Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs


Welcome to the website for the Office of the Provost. Here you will find information on academic policies, special academic programs, student affairs, faculty resources that support innovation, and faculty development opportunities.

The title of ‘provost’ has a variety of historical and linguistic roots, but in essence, the provost is the chief operating officer, reporting to and acting as an extension of the president.  In this role, I work with the deans of the schools, continuing education, academic programs, faculty development, and student affairs. I also work with the vice presidents to ensure that the needs of our faculty and students are met with the resources we have available in our College. Finally, I coordinate with provosts from other units of CUNY to ensure that the university meets its goals and is faithful to its mission.

Baruch is a truly unique College within CUNY, with a tradition for academic excellence in all of our disciplines, and the unique identity of the largest accredited business degree programs in the United States. Ours is a current manifestation of a CUNY legacy of providing degree programs that are simultaneously reflective and instrumental, enabling young New Yorkers to begin satisfying careers that contribute to their personal development, to their families, and to build healthy and resilient communities.

Mission of the Office

The Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at Baruch College works in concert with the Faculty, Department Chairs, the Deans of the Zicklin School of Business, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Public Affairs, as well as the Division of Student Affairs to achieve excellence in all aspects of the academic life of the College, including research, student learning and engagement, and building an academic community that is a source of inspiration and pride. Additionally, the Office of the Provost is deeply involved in faculty recruitment, retention, and promotion; in the development and assessment of academic programs; and in assisting the faculty in compliance within the regulatory environment of government and our labor contracts.

Essential to our mission is the development of our students as thoughtful learners, ethical and engaged citizens, and confident adults, who choose to build healthy and sustainable communities through their families and organizations.
