Jeffrey AperThe Role of the Provost
Provost - Dr. Jeffery Aper

日本一道本一二三区视频_一区二区三区高清视频_日本一本到道一区免费I’m often asked what a Provost does. A few years ago one of my neighbors who was a veteran of World War II asked me about my job and when I told him I was a Provost, he was forever after convinced that I was Provost Marshal, or the head of the campus police force. While this influenced him to treat me with significant deference, it reinforced my conviction that I needed to find more effective ways to explain my role within the institution.

日本一道本一二三区视频_一区二区三区高清视频_日本一本到道一区免费The primary role of the Provost is to serve as Chief Academic Officer for the University, which means working closely with the faculty to assure the best possible experience and outcomes for all of our students. That means facilitating the good work of faculty as teachers, advisors, scholars, researchers, artists, and citizens of the University and larger community. More broadly, I believe that the role of the Provost is to be the foremost advocate for the quality of all learning and development opportunities for our students, and that requires supporting and collaborating with faculty and staff colleagues who work to serve students in a wide variety of ways that enhance their experience at Millikin and preparation for a life of meaning and value.

日本一道本一二三区视频_一区二区三区高清视频_日本一本到道一区免费In this capacity I work closely with the President to advance the mission of the University and serve the long-term best interests of the institution. Millikin University is an extraordinary community of thinkers and doers, and I am privileged to serve in a role that allows me strive to foster the success of such a gathering of capable faculty and staff who are truly devoted to the success of our diverse, capable, and hard-working students.

Performance Learning

日本一道本一二三区视频_一区二区三区高清视频_日本一本到道一区免费One of the most exciting things about Millikin is our dedication to Performance Learning, which emphasizes active student engagement in their learning and personal growth. It is not just a slogan; it is woven deeply into the fabric of the institution. It gives students the opportunity to go well beyond the more traditional learning they might get at other institutions. Performance Learning amplifies students’ experiences so they become 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.
