As NYU's chief academic officer, the Provost is responsible for setting the University's academic strategy and priorities. The Provost supervises deans and directors of schools and institutes and all academic support units, and with their assistance cultivates areas of excellence and enhances collaboration within and between schools. She also allocates financial resources according to academic priorities, in cooperation with university financial officers.

The Research Enterprise

NYU just had its best year ever for research, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

Six priorities have emerged as exciting opportunities for growth: artificial intelligence, arts and humanities, cybersecurity, quantum phenomena, STEM learning, and strategies to reduce inequality.

Areas of Focus

Collaborative Leadership 

The Provost consults with Vice Provosts, senior executives, active scholars, and experienced administrators to ensure that academic priorities are central to every decision made at NYU. Each Vice Provost oversees a portfolio of executive offices and serves as a liaison to designated schools and institutes.
