Office of the Provost

The Office of the Provost is a multi-faceted unit with broad and diverse responsibilities ranging from the development of policy and academic program review, to data collection, implementation of technology and more.

Importantly, at its foundation, is a clearly defined focus on enhancing the academic profile and reputation of the State University.

Our Mission

The mission of the Office of the Provost is to raise the State University’s academic profile by providing the leadership essential to the attainment of increasingly higher levels of academic distinction and student success.

The Office seeks, through close collaboration with constituent campuses, to add value to each institution’s academic enterprise by:

  1. promoting scholarship, research and creative activity;
  2. supporting the highest quality teaching;
  3. ensuring student access to educational opportunities consistent with campus and sector missions and aspirations.

The Office will accomplish this mission by aligning SUNY institutions with the national higher educational agenda and by fostering a culture of high academic standards, and equitable access throughout the State University of New York.
