Dr. Kenneth Hawley Named Associate Provost

Dr. Kenneth Hawley has been appointed Associate Provost for Academic Affairs at Lubbock Christian University.

Dr. Hawley joined the LCU faculty in 2004 and is currently serving as a tenured professor of English, Director of the Brian Donaghey Center for Boethian Studies, and the LCU Faculty Senate President. Dr. Hawley is an internationally recognized scholar in the field of medieval literature and a world authority on the works of the 6th-century philosopher and politician Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius. 

Dr. Hawley’s institutional service and leadership is extensive. He has served as the Director of Graduate Studies, Director of the Rhodes Family Institute for Undergraduate Research, Director of the EquipLCU professional development program, and has served multiple terms as Faculty Senate President. His collaborative nature, analytical skills, and exceptional command of language have often been tapped to help craft everything from university policy statements to quality enhancement plans, including the new LCU Platinum Plan: A Strategic Vision for LCU’s 70th Anniversary. 

“I am confident that Dr. Hawley is the right person to help lead our efforts in clarifying institutional processes, driving innovation, strengthening communication, and enhancing efficiencies in our academic enterprise,” shared LCU’s Provost and Chief Academic Officer Dr. Kent Gallaher.

“I look forward to collaborating with Provost Gallaher, the academic deans, and our faculty as we develop, improve, and sustain high-quality academic programs and initiatives at both the graduate and undergraduate levels,” Dr. Hawley explained. “In a Christ-centered community grounded in respect, trust, faith, and hope, we will all work together to fulfill the goals of our strategic plan and live out the vision of Lubbock Christian University.”

He continued, “The productive partnerships we build on our campus and in the surrounding community can not only help strengthen and promote our core academic areas and our flagship programs, but also help innovate and develop those that the next generation of students will consider fundamental to our mission and to their LCU experience.”
