Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs

The term "provost" is typically not well-known, except to people who work at a university. The provost is the university's chief academic officer and reports directly to the president. 

At Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, the provost works closely with all academic deans, department chairs, faculty, and student services professionals to implement and review academic initiatives that promote an environment where all members, from incoming students to tenured professors, are valued and thriving. 

Major responsibilities of the Office of the Provost include:

  • Providing a challenging educational experience in a multicultural community for undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Supporting the academic colleges and the work they do.
  • Improving the university’s performance in building a diverse and successful faculty of scholars.
  • Supporting research and scholarly activity across the university.
  • Oversight and coordination of international activities.
  • Supporting collaborative educational efforts involving industry, the community, and educational partners.
