The vice chancellor for academic affairs and dean works with division chairs and departmental directors to:
- Administer, organize, and develop the academic and instructional programs and services of the campus
- Create and sustain an environment that advances student success and serves diverse constituencies
- Makes recommendations to the chancellor for the conferring of tenure and granting of faculty promotions
The VCAA/dean ranks next to the chancellor in campus leadership and acts on the chancellor’s behalf in the chancellor’s absence.
