About Academic Affairs

In Academic Affairs, we provide exceptional student learning through a breadth of colleges, schools, regional campuses, departments, programs, offices, and an international center that develops and maintains excellence in curriculum, scholarship, creativity, service, and global initiatives. Recognized as one of the best public undergraduate institutions in the nation, we never lose sight of our focus on providing an exemplary educational experience. Our success can be attributed to the personal attention our students receive through dedicated, accessible faculty and staff, a comprehensive advising system, and a wealth of academic resources.
