The Deputy Provost oversees the Office of Academic Assessment and the Office of Academic Program Review, and directs the Postdoctoral and Transition Program for Academic Diversity. Under the leadership of the Deputy Provost, the Office of the Provost at NYU works closely with the deans of the 14 schools with graduate programs as well as the Office of Student Life to ensure a first-class education and academic experience for our 20,000 graduate students. Prospective, new, and returning students can visit the NYU Graduate Student website to learn about NYU's extraordinary range of academic programs and to find out how to enrich their lives while in one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

The Vice Provost for Educational Technologies is responsible for all academic aspects of technology-based teaching and learning, University-wide. He oversees the development of the NYU’s instructional technology strategy, working directly with deans and faculty and collaborating with NYU IT and other NYU offices.
