Gregory Chan shaping St. Thomas' diverse curriculum to create academic destination for Miami and the world
As the first-ever provost of Miami Gardens-based St. Thomas University, Gregory Chan is responsible for academic development and excellence at the urban, student-centered Catholic school.
Dr. Chan works one-on-one with faculty, deans and staff to take the 48-year-old university, founded as Biscayne College, to the next level through varied academic programs.
The Chinese-born educator joined the institution in 2001 as vice president for academic affairs and became provost in 2005.
"Step by step, this university is moving toward excellence," he said.
On the horizon, Dr. Chan said, are new programs in science and business and the strengthening of others in accounting and finance.
Dr. Chan discussed academics, accomplishments and plans for St. Thomas University with Miami Today staff writer Yudislaidy Fernandez at its campus in Miami Gardens.
