After spending the past four years rebuilding the Division of Advancement at the University of Central Arkansas, T. Kale Gober has been recruited to do the same for Grand Canyon University.

As vice president of advancement, a new position at GCU, Gober said the time is right to move across the country to take on this new position.

Gobe and his wife have two children, ages 2 and 5, who will move to Phoenix at the end of the school year, he said, giving him time to find a new home.

"It's a unique opportunity because where else can you go where you're building an advancement division," he told the Phoenix Business Journal. "To start from scratch and build something equally exciting is daunting. There is no playbook. You can't just call another university and say what have you been doing. They've all had advancement divisions since the 1950s."
