“I am thrilled and honored to serve as Pratt’s next provost, and eager to work with President Bronet and the entire Pratt community to advance the work of the Institute,” Dr. Heiland said. “Pratt faculty, staff, and students are quite literally shaping the world we all want to live in, working on leading edges of their disciplines and finding interdisciplinary strategies for engaging the most interesting and pressing challenges of our time. I am energized by the prospect of what we can do together.”

Dr. Heiland joined Pratt as associate provost for academic affairs in 2016, and became vice provost just over a year later.
