Message from the Provost

Lori VermeulenLori Vermeulen
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

Welcome to Stockton University!

There is no better time than now to be part of Stockton’s community.  With more than 40 academic programs of study, plus dozens of clubs, sports teams, and activities, there are great opportunities to get involved and contribute to Stockton University’s distinction.

The “Stockton Idea” video series introduces you to our distinctive mission and entrepreneurial spirit, emphasizing interdisciplinary study and community engagement.  Our educational structure provides a vibrant experience, teaching students to look at problems from different points of view, preparing them to thrive in today’s world. Students can create a personalized education that is tailored to their individual interests, academic goals, and career aspirations.

We are very proud of our institution, our faculty, our staff, and, most of all, our students. Stockton’s motto “Excellence in Teaching and Putting Students First” remains as true today as it did when Stockton first opened its doors in 1971.  This University is truly unique.

As Stockton’s chief academic officer, I am privileged to oversee the University’s Division of Academic Affairs, which is comprised of seven academic schools and more than 600 faculty and staff who are committed to providing excellence in all areas of teaching, scholarship, and service.

To help you more fully understand these possibilities, please take some time to explore the Academics section of the University’s web pages and Bulletin. You will learn about our many academic resources, including our programs of study, course descriptions, and policies and practices.

Stockton University has a bright future. The recent prestigious accreditation for the School of Business by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the plans to build University Science Center II, and expanding to a satellite campus in Atlantic City all demonstrate Stockton’s capacity for growth and providing a distinguished educational experience.  We invite you to explore the richness that Stockton provides and to make it an integral part of your future success.
