Office of the Provost

The Office of the Provost is at the core of academic administration and planning at William & Mary. The Provost is the chief academic officer for the university and oversees Arts & Sciences and our four schools — Education, Law, Mason School of Business and Marine Science/VIMS.

The Provost works closely with the President, senior management team and Board of Visitors to effectively plan and manage the university's strategic planning efforts, strengthen William & Mary as a leading liberal arts university in the 21st century and build a new financial model for William & Mary.

A priority of the Provost's responsibilities is on nurturing our world-class faculty and working with them to foster an environment that stimulates their teaching and research efforts, with a focus on student achievement in the classroom and research lab.

A team of exemplary vice provosts, deans and highly specialized administrators is part of the Provost's Office, and each brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and commitment to excellence that have been part of William & Mary's reputation for over 300 years.
