Michael McGee currently serves as the assistant provost of graduate education and dean of the Graduate School and has been at Lenoir-Rhyne University for nearly 30 years.    

McGee was head athletic trainer from 1995-2011 and an assistant athletic trainer from 2011-2015. He received the Raymond Morris Bost Distinguished Professor Award in 2005. It is given annually to honor an LR faculty member for outstanding teaching and mentorship. He also received the LR Outstanding Community Service Award in 2013 and in 2015, the Roediger Distinguished Service Professorship, designated annually by the president in recognition of distinguished service to the university, profession and community. McGee is also a member of the LR Servus Universitas Society. He was inaugurated in 2016 as a notable way of honoring employees who have dedicated the better part of their lives to serve the mission of LR and make it a better place for those who come after them. To be a member of this society, a Lenoir-Rhyne employee must reach at least 25 years of continuous, full-time service. Of literally thousands of individuals who have been employed by the university, fewer than 150 have reached this milestone.

McGee has completed research addressing problem-based learning in athletic training education and the use of functional exercise and testing for rehabilitation. Prior to Lenoir-Rhyne, he served as a visiting lecturer in the Department of Physical Education, Exercise and Sports Sciences at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, teaching human anatomy.  He holds certification from the board of certification and is licensed in North Carolina as an athletic trainer.
