Welcome to OAA

Welcome to the Office of Academic Affairs


The Division of Academic Affairs is comprised of ten academic departments, tutoring and advisement services as well as numerous academic programs and offices.  Under the direction of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) provides leadership for the division and oversees curricular initiatives, instruction, accreditation, licensure, faculty matters and administrative processes for the division's programs and offices.  In addition, OAA is responsible for providing professional development opportunities for faculty and staff to further pedagogy, innovation and collaboration, and to increase faculty research activity and scholarship.


OAA supports student success through the integration of college-readiness skills within course curricula and program offerings.  Honors courses, capstone experiences, service learning, field experiences and undergraduate research activities provide students with an array of opportunities for skills development and enrichment.  OAA also works collaboratively with other campus divisions to develop and offer programming designed to accelerate student academic progress, increase graduation and senior-college transfer rates, and link students to gainful employment.
