What is a provost? In short, the Clemson provost is the person responsible for all academic matters. Those duties may relate to teaching, student admissions, registration, financial aid, graduate studies, research and even computing services. The provost reports directly to the president and is in charge of recommending short- and long-range plans for academic development. Then, the provost creates policies to implement any approved plans.
Each of the University’s five colleges reports to the provost, as do units such as the Graduate School, Undergraduate Studies, International Affairs, Research Office, the Library, Computer and Information Technology, and the Office of Effectiveness and Assessment. In the absence of the president, the provost presides over the University’s affairs.
The provost is guided by Clemson’s 2020 Road Map,which is a 10-year strategic plan that calls for investments in faculty hires, student engagement, upgraded facilities and technology, and faculty and staff compensation.
