A Few Words from Our Provost
Dr. Michael Horvath, our new provost and vice president for academic affairs, took the reins in July.
Ever since then, “the days have been going by in a blur. There is so much to learn about our campus,” he said in an email – he’s so busy we at the Campus Chronicle didn’t want to bug him too much.
He’s been in a lot of meetings. Listened a lot. Talked some.
“A picture is beginning to emerge,” he said. “We have so much potential here to positively change lives that I am humbled by the opportunities.”
Dr. Horvath came to UWG from Indiana University South Bend, where he was professor and dean of the School of Education. His doctorate in learning-disability and educational administration is from the University of Arizona. He holds a master’s degree from Indiana University South Bend and a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University.
His busy schedule has been tempered by the people around him, who have been “gracious and helpful,” he said.
“I feel welcome and have very positive feelings about UWG. My plan is to meet people, continue to learn how I can help the campus move forward, and mostly listen in meetings until I have a better sense of how I may make myself useful.”
