Office of the Provost


Overview

The provost works to maintain and enhance the university's excellence in teaching, scholarship and outreach, and is responsible for strategic planning and budgeting, tenure and promotion, academic and research initiatives, and general academic supervision of the Ithaca campus.

The provost acts as the university's chief academic officer and chief operations officer, and serves as the president's first deputy officer. The provost oversees all academic programs and units of the university, other than those reporting to the provost for medical affairs.

In carrying out these responsibilities, the provost works directly with the deans of the Ithaca-campus colleges, schools, and faculties, with the vice provosts, and with other members of the provost's executive staff.
