Academic Affairs


Academic Affairs  cultivates a student-centered learning community that embraces innovation. It promotes excellence in teaching, learning, research, scholarly creativity, cultural appreciation, and artistic expression.

Four core functions of Academic Affairs are:

  • The recruitment, retention, and success of students through our inspired teaching, proactive advising, and long-standing mentoring tradition;
  • Academic assessment and planning, faculty evaluation, and program review and improvement;
  • The promotion of faculty and staff development and active engagement in sponsored program activities; and
  • Technology support for all university functions and operations.
