It is my privilege to serve as the dean for a college whose primary function is to ensure the success of all students who are admitted to our university. From a student’s first day on campus until the day that student graduates, University College stands ready to assist and support.

University College serves as a portal of entry for all students. The college is responsible for unifying retention efforts across the campus, for developing and implementing initiatives to enhance students’ first-year experiences and for coordinating various interdisciplinary academic programs.

University College coordinates academic advising for all first-time freshmen regardless of their intended major. Students receive advising through University College until they are accepted into their majors, at which time they will receive faculty advising in the major department.

We in University College treat academic advising as one of the foundations for student achievement and as an essential element of the first-year experience. First-year advisors are therefore trained to help students develop a greater sense of responsibility for their academic progress.
