A Newsletter from the Office of the Provost & Chief Academic Officer

A Note from the Provost:


I want to express my gratitude for all of the incredible work the faculty has done this year in support of our thriving academic enterprise. The recent USU Faculty Awards Ceremony highlighted some of that great work, and we look forward to recognizing some of those faculty and celebrating our students at the upcoming Commencement ceremonies. As we look to next year, the Provost’s Office will continue to focus on student success as one of our most important, mission-based, goals. To that end, this newsletter highlights a few of the resources and professional development opportunities available to faculty to help them support the success of our students.
