This is an exciting time for the University of Oregon. We are embarking on a new era with a new Board of Trustees, a new president, and ambitious goals for fundraising and increasing state support. As we step into the future, we must focus on our vision of pursuing academic excellence in all that we do. This vision will be realized by expanding our faculty and enhancing our capacity for innovation and research.
The provost helps ensure the quality of our faculty through the hiring and review of executive academic positions and by providing leadership in matters related to faculty appointments and promotions, working conditions, and tenure.
