Message from the provost

Welcome. The provost at Georgetown is the chief academic officer of the main campus. The provost and his staff are responsible for the quality of the educational and research programs of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the McDonough School of Business, Georgetown College, the Walsh School of Foreign Service, the McCourt School of Public Policy, and the School for Continuing Studies. The office oversees admissions, financial aid, the registrar, research administration, and offices of student affairs.

An effective provost office serves the faculty and students of a university. The provost’s office at Georgetown strives to be transparent in its activities and to seek early and frequent input from faculty, students, and staff. The provost’s office has the obligation to build an environment in which faculty can perform their best scholarship and research and engage students through teaching and mentoring, as well as one in which students become prepared for a world in which ongoing learning will be a requisite for leadership.

I hope this site provides the information you seek. Please contact us is we can provide any additional information.
