Welcome to the website for the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President. The Provost's office is responsible for all aspects of the vibrant teaching, research, and service activities at Texas A&M University.

Throughout the last year, we have been engaged in a series of strategic planning exercises built on the imperatives of Vision 2020 and our continued pursuit of preeminence in a number of endeavors.  Be sure and read Action 2015: Education First, our five-year strategic plan, and review the links related to strategic planning and our Academic Master Plan process.

We also recently completed a Strategic Budget Reallocation Process to gather input on and develop recommendations to inform the FY 12 budget preparation process and to further refine our strategic plan. I invite you to read the final report and recommendations.

Please take a moment to browse our website and get a sense of the excitement for learning and discovery that characterize our ten colleges and schools, our libraries, and our numerous research centers and institutes. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about Texas A&M University and its students, faculty and facilities.
