Mission Statement: 

The Office of Academic Affairs creates opportunities for students to involve themselves academically outside of the classroom, through engaging speakers, interactive events with professors, leadership classes, mentorship programs and staff council meetings. This office seeks to cultivate student leadership and empower students to be advocates of the academic life at UC Irvine.

4th Year|Biological Sciences Major

Hi fellow Anteaters! My name is Leila Danishgar and I will be serving as your Vice President of Academic Affairs this year. I’m a fourth year Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major, on the path of pursuing medicine. My love for academia, student advocacy and UC Irvine itself has shaped me into the person I am today. The Office of Academic Affairs consists of 5 unique commissions that target many important aspects of what a quality University should have: leadership, mentorship, advocacy, representation and engagement. These are only some factors that I thrive on, and that I hope to improve within my term. I am honored to be your Vice President and promise to run a successful office and make legendary change.
