Division of Academic Affairs
Academic Affairs creates and administers a structure in which steps can be taken to execute our university’s mission and vision. In these efforts, we oversee the development and implementation of academic policies and procedures, and we coordinate academic programs, administration and organizational structures.
We are deeply engaged in developing a strong yet flexible infrastructure that will support a wide range of scholarly activities and community partnerships. We work hard to strengthen connections among UW Bothell's academic schools and programs, as well as between the campus, other educational institutions, organizations and the greater community.
Academic Affairs is headed by the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, who collaborates closely with the Chancellor and the General Faculty Organization (GFO).
Academic leadership team
Led by the VC for Academic Affairs, the UW Bothell academic leadership team includes the five academic Deans and Directors, as well as the director of First Year and Pre-Major (lower-division program); the GFO chair and vice-chair; the assistant vice chancellors of Enrollment Management and Information Technologies; and the directors of Library and Academic Services, Institutional Research and the Teaching and Learning Center. This team meets regularly as the Academic Council, which serves as a forum for shaping a wide range of academic policies, procedures, and new initiatives.
