The Office of Academic Affairs administers a broad range of operations related to the support of the instructional units at each college. Led by Mike Krall, Associate Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, staff members oversee operations, programs, and initiatives in support of the completion and success of our future and current students through academic planning, curriculum development, compliance, academic policy development, and college preparation.
