Areas included in the Provost’s portfolio include:

Academic Programs

Academic Deans

Academic Grants

Institutional Research & Assessment

Library, Gallery and Media Centers

Public Service Centers & Programs

The Provost is also the college's senior academic representative to a dozen or so external agencies on which either the college depends (like the Washington State Interinstitutional Committee of Academic Officers, who make recommendations to state policymakers) or whose work on the national scene helps further and protect Evergreen's values and vision as a non-traditional public higher education institution.

The Provost at Evergreen performs all of her duties in close collaboration with the Academic Deans and the other Vice Presidents.

  • Laura Coghlan, Director of Institutional Research and Assessment
  • John McLain, Academic Grants Manager
  • Lorri Moore, Academic Financial Support Services Manager
  • Walter Niemiec, Associate Vice President for Academic Budget and Planning
