It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs website. At California State University, Bakersfield, Deans, Administrators, Faculty, and Staff are committed to providing our students with academic excellence. Our commitment is exemplified in our vision statement.
A question I am often asked is, “What is a Provost?” At its essence, the Provost is the chief academic officer of a University reporting to the President. The Provosts’ primary responsibilities include providing leadership, supervision, and oversight of academic programs, policies, curricular, instructional, and research affairs.
As you navigate our site, you will find helpful links to the departments, programs, and schools which comprise the Academic Affairs division. Thank you for your interest in the work of the Provost’s Office.
