Newly hired Provost Francis J. Doyle III has announced that his top priority upon starting his new position at Brown will be to find out what a Provost does and what the job entails.
“The Provost is an extremely important position. I know this because they probably wouldn’t be making such a big deal out of me getting hired if it wasn’t,” stated Doyle, determined to get to the bottom of the mystery. “There’s a chance it has something to do with me being an engineer. Maybe they want me to design a building or something?”
“Regardless of the elusive nature of my new position, Brown remains at the forefront of academic research,” continued Doyle as he walked around his new office searching for clues. “I promise I will push to make resources available for Brown’s finest faculty to investigate what a Provost does, as well as related questions, such as what the Office of the Provost does."
At press time, Doyle was seen frantically flipping through the P section of the dictionary.
