The Office of 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 three colleges and other support offices: Business, Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and Science and Technology; the University Library, the Office of Enrollment Management, the Office of ACCESS Programs, the Office of Graduate Studies and Sponsored Research, the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Academic Support, and the Campus Radio Station.
The Office 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.
