Office of the Provost

The provost is the chief academic officer for the University. He provides leadership, ensures academic accountability, encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, facilitates the work of faculty, staff and students and serves as a public intellectual promoting the culture, spirit and value of the academy. The provost works closely with the president in developing University priorities and in administering program budgets and faculty personnel policies. As a member of the Regents' Council of Chief Academic Officers, he participates in a collegial fashion with other academic leaders in system-wide shared governance and coordination.
