Under the leadership of Provost Beverly Wendland, Washington University’s vice provosts plan, lead and implement key academic initiatives across the university. All Vice Provosts are part of University Council (UC), the senior leadership of Washington University in St. Louis, providing strategic and operational guidance to the chancellor and UC colleagues on challenges and opportunities related to the mission of the university. The vice provosts work with school deans and vice deans to administer the academic program and coordinate functions of Washington University to support this mission.
