Academic Affairs

The Division of Academic Affairs concentrates on student success and faculty support while providing leadership and assistance to the 23 CSU campuses. A high-quality educational experience for California’s diverse student body taught and assisted by skilled faculty and staff is the division’s aim.

Serving our 447,000 students and 45,000 faculty and staff, Academic Affairs is committed to excellent teaching and learning and providing students with research opportunities that will expand their knowledge base and generate innovative discoveries and ideas contributing to California’s economy, culture and society.

Academic Affairs concurrently focuses on student services, community engagement, academic programs, special projects and academic technology. We work with the campuses, other Chancellor's Office divisions, the Board of Trustees, other educational segments, and state agencies to respond to the educational needs of our students and challenges facing the system and state.

We respond quickly and creatively to the unique needs of individual campuses. By working cooperatively with all its campus partners, the Division of Academic Affairs helps CSU campuses provides students with countless opportunities to achieve their current and future educational and career goals.
