Academic Affairs

Through administration of the Division of Academic Affairs, the Office of the Provost provides coordination and support for all academic activities at SHSU. This includes oversight of our eight colleges, The Graduate and Professional School, the Newton Gresham Library, the Elliott T. Bowers Honors College, among a variety of academic programs and support units online and at our campuses in Huntsville, Conroe, and The Woodlands.

We’re here to help our faculty, staff, and students be successful in all academic areas. If you can’t find the resources you need, please use this Provost Staff Duties page to find who may be best equipped to answer your question.
