About

Office of the Associate Provost

Our office gathers information from all areas of the University to compile the data in the Strategic Plan Progress Metrics 2012-2017 (PDF). This document is used to track the progress of the goals listed in the Strategic Plan 2012-2017:  Education Redefined 2.0: Advancing Indiana.

We administer the orientation for new faculty each fall and maintain the Professional Development Opportunities Brochure (PDF) . This document contains information on supporting funds for various areas; learning opportunities; classroom, computer, and technology support; grants; leaves and administrative opportunities and exchanges.

It is our responsibility to keep records on Student Ethics violations and set up the academic integrity hearings.

The Associate Provost is appointed as the Provost designee for the University Promotion and Tenure Committee, and as such, attends committee meetings and acts in an advisory position.

We are the central location for colleges and departments to submit their promotion and tenure documents. We distribute the documents for the University P & T Committee to review and approve. Once a document has been approved, we file an electronic copy of the document in an ilocker account. The ilocker provides a quick and convenient location to retrieve past and current documents.

It is also the pleasure of this office to appoint the committee for the Outstanding Faculty Awards, and to supervise their requirements. It is always nice to be able to recognize our outstanding faculty.
