Welcome from Provost Robert Rhodes, Ph.D.

Welcome to the Office of the Provost at Abilene Christian University. As the university’s chief academic officer, I have responsibility for overseeing all of ACU’s academic programs.

Combining cutting edge instruction and facilities with more than a century of tradition and history, ACU offers nationally recognized academic programs within a supportive, Christ-centered community.  We believe students learn best when they are able to work side-by-side with our talented faculty and staff as they engage in learning through research, internships, study abroad experiences, service learning opportunities, team projects and learning communities. Our students are here for a specific purpose, and we promise to provide them with a vibrant and innovative educational experience that equips them to make a real difference in the world.
