"S. David Wu"

S. David Wu,
Provost and
Executive Vice President

The Provost and Executive Vice President is the university’s chief academic officer, charged by the Board of Visitors and the President with overseeing all aspects of education, research, and public engagement of the university. The Provost works closely with the President, the other vice presidents and vice provosts responsible for various functional areas of the university, the deans of academic colleges, schools, and other units, academic staff, the Faculty Senate, and various committees in setting academic priorities and allocating resources to achieve core missions of the institution.

Guided by the 10-year university strategic plan, our specific focus will be on promoting academic excellence, starting with identifying an overarching intellectual core that will differentiate Mason as a world-class institution of higher learning. We will take a leadership role in increasing student access to higher education, while striving for the highest quality and impact for our academic and research programs. We will continue our tradition of aggressive growth and innovation while managing our resources effectively and sustainably. We will pursue cohesive strategic goals for the institution while cultivating an inclusive and collaborative shared governance structure. We will create a vibrant, engaging and dynamic intellectual community in the context of an emerging global society.

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 committed partners in exploring new opportunities in research, teaching, and community engagement.
