Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs


Each of the eight academic colleges at the university is led by a dean. Deans are charged with staying on top of necessary accreditations, certifications, making curriculum changes, hiring new professors, and overseeing the budgets and programs of their departments.

Our deans have extensive experiences, and most are professors of courses in their area of expertise.
