The responsibilities of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost are broad in scope and encompass two domains.
The "Executive Vice Chancellor" (EVC) serves as the Chancellor's leading senior executive responsible for day-to-day campus operations; convenes as appropriate Vice-Chancellors and other senior administrators to address issues that cut across divisional lines; manages the campuswide budget process, including in-year operating budget allocations and capital finances; and leads strategic campus initiatives as may be determined in close collaboration with the Chancellor.
The "Provost" serves as the chief academic officer of the Berkeley campus and has principal responsibility for the planning, development, implementation, assessment and improvement of all academic programs, policies and supporting infrastructure including facilities and information technology. The Provost has responsibility for ensuring Berkeley's academic preeminence through planning for faculty recruitment, retention and renewal as well as through rigorous review of faculty appointments, tenure and promotion for Berkeley's 1,473 faculty. The Provost also has overall responsibility for the planning, quality and delivery of education provided to Berkeley's 25,700 undergraduate students and 10,100 graduate students. These activities are carried out in consultation and cooperation with the Academic Senate under Berkeley's shared governance model.
Currently assisting the EVCP are the Vice Provost for Faculty, the Vice Provost for Strategic Academic Planning and Facilities, the VIce Chancellor for Undergraduate Education, and the Associate EVCP and Chief of Staff. Also reporting to the EVCP are 19 deans, the University Librarian, the Associate Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer, and the heads of several affiliated programs and centers.
