Welcome to Heidelberg academics. As Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, I serve as the chief academic officer for the university. My primary role is to oversee the operations of all offices on campus relating to our academic mission, and as you browse through our majors and minors, you will find many areas of study that will allow you to find your academic passion.
As Provost, my goal is to enhance the efforts of the faculty through support of excellence in teaching, professional development and scholarship, and meaningful service to the University. As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, I work closely with the President and other senior officers, to cultivate an academic community in which faculty can provide an engaging classroom environment and develop exciting academic programs for our students that complement the many interesting co-curricular opportunities.
An institution of our size allows for our students at both the undergraduate and graduate level to really get to know our faculty who are dedicated to the education of our students. Our faculty chose a career at an institution like Heidelberg because of their love of teaching, the ability to share their passion for their discipline with students, and the chance to provide the personalized attention to our students. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to student success, always providing the time needed outside of class to meet with students and recognizing what our students need to reach their greatest potential both on campus and after graduation.
If you are interested in an education that focuses on the needs and interests of each individual student and prepares you for whatever career path you chose, then make Heidelberg University your place to prepare for a life of purpose with distinction.
