Office of the Provost

Welcome to the Provost’s Office at Western Carolina University.  The Provost oversees all academic programs of the university, as well as a number of student support services.  We hope whether you are a student considering WCU for study, a community member seeking to access expertise, or a faculty member weighing career options that you explore WCU’s rich and unique academic offerings.  This is a university that places students and high academic quality at the center of everything we do.  WCU supports a vibrant campus community packed with cultural, sports, and intellectual events, close mentoring relationships between faculty and students, and many opportunities for international study, service learning, community engagement, and outdoor recreation.  It is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, nestled within the Smoky Mountains.  We seek local, regional, state, and national opportunities for partnerships to offer our significant intellectual resources for problem solving and to benefit from applied learning opportunities that our alumni and constituents can offer our students and faculty.  It is great to be a Catamount, and we hope you will choose to get involved with Western Carolina University.
