Office of the Provost


Welcome to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs website. Higher education is a dynamic, complex, and ever-changing field. We are in a time that calls on us to be alert and responsive in facing the challenges ahead. We must work together to fulfill the vision of Pittsburg State which is to provide transformative experiences for our students and our community. This is the focus of our work together.

On this site, you will find links to information about our work in strategic planning, support for the vital work of faculty and staff, and our many academic initiatives. These initiatives are designed to assure that Pittsburg State remains a leader in creating opportunities which set in motion successful futures for our students, university, and our world.

If there is any way in which our office can assist you, please contact us.
