Welcome to the Office of the Provost. As Provost, it is my privilege to serve as chief academic officer for Texas Tech University.

The Office of the Provost is responsible for the overall academic mission of the university. This involves working with the president, deans, faculty, students and staff to promote academic excellence throughout the institution. Specific duties of the Provost include academic and budgetary planning, ensuring the quality of student learning by overseeing the curriculum and supporting educational initiatives, the development and enhancement of scholarship and research, the review of all faculty appointments, promotions, and tenure, and compliance with institutional policies and external regulations, including accreditations.

I invite you to explore our website to learn how this office supports and promotes Texas Tech's progress toward status as a great national research university.
