Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic)
The Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) (OPVPA) is guided by a clear mission statement.
The OPVPA will ensure that university policies and practices, in both design and implementation, maximize institutional efficiency and local empowerment. While ensuring adherence to University standards, the OPVPA will strive to facilitate local expression and implementation of McGill's academic mission. The OPVPA will also provide administrative assistance, encouragement, support, and strategic guidance to academic units. The OPVPA will be further guided by principles of collaboration and integration, both across its own functions and in relation to other University units and offices.
In executing this mission, the OPVPA will provide the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) (PVPA) with high-level, professional support in fulfilling the office's key mandate to plan, develop, and implement McGill's strategic academic plan; to develop and execute the University's budget framework and process; and to ensure alignment of the University's resources with academic priorities.
