Welcome to the Office of the Provost at the University of Windsor.

The Office of the Provost is dedicated to supporting and enhancing the university’s academic mission – education, scholarship, research, and engagement – through commitment to high intellectual standards, human rights and freedoms, the centrality of the student experience, civility and respect, responsible stewardship and engagement with regard to issues of importance to the world and our communities, as well as the needs and rights of people, cultures, and the environment.

This mission, and these commitments, form the basis of our work and our decision making. Three key priorities provide focal points for sustainable advancement of this mission: Reputation, Recruitment, and Retention.
