Brigadier General Mark A. Bebensee became interim Provost in March 2018. Prior to his current position, he was the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs since 2009, and prior to assuming this administrative position, he was the Associate Dean of the School of Business Administration, a position he held for 8 years. While most of his forty-two years at The Citadel have dealt with some type of administrative duties, he has consistently taught both undergraduate as well as graduate students each semester and is considered an outstanding professor by his colleagues as well as his students. He began his career at The Citadel as an Assistant Professor of Economics in 1977,and quickly moved through the administrative ranks as Assistant to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies as well as Department Head, and then, Associate Dean of the School of Business Administration.
In the area of teaching, Mark’s student evaluations are consistently among the highest in the School of Business Administration from both undergraduate as well as MBA students. He has won every teaching award The Citadel has, and he is well into his second generation of students who are as generous with their praise of his teaching as their fathers were when they were here. Mark has a B.A. from Millsaps College and an M.A., Ph.D. from Duke University.
