  The Role of the Provost  

As Provost of Millikin University, I serve as the Chief Academic Officer and am responsible for the academic quality and successful achievement of the University's diverse academic goals.  As Provost, I advocate for faculty and staff and serve as the liaison for the Academic Management Team with the President.  In my role, I have the responsibility to effectively advance and facilitate integration of the academic priorities with all other areas of the University.  It is my privilege to coordinate and direct the Academic Council in order to advance the academic mission and goals of the University. 


  Performance Learning  

I think the biggest most exciting thing to me coming on as Provost and Chief Academic Officer was Millikin's dedication to Performance Learning, which emphasizes active student engagement in their learning and personal growth.  It is not just a slogan.  It is really built deeply into the fabric of the institution.  It gives students the opportunity to go from the more traditional learning they might get at other institutions to ramp that up so they become so much better prepared for life beyond Millikin through application and deepening of the knowledge and skills that they would otherwise get through more traditional approaches of instruction.
