The Provost Model

Principles supporting a Provost Model:

  1. University decisions align with our mission and strategic priorities;
  2. Goals are integrated across academic and administrative units;
  3. Clear and efficient decision making.

A fully implemented provost model supports these principles. It provides for the structure and processes to ensure the University’s academic mission and priorities drive decisions related to resource allocation and facilities.
