Provost Newsletter

Read Past Editions of Provost Tighe’s Newsletter

McMaster’s Provost and Vice-President (Academic), Dr. Susan Tighe, serves as the university’s Chief Academic Officer and Chief Budget Officer. Through this lens, Provost Tighe curates news from around campus that she shares in her newsletter to faculty and staff members.

News from the Office of the Provost provides “news you can use,” updates and celebratory posts. It also introduces our campus community to working groups and university units that people may have heard of, but may not know who members are or what they do.

Look for the newsletter in your email inbox, from Provost Tighe and with the subject line, News from the Provost.

Past editions of the newsletter can be accessed via the archives below.
