Message from the Executive Vice Chancellor

Our mission in academic affairs is clear – to create vibrant learning opportunities for Southern Indiana and the Louisville Metropolitan area.

We support students looking to achieve their dreams of obtaining a college education so that they can fulfill their career goals and passions. We strive to give our students a helping hand and support their educational development.

We help faculty realize their goals by providing for their professional development in the areas of teaching and support their research and creative endeavors. As faculty, we seek out truth and meaning in our creative and research processes, adding significant value to scientific, artistic, and other knowledge pathways.

We work with staff to make sure they have opportunities to progress and to provide the university and its constituents with the guidance it needs to grow and thrive.

We are here for our community and want to work with you to enhance our shared economic and health outcomes by providing more degree and certificate earners, and to share with you the knowledge we possess to add meaning and information to our historic and modern world.

In academic affairs, we believe in the power of education to transform lives and communities.

Dr. Kelly A. Ryan
Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
