Welcome to the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies
Undergraduate Studies, a division of Academic Affairs, is headed by the Dean of Undergraduate Studies who reports directly to the University Provost and Chief Academic Officer. Its mission is to assure that Florida Atlantic University provides baccalaureate degree programs which are of the highest academic quality irrespective of their location or method of delivery within the distributed campus structure of FAU. This is achieved through participation in the planning, implementation, review and periodic revision of those programs which include the general education curriculum, and discipline-specific majors.
Advancement of this mission is supported by a number of ancillary academic services which, under the supervision of the dean, make major contributions to the enhancement of the undergraduate experience. They include: Freshman Academic Advising Services; Center for Teaching and Learning (encompassing the Center for Learning And Student Success, Math Learning Center, the Director for the Scholarship of Teaching, the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Director, the University Center for Excellence in Writing, and Writing Across the Curriculum Program); Office of International Programs; Student-Athlete Center for Academic Excellence; Testing and Evaluation; and the University Honors Program.
Through these combined efforts, Undergraduate Studies contributes to the fulfillment of the University mission which is, in part, “…to serve its region, state and nation by preparing students to make meaningful contributions to an increasingly complex global society.”
