Office of the Provost and Dean

The Provost Office is directly responsible for overseeing faculty, students and administrators in all phases of service, teaching and research.

Our office provides faculty, staff, and students with the support needed to be highly successful in all aspects of academia; whether that be offering data through institutional research, overseeing implementation of operating salary and capital budgets, or providing students with the close connections Washington College strives to achieve.

Please note that forms and documents specifically for faculty are now located on the secure Faculty Admin SharePoint Site.

How We Are Spending Our Summer Vacation

The Provost's Office is hard at work over the summer months to prepare for the return of students, faculty, and staff.
