Office of the Provost


I am delighted to welcome you to Western Kentucky University. There is no better time than now to become a Hilltopper!

We are a comprehensive student-centered applied-research university with a focus on student success. Our office promotes and supports the faculty and staff that deliver our academic programs using creative, engaging, and innovative methods that promote high level learning, excitement for the disciplines, and social responsibility. Our focus on applied-learning encourages faculty to engage students both inside and outside of the classroom in real world experiences that include field study, applied-research, artistic expression, study abroad, internships, competitions, capstone experiences, and community outreach. These experiences prepare our students for a rewarding life and success beyond our Hill!

We are proud of our relevant academic programs, our connection to our broader communities, and the WKU student experience. I encourage you to explore our university’s webpages to learn more about us and the many opportunities available to you. Your future is bright. Come climb with us!

Best regards,

Cheryl Stevens
