The Office of Academic Affairs seeks to provide unique and innovative opportunities for students to foster learning beyond the classroom- through mentorship and leadership programs, enriching and intellectual events, and providing a space for student representation in administrative settings. As Vice President, I aim to ensure that student voices are represented regarding educational quality and policies to directors and academic deans. Importance will be placed on effectively adapting to student attitudes, opinions and grievances; as they change from year to year, so must the office to reflect the student body.

Working towards a collective consciousness is the focus for my office. I intend to bring it back to what the constitution and ASUCI By-Laws outline as our purpose and ensure that every commission works towards this with what they do. I plan to adjust commissions to carry out the goals of the office.
