Student Academic Affairs

All undergraduate student support activities including recruiting, advising, enrollment management, and student success are overseen by Student Academic Affairs. Centralized professional academic advising is coupled with faculty advising in CNAS majors to guide undergraduate students through their curricula.  The college also utilizes early engagement and mentoring strategies such as Freshman Learning Communities and summer research experiences to promote retention and graduation in science majors. Transfer student outreach and research experience programming are also employed.
