The Provost’s Office supports the core academic mission of The Graduate Center. It aims to sustain The Graduate Center in its commitment to diversity and to opportunity for people in New York and around the world in pursuing advanced research and disseminating it for the public good. The Graduate Center, with its more than 30 doctoral programs and 16 master’s programs, is known for its innovative interdisciplinary research. Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, it draws inspiration from the many and varied cultural currents surrounding it.

In addition to its own responsibilities, the Provost’s Office works closely with the President’s Office in academic planning and in support of the initiatives of the president.

The Provost’s Office supervises degree programs and centers and institutes; research endeavors; faculty hiring and promotion; the provision of courses and academic instruction; the Registrar’s Office; the development of new degree programs; the recruitment of students; fellowships, financial aid, and student employment; the provision of NYSHIP, subsidized health insurance for doctoral students employed in certain CUNY job titles; and the provision of services for students with disabilities and of psychological counseling. The Provost’s Office also oversees services for international students and other offices and initiatives.

These services and responsibilities are carried out by leaders in many different offices within the broad rubric of the Provost’s Office. These leaders and their colleagues share a commitment to making The Graduate Center a responsive institution that is a stimulating and rewarding place to study and to work.
