It is a genuine honour to lead this office as SFU's Vice-President, Academic and Provost. It is a privilege to work with an exceptional team dedicated to supporting SFU's faculty, staff, students, and communities; our University community is made up of leaders engaging in teaching, scholarship and outreach. Their innovation and collective efforts position SFU as a leader amongst modern universities of tomorrow and push the boundaries of knowledge, address contemporary issues, and prepare our students for life.
Our office is tasked with overall oversight, coordination and smooth operations of SFU’s academic programming delivered on our SFU campuses in Burnaby, Surrey and Vancouver as well as in the communities.
Our responsibilities include academic planning and budgeting, quality assurance, student recruitment, retention and support, and faculty relations.
I invite you to learn more about us by exploring this site, as well as those of the faculties and their academic units. Perhaps one day I will have a chance to meet you in person to learn how you plan to or already engage with SFU. I also encourage you to get in touch if you have ideas about how we can improve our web presence to better share information and engage with you.
