Welcome to the Website of the Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.

My job is to oversee all of the administrative responsibilities of the schools, colleges, and libraries of the University. We carry out the academic policies of the faculty and the president. My office also oversees the University’s accreditation, international initiatives, space planning, and research. In addition, the Provost’s Office seeks to be a resource and facilitator for the creative academic work of our faculty and students.

This Website contains a tremendous amount of information and a myriad of resources that will help you interact with my office. Should you need any guidance, please reach out to me or any of the staff in my office. We are here to help.

During the 2017-2018 academic year, I have the honor of serving as an Association of Chief Academic Officers Digital Fellow. (Read more about the Fellowship.) Get more information and resources on digital learning. I am blogging about the digital fellowship experience. Please visit the Provost’s blog below and feel free to comment or send me a note about your thoughts on the intersection of learning and technology.
