The Academic Division provides the foundation for the central educational mission of the College.  Its academic and administrative departments support curricular and co-curricular excellence, creativity, and innovation.  At the core of the Academic Division is the faculty, whose work advances knowledge and creates the curricular programs that guide students’ intellectual growth.  The division collaborates both internally with other divisions of the College and externally to recruit, enroll, and support students, to facilitate student academic success, and to promote faculty excellence.  All members of the Academic Division are guided by a dedication to maximizing the resources and conditions for inclusive educational excellence both in and outside the classroom.
