Ask A Provost 

The Ask a Provost program provides sitting chief academic officers (CAOs) who are members of ACAO with an opportunity for a confidential conversation with a retired CAO about day to day challenges or more complex planning issues inherent in the role. Given the complexity of the job, CAOs may benefit from a neutral third-party to serve as a sounding board. Ask a Provost was created by the ACAO Advisory Council and offers a confidential, safe space for open peer-to-peer exchange. This service is a FREE resource for ACAO members. Read more...
