Martha Pollack, Provost

The University of Michigan's mission is, "to serve the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving, and applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future." We seek to create and sustain an environment that supports learning in many forms—teaching, research, artistic performance, public service, and community engagement—and that fosters exploration and discovery.

Recognizing that a vibrant and productive intellectual community has many benefits to those within it and to society more broadly, we strive to recruit the finest students, faculty, and researchers to our campus. Ours is a diverse community in many senses and we enjoy the learning opportunities that this provides.

Thank you for your interest in the work of the Office of the Provost. Please browse our web pages and learn more about the work we do to support our students, faculty, staff, the state of Michigan, and the world.
