North Carolina Central University (NCCU) has appointed Dr. Michelle Mayo as associate provost for Academic Programs and Undergraduate Research.

In her role, Mayo will lead current and emerging programs and initiatives in undergraduate education and research, as well as provide overall supervision and coordination for curriculum, instruction, academic program assessment and management of all academic-degree programs. She will also strengthen and enhance the undergraduate experience by involving students in meaningful scholarly, interdisciplinary research and creative activity across all disciplines, including the liberal arts and professional studies. Moreover, Mayo will oversee the operations and activities of NCCU’s Division of Extended Studies.

Prior to joining NCCU, Mayo served as the associate provost for Academic Affairs and the dean of Graduate and Professional Studies at Harris-Stowe State University. During her tenure, she successfully led the university through four major accreditations, directed campus-wide technology and classroom renovations, assisted in the university’s increase of degree and certification programs by 75 percent, and secured undergraduate research opportunities, internships and academic collaborations that led to the creation of dual-degree programs in the areas of engineering, occupational therapy and pharmacy.

Mayo is a board of trustees’ member at A.T. Still University, the founding institution of osteopathic healthcare. She also works with the Higher Education Council of the St. Louis Regional Chamber.

Mayo received a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and a Master of Arts degree in education from Truman State University. She also holds a doctorate in educational policy and leadership studies from Indiana University Bloomington. Mayo is also a graduate of the Millennium Leadership Initiative and the recipient of numerous awards, including the Salute to Excellence in Education by the St. Louis American.
