Students learn (and explore and work and travel); faculty teach (and research and mentor and collaborate). We help them succeed in both (and everything else).
The Office of Academic Affairs works on everything having to do with the classroom—and a lot that goes on outside of the classroom. That means we do everything from setting policies and figuring out what classes are offered, to helping faculty find funding for student research and continue to innovate in the classroom.
A lot of what we do takes place behind the scenes for most students, but that doesn’t mean we’re hidden or inaccessible: we’re here to help students succeed, and we—along with other offices on campus—are always available to meet with students.
