Liberty University’s Provost is responsible for overseeing the management and quality of all academic programs offered in both residential and online formats. To assist in fulfilling this large responsibility, the Provost has appointed a Vice Provost for Academic Administration and a Vice Provost for the Graduate School and Online Programs.

The Vice Provost for the Graduate School and Online programs leads a dedicated team of academic professionals who together oversee all graduate and all online academic programs offered through Liberty University. This team includes all Graduate and Liberty University Online Deans, Associate Deans, Online Chairs, and Instructional Mentors, as well as more than 1400 online faculty who participate in the day-to-day instruction of both our residential graduate and our online graduate and undergraduate student body. These are exciting days for Liberty’s graduate and online degree programs, which continue to grow in numbers and quality as they contribute to Liberty’s status as the largest Christian university in the world.

As the largest Christian university in the world, Liberty University occupies a special space in university graduate and online education. In our graduate and online programs, we seek to assure the ongoing development of a curriculum and an instructional environment where faith and scholarship are melded together. The result we desire most is producing a trained body of professionals who possess the knowledge, values, and skills to make significant contributions to their chosen professions and to impact their culture for the glory of God.
