Office of the Provost

Office of the Provost

The Office of the Provost promotes and pursues excellence in the university's academic units, oversees all Academic Affairs units at UT Dallas and sponsors faculty hiring, faculty promotion and tenure, and all academic programs. As Provost, Dr. Inga Musselman provides oversight to the seven academic deans, the graduate dean (Graduate Studies), the undergraduate dean (Undergraduate Education), and other programs across the campus, including the McDermott Scholars Program, and the McDermott Libraries.

Academic Affairs units work collaboratively to provide an interdisciplinary academic program focused on high quality instruction and learning in a research-oriented setting with a small, liberal arts college sensibility. The Office of the Provost maintains an active role in the application and dissemination of policy, the development of new degree programs, and the enhancement of academic research.

One of the goals of this site is to provide a single point of entry to many of the resources faculty need to conduct their professional lives as simply as possible. To that end, this site provides direct links to a number of sites faculty members use in submitting course syllabi, review course evaluations, and proposing new academic degree programs.
