A dangerous math major .... he could tell you about his math, but then he'd have to kill you.

Exactly what does a provost do? I've never really known. I do know our team once had dinner at the Tulane provost's home along with a gaggle of faculty and boosters... I believe that same provost was the one who later got busted for embezzling from the school...

Think presidential cabinets. Think of the president's chief of staff. At the university level that is, essentially, the provost.

The Provost is the Chief Academic Officer of the University. The Deans (except med school) report to the Provost, as does the Assistant and Associate Provosts. They act as liasons between schools and admin functions of the school.
