Pamela Whitten is the senior vice president for academic affairs and provost. Do not include her middle initial on first reference. As the chief academic officer of the University of Georgia, the senior vice president for academic affairs and provost oversees instruction, research, public service and outreach, student affairs and information technology. The vice presidents of these five areas report to the provost, as do the deans of UGA’s 17 schools and colleges as well as the campus dean of the Georgia Regents University/UGA Medical Partnership. Associate provosts for academic fiscal affairs, academic planning, academic programs, the Honors Program, institutional diversity, international education and the libraries also report to the provost, as does the vice provost for academic affairs.
