Covid-19 Office Operations

Our offices are available for in-person, phone, or video appointments. Email or call for more information. Additional information is also available on the UA coronavirus information website.

A key element of UAS’ leadership structure is the Provost’s Council which currently meets twice per academic year. This entity consists of academic leaders, including the Provost, Academic Deans, the Library Director, extended Campus Directors, the Registrar, the Director of Institutional Effectiveness, the Faculty Senate President, Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, and the Vice Chancellor for Administration. The UAS Provost’s Council serves as a key forum for strategic planning and cross-institutional coordination, supporting the Provost in ensuring the quality of all academic programs and services. It also works to ensure integration of student services, enrollment management, and academic functions across the university.

Executive Provost's Council is a subset of Provost Council that meets monthly with the provost to address academic matters. The Executive Provost Council consists of the two extended Campus Directors, the Library Director, and the three Academic Deans.
