Provost Welcome

Weichold Headshot
Howdy, and welcome to Texas A&M University,


I am pleased to serve as Interim Provost and Executive Vice President for the oldest public institution of higher education in Texas. I have had the honor of serving our university as a professor of electrical and computer engineering, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of Engineering, and executive director of the Halliburton Engineering Global Program. From 2007 to 2015, I was Dean and campus CEO for Texas A&M University's branch campus in Doha, Qatar and from 1998 to 2006 I served as Texas A&M’s Associate Provost responsible for undergraduate academic programs. I would be remiss if I did not mention that I am also a proud former student!


I am excited to serve in this interim role as Texas A&M tackles today’s myriad challenges. I am proud of its history as a land grant institution and its commitment to provide its students access to a high quality, affordable education. Texas A&M has an outstanding faculty, recognized internationally as leaders in their fields but also recognized as exemplary educators in the classroom. Our outstanding students come from around the world to be a part of this vibrant learning environment and then graduate to become leaders in their own right. With its outstanding students, faculty, and staff, our university is uniquely positioned to respond to state, national, and global opportunities.

Sincerely,

Mark H. Weichold ‘78

Interim Provost and Executive Vice President
