Organizational History:

The Provost’s Office did not exist at Central Michigan University (CMU) until President Boyd appointed Charles Ping to the position in 1969. Before that the deans of the academic departments reported directly to the president. Currently (in 2009), the Provost’s Office is in charge of the Academic Division at CMU. Seven academic departments and ten academic units report to the Provost. The Provost’s Office is in charge of academic initiatives such as the automated degree audit, general education program, implementation of prerequisites, international education, 2010, and Beyond 2010 strategic initiatives. Faculty awards, various information resources, and reports of strategic plans and initiatives also emanate from the Provost’s Office. Julia E. Wallace is the first permanent female Provost at CMU (2007-present). (This information is from CMU yearbooks and the CMU Provost’s Office webpage, viewed in March 2009.)
