Academic Affairs

The Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs is the academic nerve-center of California State University, East Bay.  Reporting to Provost Edward Inch are the four colleges, the Concord Campus, University Extension, the Libraries, Research and Sponsored Programs, the Academic Senate, Academic Programs and Graduate Studies, undergraduate Studies, General Education and Faculty and Student Support Services.

The Office of the Provost is responsible for ensuring the quality of our students' education and that our faculty and staff have the tools they need to create a successful learning experience.  Major initiatives in Academic Affairs include: enhancing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education; assisting students to graduate in a timely manner; and performing outreach that lifts our community toward educational quality.

Academic Affairs is committed to Executive Order 1064 by establishing a roadmap for students, faculty/ staff, and internship sites.  An internship formally integrates the student’s academic study with practical experience at a cooperating organization (internship site). It is an off-campus activity designed to serve educational purposes by offering experience in a service learning, business, non-profit, or government setting. For the purpose of this executive order “internship” does not include teacher preparation placements or clinical placements such as for nursing, counseling, physical therapy or occupational therapy.
