Jose Gomez Provost

Cal State LA is a vibrant community of students and faculty who represent the culturally rich and diverse region we serve. They bring a wealth of talent to our classrooms every day. As provost, I am privileged to serve as Cal State LA's chief academic officer, with administrative responsibility for the University’s teaching and research.

Cal State LA is Los Angeles’ premier comprehensive public university. We are ranked number one in the nation for the upward mobility of our students. The educational experience we offer students transforms their lives and future. We fulfill our mission by recognizing the talents, diverse life experiences, and intellectual curiosity of our 28,000 students, and by promoting engaged teaching, learning, scholarship, and research. 
Our nationally renowned faculty are committed to academic excellence and innovative scholarship. Through their teaching, research, mentoring, and service they have created a unique learning environment for our students. 

The Office of the Provost provides oversight of Cal State LA’s eight colleges and the University Library and works in collaboration with Administration and Finance, University Advancement, Student Life, and Enrollment Services. Our mission is to ensure student success by promoting student engagement and active learning, and enabling all students to achieve their educational goals and graduate in a timely manner. 

My colleagues and I look forward to working with you as we continue to build on our accomplishments.
