Undergraduate Studies

Undergraduate studies, a division of the Office of Academic Affairs, offers programs that enrich the academic life of undergraduate students in all majors and preprofessional programs. Under the leadership of the vice provost for undergraduate studies, the division promotes

  • a campus culture of intellectual curiosity and engagement
  • opportunities for students at all levels to be creative and to work in close association with outstanding faculty members
  • a coherent approach to general education

The central responsibility of the division is to introduce students to the university and the world of ideas, supporting those who are curious and intellectually vigorous regardless of their cultural background or socioeconomic circumstances.
