Welcome from Provost Dennis Assanis
Welcome to Stony Brook University's Office of the Provost website. The Office of the Provost carries responsibility for the academic mission of the west campus, providing direct supervision for all academic units, support services and operations, and coordinating all academic programs. The Deans and Directors of the Colleges, Schools, Libraries, Centers and Institutes, other than those in the Health Science Center, report to the Provost. The Provost acts on behalf of the President in the absence of the President. The Provost works closely with the Dean of the Medical School/Vice President of the Health Sciences Center and the Vice President for Research in academic and research issues that concern the University as a whole.
