Office of the Provost
As Maine’s research university and the flagship campus of the University of Maine System, we have a world-class faculty made up of scholar-teachers dedicated to creating new knowledge, challenging students, and serving the state by working with individuals, businesses, cultural centers and communities. The Provost’s Office supports all of these activities.
The Provost oversees the six colleges and schools at the University of Maine, as well as its regional campus in Machias, the Division of Lifelong Learning, and Cooperative Extension. The Provost’s office also leads academic affairs, faculty development, student success initiatives, strategic priorities, program assessment and accreditation, institutional research and assessment, university libraries, and academic personnel management (including appointments and reappointments of faculty and staff, tenure and promotion, and annual evaluations).
