About the Office

The Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost positions NC State to achieve academic excellence and worldwide prominence in higher education and research.

The Provost’s Office

The Provost’s Office supports NC State’s success as an R1 land-grant university by promoting a campus culture of outstanding teaching, innovation, extension and engagement inside of and beyond campus walls. We align our efforts with the university’s strategic plan, and empower the university community to gain momentum on strategic goals through oversight of academics and creating a home for the nation’s brightest faculty.

Working within the strategic plan helps us expertly allocate resources and promote leadership of our nearly 2,500 faculty, nearly 7,000 staff and more than 37,500 students. We’re expanding opportunities for teaching, research and learning through the creation of an Office of University Interdisciplinary Programs and Office of Instructional Programs. We’re also well underway in implementing the first stages of Wolfpack 2030: Powering the Extraordinary.

Our leadership and support create a welcoming campus culture that values diversity, innovation and experiential education. We’ve created a strong academic environment that positions our faculty, staff and students for success, and we’re moving forward on our vision for NC State’s future.
