University Provost

Welcome to the Office of the University Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Dr. Michael J. Avaltroni University Provost and Senior Vice President Academic Affairs

I am honored to serve as the University Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at Fairleigh Dickinson University.  As a member of the FDU alumni community, I have experienced firsthand the transformational impact that an FDU education can provide.  I am delighted to lead an academic affairs unit that is focused on providing personal, global and transformational experiences to a new generation of university students. 

As the chief academic officer, I work closely with our College and School deans and directors and the University faculty to create and manage academic programs, uphold and implement academic policies and create, develop and nurture academic partnerships within and outside the institution.  My goal is to see the academic areas of our university flourish and thrive as we continue to innovate and develop new programs and experiences that prepare our students for their bright and promising futures.

This role gives me a valuable opportunity to meet with our faculty, staff, students and partners to learn about their experiences and talk about ways that our institution can continue to support their academic journeys.  I hope to see you around one of our campuses and to learn more about the ways that FDU continues to transform lives and provide students opportunities for growth and upward mobility in their lives.  Please reach out anytime to connect and learn more about ways to partner, collaborate and communicate!

Sincerely,

Michael J. Avaltroni, Ph.D. (FDU alumnus, BS’99)
