The Academic Affairs Office, led by Provost Phil Bridgmon, provides academic programs and services to students and facilitates the academic and professional life of the faculty. At Central Missouri, we are committed to promoting student learning in an atmosphere of open discourse and inquiry. We encourage our faculty and students to engage in active learning that is complemented by scholarship.
