Helble received his BS in chemical engineering from Lehigh University, and his PhD in chemical engineering from MIT.

Responsibilities

The Provost is Dartmouth's chief academic officer and chief budget officer, directly responsible for overseeing the overall academic integrity of the entire institution and for those operations transcending the work of a single faculty. Dartmouth's professional schools, major academic support units, and several other offices, academic centers and institutes report to the Provost.

Working with the academic deans, the Provost also is responsible for supporting and advancing the programs, the teaching, and the scholarship of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Geisel School of Medicine, the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, Thayer School of Engineering and the Tuck School of Business. The appropriate Deans have full operating responsibility in each case.

The Provost serves as the chair of the Budget Committee, and has major responsibility for setting budget priorities and developing a strategic financial plan.

The Provost also coordinates support of the research infrastructure and is responsible for coordinating government relations activities.

A number of offices, support centers, and programs report to the Provost. More information can be found here.
