The Office of the Provost is responsible for coordinating and overseeing the full range of the university's academic activities. Our work focuses on increasing access to higher education, continually enhancing the scope and quality of academic and research programs, managing resources effectively, and coordinating academic shared governance activities.
A vibrant and exciting intellectual community has many benefits, both to those within it and to global society at large. Accordingly, George Mason University strives to recruit the finest students, faculty, researchers and staff. We are proud of the university's reputation for innovation and inclusiveness, and welcome many kinds of partners in exploring new opportunities in teaching and research.
