Welcome from the Provost/Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

Welcome to the Office of the Provost at the College of Staten Island. The Provost is the College’s chief academic officer, overseeing the development and implementation of academic programs and policies consistent with the mission of CSI and the City University of New York.  Reporting directly to the Provost are two Associate Provosts, the five division and school Deans, the Head Librarian, the Registrar, the Office of Institutional Research, and the Center for Global Engagement.  Several additional offices report to the Associate Provosts, as outlined on this website.

In addition to providing leadership and coordination for all of CSI’s academic programs, the Office of the Provost is deeply engaged in strengthening practices to increase student success and promoting high-impact instructional practices and active learning.  The Office also represents and supports faculty in all facets of their professional work, including research and creative activities, which are at the heart of our academic programs. Ours is a distinguished faculty, committed to students and their experience.  I encourage all students to take advantage of the diversity and quality of programs offered at the College in setting their paths to graduation.
