Office of the Provost

The responsibility of the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs is to provide academic vision and leadership. With the deans, department chairs, program heads, faculty, and administrative offices, Provost Suzanne Austin and the Provost Office staff work with other areas of campus and the President’s Office to advance the quality and mission of the College, including implementing the Strategic Plan.

The Office of the Provost oversees academic programming including curriculum management; divisional budgets; and faculty and staff personnel matters including recruitment, promotion, and tenure. The Provost works closely with the deans of the academic schools, the Libraries, the Honors College, and the Graduate School. In addition, numerous other functions, including Registrar, the Office for Student Success, International Programs, Undergraduate Research, Institutional Research, Institutional Effectiveness, Strategic Planning, and Academic Assessment report under the Academic Affairs Division. Under our shared governance model, the Provost also works collaboratively with the Speaker of the Faculty and the Faculty Senate, the primary legislative body of the faculty. In summary, the Office of the Provost provides leadership for and supports the efforts of the faculty and staff who work to ensure that the mission of academic excellence is achieved.
