Letter from the Provost

The University of Chicago is defined by a deep commitment to open and rigorous inquiry, free expression, and a singular pursuit of excellence. This excellence is manifested in our desire to push the frontiers of knowledge, our faculty’s ability to create field-defining research, and our commitment to providing a transformative education. This pursuit of academic excellence is found across every mode of inquiry – from the arts to medicine, from understanding the universe to shaping policy and economics, from philosophy to addressing challenges of urban life. This is reflected across all our academic programs and is enhanced through a foundational commitment to building a community of people with diverse perspectives, experiences, and viewpoints.

As Provost, it is my role to uphold these enduring values that define our University, and to ensure that they continue to guide our work to support the scholarship of the faculty and advance the University’s academic eminence and educational mission.

It is a privilege to support this University as Provost, and to work with faculty, staff, students, Deans, and University leaders to continue building our intellectual community.
