Provost, Class of 1955 Memorial Professor of History


The Provost is responsible for strategic planning and for allocating the resources of the college to advance our educational priorities. In practice, this means evaluating budget requests, taking part in discussions of current and proposed building projects, and generally making sure the college is making wise resource decisions in support of our mission.

The Provost oversees eight critical functional areas of the college: Admission, Financial Aid, Institutional Research (IR), the Libraries, Office of Information Technology (OIT), the Science Center, Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA), and the Zilkha Center for Environmental Initiatives.
