The Provost and Dean's Office
The Provost and Dean's Office oversees all aspects of the academic and residential experience so that we can provide a dynamic, integrated learning environment for all students.
The way in which we recruit, support, and evaluate faculty, design our ever-emergent curriculum, implement the Plan process, and provide many varied opportunities for outside-of-the-classroom learning enables students to create a rigorous, wide-ranging, and cohesive course of study within a community of caring and motivated peers. We are dedicated to providing the most meaningful and transformative education possible, and (like Bennington students and faculty) constantly review, question, and—when necessary—change our approach to better achieve these ends.
The following offices and programs fall under the umbrella of the Provost's Office: Academic Services; Crossett Library; the Elizabeth Coleman Center for the Advancement of Public Action; Field Work Term; Graduate Programs (MFA in Dance, Music, Public Action, and Writing), and Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program; Institutional Research; Registrar; Student Life.
