Welcome to the Office of Provost. As Interim Provost it is my privilege to serve as chief academic officer for Indiana Wesleyan University. I am honored to facilitate leadership of the faculty, the curriculum and the academic support services. Our assistant provosts, deans, department chairs, directors, faculty, staff and students will work collaboratively to create and sustain a focus on learning excellence and innovation in undergraduate and graduate education. The Office of the Provost establishes, articulates, and manages the academic vision of the university, and provides oversight to the definition and coordination of all academic functions such as student learning outcomes, curriculum, instruction, scholarship, research, academic policy, assessment, accreditation, and academic regulatory compliance.
Our University Academic Leadership Council (UALC) is devoted to fostering a culture that enhances recruitment and retention of outstanding Christ-centered faculty and students. Our academic leadership team will continue to (1) maintain life balance, (2) define priorities, (3) create indicators, (4) lead the team, and (5) manage systems as we focus on the "seven operational priorities" established with Dr. David Wright our founding Provost. It will be a privilege for the UALC academic leadership team to work with President Wright, the Executive Council and the President's Cabinet in passionate pursuit of our university strategic objectives and operational aims.
