About Office of Academic Affairs

The University is guided by a comprehensive academic plan. Under the direction of the vice-president, the Office of Academic Affairs spearheads the university's progress in academic programming, faculty development, and student academic affairs.

The Office of Academic Affairs provides faculty, department chairs, and deans with resources supporting faculty development in the full range of teaching, research, and outreach activities. The Office of Academic Affairs fosters academic excellence and opportunity, and oversees academic support services for students. The offices of advising, undergraduate research, honors, international education, student-designed majors, the Connors Writing Center, and others fall under the umbrella of academic affairs. So too do the rules, rights, and responsibilities governing the conduct of UNH students.
