Academic Affairs

The academic area of the University is organized into four colleges. Each college is coordinated by a Dean who reports to the Provost. Associate Deans are appointed within each college to oversee evaluation issues and assist the Deans. Colleges are divided into separate Departments – each of which offers a major(s) and/or minor(s). Departments are administered by Chairpersons who coordinate their operations with the Dean and Associate Dean of the respective college.
