Office of the Provost


The provost is the chief academic officer of the college. Among the responsibilities of the provost are:

  • implementing the educational goals of the college;
  • providing leadership in planning, implementing, and assessing all undergraduate and graduate academic programs;
  • and the hiring and evaluation of faculty.

The associate provost for undergraduate studies, Isabel Moreno-López, provides support and counsel to students on academic matters; develops and enforces academic policies; determines academic standing; reviews petitions; and oversees faculty advising, ACE and the First-Year Seminars.

The associate provost for faculty affairs, Jamie Mullaney, is responsible for faculty development and support and assessment of student learning. She also provides oversight for the Center for the Advancement of Scholarship and Teaching (CAST).

The interim associate provost for graduate and extended programs provides oversight for the Welch Center for Graduate and Professional Studies.

In addition, the Office of the Registrar, the library, and the offices within the Exploration Hub—Office of Global Education, the Career Education Office, the Office of Community-Based Learning—, as well as the Goucher Prison Education Partnership and Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Med Program report directly to the provost.

Questions pertaining to these and related matters should be directed to the Provost's Office. The office is staffed by Special Assistant for Budget and Operations Marcie Ermers.
