The provost and senior vice president for academic affairs reports to the president and serves as the chief academic officer of the university. The provost is responsible for developing and overseeing academic planning for the university, for overseeing the colleges and the schools on the Monroe Park Campus, which include the University College, the Honors College, the College of Humanities and Sciences, the schools of the Arts, Business, Education, Engineering and Social Work, and the Graduate School.

As provost, I have responsibility for academic financial administration; academic affairs and curriculum and degree development; information technology; community programs; the offices of EEO/AA compliance and diversity advocacy; the Center for Institutional Effectiveness; the Center for Teaching Excellence; international education; the libraries; and student affairs and enrollment services. In each of these responsibilities I am very ably assisted by a vice provost or by an assistant or associate vice provost. Finally, the director of athletics reports to me for academic purposes.

As the chief academic officer of this outstanding university, it is my responsibility to ensure that our students enjoy a high quality educational experience during their time at VCU, that the faculty and staff have the resources they need to produce world-class scholarship and creative expression, and that the university maintains its strong commitment to the community of which it is a part. It is a responsibility that I bear with great pride and considerable humility.
