Welcome to the Office of the Provost
Baruch College provides an inclusive, transformational education in the arts and sciences, business, and public and international affairs to students from New York and around the world and creates new knowledge through scholarship and research. In support of this noble mission, the Office of the Provost strives to create a dynamic intellectual environment where faculty across our three schools can thrive as educators and thought leaders in their respective fields. Our work is animated by the six goals set forth in the College’s Strategic Plan: 2018-23, which together, speak to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and student engagement, as well as the advancement of diverse, inclusive environment.
At Baruch, the provost also serves as senior vice president for academic affairs and in these roles, guides the work of associate provosts for academic administration and faculty development, and teaching and learning, as well as the deans for Baruch’s three degree-granting schools—the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the Zicklin School of Business—and the associate dean for Continuing and Professional Studies. The office also manages assessment, accreditation, and institutional effectiveness for all academic and administrative units at the College.
In all of its work, the Office of the Provost remains true to the founding mission of Baruch’s ancestral institution, the Free Academy, which opened in 1847 to transform individual lives by providing a top quality “education for all.”
