Office of the Provost

Welcome to the Provost's Office website. In my role as the chief academic officer of the university, one of my primary goals of our office is to create an atmosphere that will ensure the success of students, faculty and staff by aligning campus resources with our strategic priorities to produce outstanding academic programs and facilities. Working closely with President Ruscio, the vice presidents and deans, we collectively strive to accomplish the core mission of providing an excellent liberal arts and sciences education at the undergraduate level and an outstanding legal education at the law school. As you explore our web site, please feel free to send a message to our office (provost@wlu.edu) if you need additional information. I hope you enjoy your visit.
