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.

Initial Report from the Registration Working Group
I hope that you are getting excited with the arrival of new undergraduate students and the return of our continuing students.
As you may be aware, last spring, I formed a Registration Working Group to address the immediate challenges that we face with regards to class registration and to provide a set of recommendations on how to resolve them.
The Registrar’s Office, ITS, faculty and students were represented in this group, which was chaired by Barbara Rowe, Assistant Registrar. After several meetings and a lot of hard work, including surveys, the group has presented an initial report to my office, which is available online. I encourage you to review this report for further discussion. I shall meet with the Working Group in the coming weeks to map out our next steps.
Have a terrific new academic year.
