Our Charge

The Office of the Provost provides leadership, guidance, resources, and bridges between the academic and student affairs units on campus to create an integrated student experience.

The Office of the Provost oversees six Schools, one College, Foley Library, and the Gonzaga-in-Florence campus that comprise Academic Affairs, Faculty Affairs, Student Affairs, Enrollment Management, Global Engagement, and Accreditation and Assessment. Please see the organization chart here. Meet the Provost Office.

Together, the Provost, the Deans and Associate Deans, the Vice and Associate Provosts, as well as Chairs of departments and directors of centers or institutes make up the academic leaders of the university. All set goals grounded in Ignatian, Jesuit, Catholic, and humanistic education.
