Administrative History

The office of Academic Vice President at Brigham Young University was established around 1966. The position is responsible for administering university faculty, undergraduate studies, and research and graduate studies.

The position of Academic Vice president was established around 1966, though these functions had been established earlier. When Earl C. Crockett was appointed vice president in charge of finance and business administration in 1957, he was also given responsibility for the academic program at the university (except religion). Aside from his service as acting university president in 1964, Crockett operated in this position until his retirement in 1968. The office of Academic Vice President is responsible for undergraduate and graduate studies and research at the university, and has previously also included responsibilities for international studies, academic support, and computing. Between 1981 and 1989 the position was known as Provost and Academic Vice President, but in 1989 the position was split to allow the appointment of an independent provost. Academic Vice Presidents have included Crockett (1966-1968), Robert K. Thomas (1968-1980), Jae R. Ballif (1980-1989), Stan L. Albrecht (1989-1992), Todd A. Britsch (1992-1996), Alan L. Wilkins (1996-2004), John S. Tanner (2004-2011), and Brent W. Webb (2011- ).
