What is a Provost?

about

The title Provost has been in use for centuries in institutions of higher education and describes a high level administrative officer who oversees and has final responsibility for the university curriculum, faculty appointments, research, student affairs, and academically related areas. The Provost directly answers to the university's President and is usually the Vice-President for Academic Affairs of the university.

The Academic Affairs unit of a university typically consists of departments and programs led by Chairs or Directors. These departments and programs reside in colleges or schools and the Chairs and Directors report to the Deans of the colleges or schools. The Deans in turn report to the Provost.

Our Team

The Provost’s staff works to support the duties and responsibilities of the Provost and may direct centers for teaching and learning, support the development of undergraduate and graduate curricula, direct faculty credentialing efforts, hear faculty and student grievances, and develop physical and software infrastructures that support the efforts of faculty and students at the university.
