Academic Affairs

Role and Mission

The Academic Affairs committee strives to enhance University policies surrounding academics. The policies we are trying to enhance regard those concerning SEIs, advising, affordability in many capacities, STEP, Libraries, and many more. As a committee, we seek accountability of University Administration in terms of the student's experience with teaching, learning, and everything else related to academic affairs.
