The Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs' Vision and Values

Academic Affairs is committed to providing our students with a meaningful, outstanding academic and campus experience.   A quality education that fosters a climate of learning within an inclusive collaborative environment is our expectation.    

Academic Affairs supports the University strategic goals through our focus on being student centered, faculty and staff-focused, and community minded.  We are purposeful in our actions to further the University’s core focus to “extend faculty and academic excellence and diversity, “enhance the quality of the student experience”, strengthen community engagement”, “develop an excellent and diverse staff”, and “develop a campus culture with a sense of community and a commitment to organizational excellence” (CSUB Strategic Goals). 

Academic Affairs will continue to work to ensure the success of faculty, students, and staff and to foster a university-wide climate of learning what we don’t know, sharing what we do know, and collaboration to enhance learning for all. Our mission is to provide the strategic vision, leadership, and support necessary for academic success.
