Welcome to Academic Affairs

Office of the Provost - Dr. Rex Gandy, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

Welcome to Austin Peay State University’s Office of Academic Affairs. This office, along with its many associated units, is focused on promoting excellent educational experiences at Austin Peay through the quality of our academic programs, the distinction of our faculty and the innovation of our academic support services. We are also dedicated to achieving the goals and objectives set forth in the University’s Leading Through Excellence strategic plan, which includes increasing enrollment and enhancing student success at Austin Peay.

As the University’s chief academic officer, I am committed to overseeing all academic areas at Austin Peay, including the College of Arts and Letters, the College of Behavioral Health Sciences, the College of Business, the Martha Dickerson Eriksson College of Education, the College of Science and Mathematics, and the College of Graduate Studies.

The Office of Academic Affairs works to provide support, professional development and research opportunities to the many faculty members in those colleges, and we believe in providing students with the resources they need to succeed once they leave campus. By doing so, we will continue to ensure that Austin Peay produces high-achieving graduates from diverse backgrounds who are prepared for the realities of a global society.

Thank you for your interest in Austin Peay. As we continue to expand our academic programs in the coming years, I invite you to visit our campus to see the numerous opportunities this institution offers.
