Millersville University's Vision Statement proclaims, "The Millersville University experience will empower students to make a significant difference in the communities where they will live and work. Millersville will be a premier comprehensive public university." To achieve this vision the Division of Academic Affairs, under the leadership of the Provost, is committed to fulfilling its mission, which states:
Academic Affairs provides undergraduate and graduate programs of distinction, grounded in the liberal arts tradition, that prepare students to be lifelong learners, civically-engaged citizens, and productive professionals in a global and diverse society. Through a culture of openness, continuous improvement and reflective assessment, Academic Affairs constantly enhances opportunities for students to grow intellectually, think critically, and develop leadership skills. Faculty, staff, students, and community members collaborate on professional, scholarly and creative works that contribute to the health of our institution, our community and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
As the Chief Academic Officer, the Provost is responsible to the President for providing overall leadership and general administrative responsibility for the University's planning process, academic programs and related support services, including faculty development, promotion and tenure processes, sabbatical leaves, research, curricular planning and assessment, academic budgeting and enrollment management. The Deans of the three Schools (Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Science and Mathematics), the Dean of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Director of the Honors College report to the Provost. In addition, the Associate Provost for Academic Administration, the Associate Provost for Enrollment Management, the Assistant Vice President for Assessment and Planning, and the Executive Director for Civic and Community Engagement and Research Project (CCERP) also report to the Provost. The Provost acts on behalf of the President during her absence and when requested to do so.
Working with the Deans' Council, Faculty Senate, faculty committees, Academic Affairs staff and senior officers of the University, the Provost develops the institution's academic priorities, which are included in the University's Strategic Directions, and oversees their implementation. The Provost's Office seeks to foster collaboration across the University in assuring our students educational opportunities second to none.
