The Academic Affairs Management Team is charged with fulfilling the overall mission of the university, particularly as it relates to academic programs, student affairs and academic support, academic quality, and faculty governance.


The Academic Affairs Management Team derives its authority from the Provost. It functions as a team of advisers to the Provost about policy and program matters.


The Academic Affairs Management Team consists of the Provost, the Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion, the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Sciences, and Technologies; Dean of the Graduate School and Professional Programs, Dean of Student Affairs and Academic Support, the Executive Director of the Office of Academic Quality, and the University Registrar.

The University Faculty Senate annually appoints one of its Senators as the faculty representative to AAMT. The Interim Chief Enrollment Management Officer and the Chief Information Officer have standing invitations to attend AAMT meetings.

The Special Assistant to the Provost coordinates AAMT operations and meetings. The Academic Affairs Budget Director serves as a resource person.
