Provost Welcome

Weichold HeadshotHowdy!

I am honored and humbled to be chosen to serve as interim provost and executive vice president.

I wish the best of success to my friend Dr. Mark Weichold as he takes on the position of associate vice chancellor for academic affairs at The Texas A&M University System.

I have been a faculty member at Texas A&M for more than three decades. I joined the Department of Biology in 1990, where I am now a professor of biology and science education policy. I also served my college as associate dean for undergraduate programs from 2000 to 2016, before I joined the Office of the Provost.

I have a deep passion for student success and am grateful to have been given the opportunity to help our institution achieve the retention and graduation goals of Texas A&M’s Student Success Initiative. I am delighted to see that, with the help of all our faculty and staff, we have created Hullabaloo U courses for first-year students and strengthened similar courses across the entire campus, which make the educational environment more personalized and welcoming for students. In addition, I have overseen several initiatives to help us reach these goals of student success: The Routh First-Generation Center, campus-wide adoption of the advising platform EAB, and the Student Success Help Desk.

I look forward to taking a more holistic approach to the overall academic enterprise from the seat of the provost.

I have been heartened by how the entire Texas A&M community – from students to staff to faculty and administrators – has shown a strengthened sense of community during the historic events of recent years. I feel certain that the Aggie spirit of selfless service you all embody through your actions will continue, and I look forward to working with all sectors of academia as we move forward.
 
Sincerely,
 

Timothy P. Scott '89

Interim Provost and Executive Vice President
