About the Office of Academic Affairs

The Division of Academic Affairs is committed to ensuring that students receive an academically rich multicultural learning experience through providing direction and support services to Deans, University Librarian, department chairs and faculty.  To achieve this goal, Academic Affairs collaborates with the Academic Senate when appropriate.

Specific areas in which support is provided are faculty and administrative searches; faculty appointments, evaluation, discipline, leaves and separations; faculty development and department chair development; Unit 3 and Unit 11 contract issues and grievances; academic policy information and interpretation; academic budgetary resources and faculty salary information; grants and contract proposals; curricular proposals, accreditation and transfer articulation issues; general education program; library and student academic support; on-line and hybrid course development; international programs, admissions and visas; certificate and extension programs; academic programs and graduate studies at Hayward, Concord and On-line campuses.
