Fostering Academic Excellence

APU is committed to fostering an atmosphere wherein academics is not simply taught, but lived. Professors, experts in their respective fields and passionate about the subjects they teach, challenge and stretch their students to reach their goals. Students are impelled to think critically and analyze thoroughly what they learn in the classroom.

The provost provides strategic academic vision for the university and oversees all academic matters, from hiring new faculty to working with faculty to develop new programs to setting academic policy.
