Academic Policies

As the Chief Academic Officer, the Provost is responsible for approving policies and procedures that appear in the Faculty Handbook and that govern all academic activities and performance within the University. Major changes may also require approval by the President and the Board of Trustees. The Provost is responsible for posting the official edition on the web and oversees a comprehensive review of the Faculty Handbook every five years.
