Welcome Message from the Provost

Welcome to the Office of the Provost at John Jay College website, a gateway to learning about my current priorities and the operations in Academic Affairs.  As Provost and Chief Academic Officer, it is my goal to ensure we achieve our mission to educate for justice and advance the knowledge that builds and sustains just societies.  I am proud to serve as the CAO for our distinguished and innovative faculty, to foster their exciting teaching and research, and to safeguard for our deserving students a foundational education that increases diversity in the workplace and advances justice everywhere.

Academic Affairs includes the Offices of Undergraduate Studies, Graduate Studies, Research, the Associate to the Provost for Faculty, Professional Studies, Institutional Effectiveness, and the Registrar.  The Office of the Provost works collaboratively across all divisions of the college to increase student retention, graduation, and post-graduate success, and to ensure that we fulfill the academic mission of John Jay.

I encourage you to explore our academic programs and offices, and come and visit with me.
