Office of the Provost

Welcome!

The University of Massachusetts Boston is pleased to welcome you to this site, which represents the Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

This office is responsible for ensuring, pursuing, and sustaining the quality of intellectual life associated with the university, including that of all academic programs, providing an environment within which the best teaching, learning, and research are nurtured, respected, and enriched, where engagement with the communities (local, national, and global) is valued and conserved, and supporting a cultural and social climate where exploration and development of self, as well as the inter- and trans-national “other,” are cultivated.

Visitors to this site, who are not members of our university, are encouraged to find out more about us. You are likely to discover that you will want to join our community of first-class scholars and learners.
