Welcome to the Office of the Provost and Dean of Faculty. As Colby’s chief academic officer, I work with my staff and the faculty to foster student learning—the central mission of the College—by funding faculty teaching and research initiatives, offering professional development, and providing support for academic departments and programs.
The Provost’s office has worked with the faculty to launch the Colby Writing Program, the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Center for the Arts and Humanities, and the Colby Liberal Arts Symposium. The Office of the Provost and Dean of Faculty also provides support for and oversight of the Colby Libraries; offices of the Registrar, Off-Campus Study, and Institutional Research and Assessment; and the Department of Athletics.
