I keep hearing the word “Provost“ get tossed around?? Can someone just, like, let me know what that is on the dl? Thanks.

This shit? Not helpful. What the hell is “a senior administrative officer” supposed to do?

I’m pretty sure it’s not a real job. I know Beth Winkelstein is our current “Provost” but I'm not convinced that that’s a real person either.

Anyways, if you have any ideas, please let us know in the comments on Facebook! We read them really diligently every week and take pointers.
