Biographical / Historical

The Office of the Provost was created by vote of the Yale Corporation in 1919. The establishment of the office was part of a general University reorganization plan that was submitted to the Corporation by the Committee on Educational Policy. By the term of Provost Edgar S. Furniss (1937-1958), the office had evolved to essentially its present-day function. The provost is the chief academic officer of the University, responsible for administering all of the internal operations of the University concerned with education and research.

Biographical / Historical

Charles Long was Deputy Provost of the University from 1987 to 2010. He came to Yale in 1966, and after a number of years on the faculty of the English Department, moved to the Yale College Dean's Office where he eventually became Dean of Academic Affairs. He later was appointed to the Provost's Office, where he has been since 1983, becoming Deputy Provost of the University in 1987. During his years in the Provost's Office, Deputy Provost Long's responsibilities included many academic departments and a wide variety of professional schools including oversight of many of the Humanities and Social Science departments of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the professional schools of Law and Management, and the University's core academic policies. His portfolio also included the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies and the Center for the Study of Globalization.
