Academic Affairs

The Office of the Provost provides the foundation for the academic success of all VCU students.

Under the leadership of the provost, Fotis Sotiropoulos, Ph.D., and the interim senior vice provost for academic affairs, Andrew Arroyo, Ed.D., the office fosters the development (and growth) of the university’s academic programs, emphasizing high-quality teaching and learning experiences and supporting deans, faculty and students as they pursue their scholarly goals.

It also ensures the integrity, rigor and transparency of academic programs and provides leadership to critical areas tied to student success, and serves as the university’s liaison to the State Council for Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
