Provost Welcome

Alan-Sams-HEAD-SHOT-2.jpgHowdy!

I am humbled and honored to become the interim provost, vice president for academic affairs and chief academic officer for Texas A&M University. This is a place that has meant so much to my career and to my family, and it is a great pleasure to have the opportunity to serve in this role. I have spent 30 years as a faculty member and administrator here, teaching students, conducting research and helping faculty. My family members have degrees from this great university, and we have raised our family in the Brazos Valley, so we are deeply rooted in Aggieland. 

This is an exciting time to lead the academic enterprise at Texas A&M as the Provost’s Office renews its focus on the academic excellence of our students. The university is undergoing change as it increases its ability to engage externally, its efficiency of operation and the success of its students and faculty. We want to continue our tradition as a land-, sea-, and space-grant university, providing education, research and outreach that are relevant to the needs of society, creating opportunities and impacting our future.

Higher education on the national level is evolving and we want to continue leading on that front.  Reflecting that, we will provide a learning environment that is accessible, affordable and accountable to students and one that is welcoming, respectful and intellectually inspiring as the preeminent institution of higher learning that we are.  

We strive to be approachable and open, so please let our office know how we can help. I will see you around campus.

Gig ’em,

Alan
