As provost, Peggy Agouris is the chief academic officer of William & Mary, and is responsible for all academic and research programs, academic budgets, institutional planning, space allocation and faculty development. She co-chairs the university's strategic planning and business innovation committees.
Agouris became William & Mary's sixth provost on July 1, 2019. Before joining William & Mary, she served at George Mason as dean of the College of Science, chair of the Department of Geography and Geoinformation Science and as a professor of remote sensing and spatial informatics.
The Office of the Provost is at the core of academic administration and planning at William & Mary. Provost Agouris oversees Arts & Sciences and our four schools — Education, Law, Mason School of Business and Marine Science/VIMS.
Provost Agouris works closely with President Rowe, the senior management team and the Board of Visitors to effectively plan and manage the university's strategic planning efforts, strengthen William & Mary as a leading liberal arts and sciences university in the 21st century and build a new financial model for William & Mary.
A priority of Provost Agouris is nurturing William & Mary’s 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.
