We accomplish this mission by:

  • Meeting regularly to address critical issues within our areas of responsibility.
  • Promoting open communication across our areas and with other members of the campus community.
  • Understanding and sharing information about PASSHE issues and initiatives.
  • Providing relevant data and analyses to support academic affairs decision making.
  • Advocating for new or improved programs or methods of program delivery.
  • Making recommendations to the Provost and to the Cabinet about strategic directions for the leadership and management of academic affairs.
