Provost's Office

On behalf of my colleagues in the university’s eight academic areas (Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Health Sciences; Honors College; School of Pharmacy, First Year Experience, and Nontraditional Programs), thank you for visiting the Provost’s website. Here you will find valuable information about the work of the Offices of Academic Affairs and Contract Administration, as well as Graduate and Professional Studies and Sponsored Programs.

The mission of our division continues to uphold the provision of quality academic programs that further student learning. We hold CSU students to high expectations that result in gainful employment in fields related to their programs of study and in their pursuit of related higher-level graduate work.

With excellent faculty and support staff, as well as committed academic deans and departmental chairpersons, I’m confident you’ll find the guidance, assistance, and call to collaborative excellence that marks my vision as Provost. Please know that your concerns matter to us all, beginning with me. Your success as a student, CSU colleague, and member of the community is also our success.

Together we make true the phrase, we are "CSU in motion" and the idea that together at CSU we all become greater.
