The records of the Thurgood Marshall College Provost, formerly the Third College Provost, contain administrative correspondence
and subject files, outgoing chronological correspondence files, newspaper clippings (1969-1981), and photographs (1970-1989)
of people and events. Included are the files of Joseph Watson (1970-1981), Faustina Solis (1981-1988) and Cecil Lytle (1988-present).
The files document the functions and activities of the office including academic and facilities planning, the development
of new academic programs, student/faculty organizations, and the administration of both routine matters and controversial
issues and disputes.
The Thurgood Marshall Provost acts as the chief academic and administrative officer for the college. The Provost holds a
tenured faculty appointment in a campus academic department and reports directly to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
The Academic Senate's Committee on Educational Policy has delegated the provost authority to sign student petitions and monitor
Senate regulations. The Provost also has responsibility for freshman orientation, academic counseling, graduation, the designation
of college honors, and dismissal. The Provost works closely with and partially supervises the College Dean.
