Provost Andrew Hale Feinstein

Andrew (Andy) Hale Feinstein provides leadership for all academic matters at San Jose State in his role as provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. As the chief academic officer of the university, he provides support to seven colleges, the College of International and Extended Studies, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories and the SJSU Research Foundation.

Feinstein supports 35,000 students, 1,900 faculty members, and more than 550 staff members and administrators, while also overseeing 154 degree programs.

The provost works closely with academic deans, department heads, student services professionals, faculty and staff to provide the highest possible quality of educational programs. An important part of the provost's job is also to ensure they recruit, retain, encourage and support an outstanding and diverse faculty. The provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs reports to the president, serves on the president’s cabinet and represents the campus in the president’s absence.

Working in collaboration with the university’s senior leadership and the Academic Senate, Feinstein oversees the quality of academic programs, faculty instruction and student learning, faculty research and creative activity, academic outreach and community partnerships, strategic planning and budgetary allocations in support of academic priorities. Priorities for 2017-18 include SJSU's Four Pillars of Student Success and SJSU's RSCA Plan: Faculty and Student Intellectual Engagement and Performance.

Feinstein led the division in implementing the 2014-16 Academic Affairs Working Plan. Priority groups focused on 21st Century Teaching and Learning Spaces; Educational Excellence and Student Experience; and Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity and Professional Development for the past two years.
