As Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Anne D’Alleva serves as UConn’s chief academic officer, with responsibility for all academic units and operations.

Dr. D'Alleva was named permanent provost by President Maric effective December 1, 2022. Prior to her appointment in May 2022 as interim provost, Dr. D’Alleva served as Dean of the School of Fine Arts since 2015. She is the first woman to serve as provost in UConn’s history.
