Academic Affairs Leadership

Our academic affairs leadership is made up of the deans of the three colleges and all serve on the President’s Cabinet. We are principal administrators: Dean Gail Mears, Dean Robyn Parker, and Dean Cynthia Vascak. Click here to see which business units work with us.

Our goals are to:

  1. Enhance services and support to students and families, faculty, staff, and community
  2. Build the foundation for our new integrated clusters vision
  3. Provide academic excellence inside our courses and beyond
  4. Engage more fully with student affairs so that we understand our changing student needs

Please stop by and visit us on the third floor of Speare rooms 304 & 303. You will see that we have integrated our office suites with student affairs.
