Welcome to the Southeast Missouri State University Office of the Provost website. As Provost, I serve as the University's Chief Academic Officer. My responsibilities include providing leadership, support, energy and innovation for all of our academic programs, faculty and our students. As one of the newest members of the Southeast community, I am thrilled to be here and to be working alongside the outstanding and dedicated faculty, staff and students who make Southeast such a special place.

Our focus is to ensure that our students are successful in life and work and that we do everything that we can to provide them the opportunities to experience that holistic success. Please take advantage of the resources on this website and learn more about the high-quality academic programs that we have to offer at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

If you have any questions or suggestions or just would like to contact me, please feel free to do so, at I look forward to seeing you on campus!

Thank you,
Dr. Mike Godard
