Welcome to the Office of the Provost

The Role of the Provost

The primary role of the Provost is to serve as Chief Academic Officer for the University, working closely with faculty and academic staff to ensure the overall academic quality of the university.  I serve as an advocate for both faculty and students as we strive for excellence across the disciplines in teaching, learning, advising, scholarship, and artistry.  Working closely with the President, administration, faculty, and staff, I strive to advance the mission of the University as we prepare students for professional success, democratic citizenship in a global environment, and the personal pursuit of a live of meaning and value. I am honored and privileged to serve in this role in an interim capacity for the 2021-2022 academic year, and am excited for the opportunity to work with an incredible team of committed faculty and staff as we strive to build both greater academic excellence across the university and a more inclusive community of scholars and artists.

Performance Learning

One of the most exciting things about Millikin is our dedication to Performance Learning, which emphasizes active student engagement in their learning. It is more than just a slogan; it is woven deeply into the fabric of the institution. Performance Learning gives students opportunities to engage as professionals in their fields, with real risk and real reward, while they are still engaged in their studies and supported by their committed faculty.  It enriches the student experience at Millikin, and helps to better prepare students for professional success.
