Welcome from the Office of the Provost

Our Mission:

The Provost oversees the entire Academic Enterprise, serving as an advocate for the interests of all our students, residents and members of our faculty and staff.

The Provost’s Office works to ensure continued excellence in the areas of education, research, and patient care. We are committed to recruiting and to retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff members. We are also dedicated to providing the best available resources to help our Academic Enterprise flourish and fulfill our overall mission to improve health for the people of Texas and around the world.

I am honored to serve as Executive Vice President and Provost alongside such a diverse group of people who are compassionate about improving the health of our community and beyond. Here at UTMB, we are proud to be part of an institution that both is rooted in rich history, as the first academic health center in Texas, and reaches toward the future through ongoing innovation.
