"Putting an end to a three-month scandal in the halls of higher learning on Alderaan, Provost Dalus Othona formally censured and suspended Dean Halcor Raystel."
HoloNet News's article on the event[src]

Provost was a position at the University of Alderaan held in 22 BBY by Dalus Othona. The Provost held the authority to suspend members of the faculty. That year, Othona censured and punished Dean Halcor Raystel thusly after numerous cases of undesirable conduct.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The position of Provost was mentioned in an issue of the HoloNet News feed (2002), Volume 531, Issue 47, that was published in-universe on the fourteenth day of the third month in 22 BBY. The article that references the position, entitled "Dean of Aldera Suspended," was written by Pablo Hidalgo and Paul Ens.[1] In real life, provosts are the chief academic administrators in American,[2] Canadian,[3] and Australian institutions of higher learning.[4] In the United Kingdom[5] and the Republic of Ireland, the provost is the head of the institution.[6]
