Joseph Riquelme

Welcome to the Office of the Vice Provost and Chief Online Officer.   

As Vice Provost and Chief Online Officer of AU, I am responsible for providing leadership, administrative oversight, and coordination of all aspects of online and digital learning at AU – an integral part of the university’s overarching theme for our 2019-2023 strategic plan.  

In January 2019, AU released its new strategic plan, Changemakers for a Changing World. A central component of that plan is the development and implementation of a new digital education strategy. I will work in partnership with university leadership and staff to chart a path that enhances the digital learning experience and extends access to the quality education that American University is known for.
