Provostial Model at McGill

At McGill, the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic), reporting to the Principal, is the chief academic officer (after the Principal) and the chief budget officer. In this capacity, he oversees the strategies, planning, development, implementation and assessment of all academic programs and the development of the overall budget, including allocation of funds and resources in alignment with McGill’s academic priorities. This Provostial model was adopted at McGill in 2007 with the view that academic planning, budget planning and approval are integrated and work to support the achievement of the University’s academic mission.

The Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) and his team work with Faculties and units across the University to ensure that McGill remains a global leader among the world’s premier research-intensive, student-centred universities.
