Cedarville, Ohio—In a move to strengthen institutional effectiveness and position Cedarville University for future growth, Dr. John Gredy has been named the University’s first provost. He will begin his new responsibilities on July 1.

    Gredy assumes the role after three years as the vice president for enrollment management. His background includes 30 years of experience in college administration, providing leadership to both public and private universities in the areas of enrollment management, marketing, and university relations. He holds an Ed.D. in higher education and M.S. in counseling and guidance, both from Indiana University, and a B.S. in psychology from Albion College.
