Dr. Sheryl A. Tucker serves as the Provost, which is the Chief Academic Officer for Southern Illinois University (SIU). Through servant leadership, the goal of the Provost's office is to facilitate the success of SIU's students, faculty, staff and alums. The Provost's team also includes two associate provosts: Dr. Juliane Wallace, interim associate provost for academic administration, and Dr. Julie K. Dunston, interim associate provost for academic programs.
The Provost reports to the Chancellor and collaborates in setting overall academic programs and priorities for the University and allocates funds to carry these priorities forward. The Provost provides leadership in recruitment of prospective national and international students, student retention, faculty hiring, promotion and tenure, outreach to the community, and overall student support, ensuring students' academic success.
We also serve our campus community by overseeing all forms of academic activities, including personnel, budgets, information technology, faculty training, assessment and program review, and student affairs. The individual colleges, schools and units that report to the Provost work collectively to ensure the University community's success.
