Division of
Academic Affairs

Purpose Statement

The Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs is responsible for planning, developing, and implementing the overall academic vision and goals for Savannah State University by providing resources and coordinating the special contributions of diverse organizational units and personnel from a student centered approach.

Implementation of Purpose

We carry out our mission and purpose through four colleges and other support offices: the College of Business Administration, the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, the College of Sciences and Technology and the School of Teacher Education; the University Library, the Office of the Registrar, the Office of Graduate Studies, the Center for Academic Success, the Office of Sponsored Research Administration, the office of Institutional Research, Planning and Assessment, the office of International Education, the office of the QEP (Quality Enhancement Plan) and the Campus Radio Station (WHCJ 90.3 FM).

The Division of Academic Affairs provides the umbrella for each of the units. A "value added" education, resulting from classroom interactions, co-curricular activities, quality instruction, internships, practicum, research, and the infusing of technology into the curriculum is the expected outcome. We seek to make the academic enterprise relevant in order to address real world issues and problems. The goal is to provide a quality educational experience that develops life skills and prepares students for competition in the local, state, regional, and international market places. We operate from a student-centered approach with high expectations and accountability on the part of faculty, staff, administrators, and students.

Dr. Kimberly Sinclair Holmes, Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
