Meet the EVP&P

Dr. Diane Chase

The provost is the chief academic officer and is in charge of the institution in the president's absence. The provost works closely with the academic deans, fauculty, student services professionals, and other areas to provide the highest possible quality of educational programs, co-curricular activities, research opportunities, community impact, and creative experiences both within and outside the classroom for undergraduate and graduate students.

Another aspect of the provost's job is also to ensure that the university recruits, retains, encourages, and supports an outstanding and diverse faculty; each of whom will make positive contributions to the university and to their discipline in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service.

The provost also oversees academic and budgetary policy and priorities and partners with the president to implement UNLV's ambitious strategic plan to become a top tier public university in research, education, and community impact.
