Welcome to the Office of the Provost

The University of Waterloo is one of the most exciting academic institutions in the world. As vice-president, academic and provost, I am honoured to be part of this team.

I work closely with President Hamdullahpur to deliver academic and administrative excellence across the entire institution, in large part by leading and supporting our excellent team of deans, faculty members, and staff. I serve as chief academic and budget officer, and carry responsibility for day-to-day operation of the university.

In everything we do, our office is committed to the principles of communication, teamwork, and providing excellent service to our colleagues on and off campus.

Send us your feedback about this site - what works for you and where you need more information – and thank you for visiting.
