The Office of Academic Affairs is responsible for planning, developing, and implementing the university’s overall academic vision and goals by providing resources and coordinating contributions of our organizational units and personnel.
With the expertise of our faculty and staff, we seek to provide an interdisciplinary education resulting from classroom interactions, quality instruction, internships, co-curricular activities, practicum, research and the infusion of technology into our curriculum. Our mission is to provide a quality educational experience that develops life skills and prepares our students for competition in the local, state, regional and global market places. From our student-centered approach, we operate with high expectations and accountability for the university’s faculty, staff, administrators and students.
