What is a Provost?
This is the title used at some institutions for the chief academic officer, the highest-ranking academic administrator.
In a university, each college or school is typically led by a dean, who is the highest-ranking academic officer within the college or school — and the deans then report to the provost.
Provosts typically also oversee a university’s faculty.
