Welcome to the Office of the Provost at UMass Lowell. The Provost serves as the chief academic officer to provide leadership for all academic efforts at UMass Lowell.

The provost is assisted in this effort by the vice provost for academic affairs and the vice provost for graduate & professional studies as well as by the deans of the academic colleges, and academic administrators.

The provost works in close collaboration with the Faculty Senate on development of academic programs and with the deans on implementation and assessment of these programs. Similarly, the Provost works collaboratively with the Executive Board of the Faculty Union on implementation of faculty policies.

In addition to undertaking the day-to-day running of the academic life of the campus under the direction of the chancellor, the Provost Office provides oversight for implementation of all academic policies and is deeply engaged with the vice chancellors, deans, faculty and staff to bring coherence to our scholarly endeavors and to help all achieve their academic and professional goals and to create an environment in which the best teaching, learning and research can flourish.
