Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs
The Vice President of Academic Affairs is the university’s chief academic officer, charged by the President with overseeing all aspects of education, research, and public engagement of the university. The Vice President of Academic Affairs works closely with the President, the other vice presidents and directors responsible for various functional areas of the university, the deans of academic colleges, schools, and other affiliated programs, academic staff, the Faculty Council, and various committees in setting academic priorities and allocating resources to achieve core missions of the institution.
