The Provost oversees the Academic and Student Affairs Division.  With each of its disciplinary programs built upon the foundations of a liberal education tradition, the Academic and Student Affairs Division  is widely recognized for its ability to develop necessary talent and leadership for the next generation and prepare all students to contribute productively to their professions and societies. The Division demonstrates its success in developing and supporting inclusivity and diversity, productivity, efficiency, and sustainability. 

Our office is committed to strategic planning, high impact learning experiences, innovative scholarship, and purposeful academic service to the community.  

Our work encompasses  faculty and staff personnel concerns, budgeting, resource development, and faculty governance.  Our role is to support teaching, scholarship, and public service through increasingly high quality, relevant curricula in a challenging, intellectual environment at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.  Our goal is to encourage and sustain an environment of creativity, rigor, support, and openness that aids faculty, students, and the wider community in our search for knowledge.

Thank you for your interest in the work of the Provost’s office. Please contact us if we can assist you.
