The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs facilitates academic excellence among University of Minnesota faculty by providing oversight of policies and processes related to faculty life and tenure and promotion; offering resources for faculty career development; and by recognizing and celebrating exceptional achievements in teaching, research, and public engagement.

As vice provost, I collaborate with faculty, department leaders, deans and chancellors to provide a clear understanding of our tenure and promotion documents, academic human resource policies and other procedural issues important to faculty.  I work closely with faculty governance to review decisions and vision for our academic community.  In addition, I serve as a liaison to the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) that provides an excellent academic leadership program.

One of the major goals of our office is to ensure that the University of Minnesota provides a nurturing campus climate and is a welcoming academic community of superb scholars that attract excellent faculty, staff, and students.  Please explore our website for more detailed information or visit us in Morrill Hall.
