Students will find themselves embraced by a supportive community that values the best
that higher learning has to offer, a community that appreciates diverse people and
ideas, a community that stands up with courage for everyone’s freedom to speak, think
and write. The high academic and social quality of the student experience is enhanced by the stunning
natural beauty of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains. Our beautiful region
also motivates our commitment to environmental sustainability.
Academic Affairs is the administrative division that builds our college commitment to student success
through the curriculum and the classroom, through excellent teaching, and through
scholarly research. This work is supported by our Center for Teaching Excellence,
our Honors Program, our Institute for Ethics in Public Life, and our Center for the
Study of Canada. Further support is provided in Academic Affairs by the library with
its information and technology support, the office of Academic Advising, and by our
Learning Center. Our commitment includes fostering student preparation for the workplace
or graduate school and for life-long learning.
As the provost and VP for academic affairs, I am deeply committed to an academic learning
environment where quality teaching and research by faculty engage deep learning. I
believe that the success of students is our success.
