Academic and Student Affairs

Committed to Student Success

The College of Education’s Academic & Student Affairs office is committed to helping all students within our college community achieve academically and professionally.

Our department’s mission statement is to: deliver inclusive, responsive, and creative services that empower the entire CED community to support student success throughout the academic journey.

As a part of that mission, we have compiled a series of resources within the college and across the university for prospective and current graduate students. (Interested in resources for undergraduate students? Check out the Student Affairs Office website.)

Below, you will find links for the most common services and information that graduate students seek out across the college’s academic programs, including information about student funding, graduate forms, diversity and inclusion, and technology use.

Message from the Associate Dean

Welcome to the College of Education’s Academic and Student Affairs Unit. We are united by our deep dedication to the success of our students and a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.
Our team includes advisors who support students in three undergraduate majors and one undergraduate minor; staff who work with graduate programs to support progress to degree and oversee multiple opportunities for funding; and data analysts who ensure that we comply with external reporting obligations and help us to leverage student data in support of inclusive excellence and program improvement. We also are the home for college-wide programs such as the MA in Education (MAED) and the Educational Studies Minor.
From undergraduate majors and minors through to doctoral students, we want this College to be a place where everyone can thrive.
