Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs
The Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs oversees Vanderbilt's broad divisions of learning, student residential experiences, and student academic support services. Through this work, the Vice Provost serves three of the four pillars of the Academic Strategic Plan: the undergraduate residential experience, educational technologies, and trans-institutional programs.
In direct support of these themes, the portfolio of the Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs includes the residential college system, which is currently comprised of the Martha Rivers Ingram Commons, the recently built Warren and Moore Colleges, and the soon-to-open E. Bronson Ingram College. The Office of the Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs also acts as the umbrella for innovation and cross-campus collaborations in educational technologies. In response to the Academic Strategic Plan, the Office of the Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs also developed and launched Design as an Immersive Vanderbilt Experience (DIVE), the University's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).
In addition to this work, the Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs provides oversight to an array of student-facing and learning-centered offices and divisions, such as the Office of the Dean of Students, The Jean and Alexander Heard Library System, the Global Education Office, initiatives in undergraduate research, and the newly developed Undergraduate Business Minor.
In uniting these areas of the university, the Office of the Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs serves to foster an enriching academic and residential experience for all Vanderbilt students.
