Welcome to the web site for the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost (EVCP) at UC Berkeley. The EVCP position is currently held on an interim basis by Professor Carol Christ, who began serving in the role on May 1, 2016.
Responsibilities of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost encompass two domains:
As Executive Vice Chancellor, Christ serves as Chancellor Nicholas Dirks' leading senior executive responsible for UC Berkeley’s day-to-day operations, working closely with the Chancellor to develop and implement his vision and priorities for the campus.
As Provost, Christ is UC Berkeley’s chief academic officer, responsible for the planning, development, implementation, assessment and enhancement of all academic programs, policies, and supporting infrastructure. She is responsible for ensuring Berkeley's academic preeminence by overseeing faculty recruitment, retention, and renewal as well as through review of appointments, tenure, and promotion for Berkeley's 1,500 full-time faculty. Christ is also responsible for the planning, quality, and delivery of education provided to Berkeley's 27,000 undergraduate students and 10,000 graduate students. These activities are carried out in partnership with the Academic Senate under Berkeley’s principles of shared governance.
Supporting interim EVCP Christ in these efforts is a team of Vice Chancellors, Vice Provosts, Deans, and professional staff, all devoted to sustaining Berkeley's public mission and commitment to both access and excellence.
