The Office of the Provost provides strategic direction and guidance for all academic affairs at the college - undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies - aligned with our institutional mission and priorities. The Provost works collaboratively with many members of the division of academic affairs in pursuing the institution's academic goals, including three Associate Provosts, five academic deans who lead the schools that comprise the college, dedicated faculty, and other key members of our academic affairs staff.
In carrying out the academic mission of the college, the Office of the Provost provides leadership regarding all academic programming and academic supports for students, academic resource allocation and budgeting, tenure and promotion of faculty, internal and external grant opportunities to support faculty research and development, and student research via the James J. Whalen Academic Symposium.
Office of the Provost staff work collaboratively with partners on and beyond campus to help all our students learn and grow to realize their potential as global citizens. Our goal is that students experience strong academic programs while on campus and graduate prepared to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives in which they contribute to their communities.
