Office of the Provost and VP for Academic Affairs

Dr. Gene Bourgeois, provost

Message from the Provost

Welcome to the Web site for the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Texas State University. We have designed this site as a resource for those who would like to learn more about academic programs, policies and activities at the university.

When President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Higher Education Act on our campus in 1965, he opened the doors to students who had thought college opportunities were out of reach. Today, that social contract remains at the heart of Texas State’s mission and is expressed through our strategic goals as we seek to:

  • Promote academic quality by building and supporting a distinguished faculty.
  • Provide opportunities for a public university education and contribute to economic and cultural development.
  • Provide a premier student-centered, educational experience that fosters retention and success.
  • Enrich our learning and working environment by attracting and supporting a more diverse faculty, staff, and student body.


To reach these goals, we work with the President’s Cabinet, the deans and faculty of the academic units, staff, students, the community and other stakeholders to develop academic priorities and provide resources to move them forward. The provost’s office ensures excellence in all teaching, research and service activities that benefit the educational needs of Texas’ diverse population.

Thank you for your interest in the work of the provost’s office. Please contact us if we can assist you in learning more about Texas State University.

Sincerely,
Gene Bourgeois
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
