and a Professional Administrator License from the University of Portland.

A proud alumnus of Bellarmine Preparatory School in Tacoma, Chambers currently serves on the Portland SEEL (Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life) advisory board and is a former volunteer with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. He will be based in Portland at the Jesuits West Province office.
