Office of the Provost

At Jacksonville University, the provost serves as the chief academic officer, working with the president to oversee academic policies and activities university-wide.

Dr. Donnie Horner has served as the Provost at Jacksonville University since June 2016. As a direct report to President Tim Cost and the leader of the University in his absence, Horner has established the reputation as a dynamic, energetic, transparent, inclusive, transformational leader who overseas an unusually wide range of university and academic affairs. He is responsible for four colleges, two institutes, the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, and the usual, diverse range of academic and research support systems. Instrumental in crafting the one-of-a-kind "OCEARCH at Jacksonville University" agreement which elevates the University to a leader in Marine Science and shark research, he also established "JU Downtown," a campus to serve the burgeoning graduate student populations in the health sciences and business programs.
