Office of the Provost
About Provost Kotlikoff
It is my honor to serve as Cornell’s 16th provost, where I act as the university’s chief academic officer and chief operations officer. In consultation with President Pollack, the vice provosts, university deans and other senior leadership, my office oversees Cornell’s teaching, research and outreach, ensuring that we advance these cornerstones of the university mission.
The faculty is the university. They do the discovery, they apply those discoveries, and they teach and inspire our students. It’s really impossible to overestimate the role of the faculty at Cornell – they really are what is permanent and fundamental about our academic institution.
