Who We Are

Together, Provost McBride and the leadership team seek to engage the university community in their mission to advance Emory. Through collaboration, they establish the policies and priorities to make this vision a reality.

Provost McBride on How We'll Succeed

In an era where there seem to be fewer and fewer champions for the critical role that is played by higher education in our democracy, we must not doubt the importance of bridges that we build. When we are called upon as institutions — as we often are in this day and age — to explain what it is we do in higher education, ready-made answers for the sound bite are sometimes difficult to come by.

Our office covers a broad range of schools, colleges, offices, and centers that contribute to the intellectual life of Emory.

As the chief academic officer of Emory University, my mission is to advance Emory's academic progress and nurture its intellectual life by engaging and promoting the community of faculty, students, and staff.

As the chair of the Ways and Means Committee, I lead the preparation of the university's annual unrestricted operating budget.

My team and I collaborate with leaders and partners to formulate university policy and academic priorities and ensure appropriate allocation of resources and space. In addition to managing the promotion and tenure process, we initiate cross-cutting opportunities and coordinate initiatives in undergraduate, graduate, and professional education.
