Understanding the college
Everything we do comes back to Research, Education and Culture.
Associate Deans guide the research and teaching enterprises. Various administrative units handle academic-adjacent student services and the college’s business operations. They all work in support of the college’s Strategic Vision and its academic departments, research labs and facilities – where the teaching and research happen. And of course they all report to the Dean.
