Historia

Office of Provost was originally established as Dean who served as Registrar. In 1971, the position title became "Dean of the College." Then, in 1978, the position was revised to "Dean of Academic Affairs," and soon after that - in 1979 - the position became that of a Vice President.

The Vice President, Academic, position was the senior academic leader of the University, appointed by the Board of Governors of the University, upon the recommendation of the President. The Vice President was responsible to the President for all academic affairs of the University, including representing the academic interests of the University on the President's Cabinet and Administrative Council and, when called upon by the President, to the Board of Governors; preparing and presenting proposals and reports to the President, President's Cabinet, and the Board of Governors; monitoring the quality of academic programs; chairing the Undergraduate Academic Council, the Deans' Council, the Academic Policy Development Committee, and faculty business meetings, and representing the University at the AUCC Vice President's committee and the CCCU's Chief Academic Officer's meetings. Over time, the Vice President became responsible for the recruitment, supervision, and professional development of educational leaders and faculty.

In January of 2007, the position of Provost was established to be responsible to the president and the governing board, and oversee all educational affairs and activities, including research, academic and athletic personnel. The Provost positions grew to serve as a member of both the University Finance Board and President’s Senior Leadership Team and is the chief educational program officer for the University. Increased responsibilities included oversight of strategies, planning, development, implementation and assessment of all educational policies and programs, including review of faculty appointments, tenure & promotion, student life personnel, academic research, and financial matters relating to Faculties, Schools, Student Life departments, Athletics, and regional campuses. The Provost is Chair of the Dean’s Council.

In 2008, as directive of the Provost, TWU Senate was established to develop and monitor policies, procedures, and quality standards pertaining to the academic enterprise with an overall aim of promoting educational vitality. The Senate reports to the Provost from whom the Senate receives its mandate, delegated accountability and responsibility.

In 2016, the position of Vice Provost Teaching and Learning was created to assist in the implementation of the new undergraduate core requirement.
