Our mission:

Undergraduate Education advocates for diverse educational experiences that promote inclusive learning. Ultimately, we serve students by aligning resources with opportunities to foster curiosity, engaged citizenship and academic success. We work collaboratively with faculty, staff, and students to achieve these goals.

Our priorities:

  1. Increase academic success for all students, thereby closing persistence and achievement gaps; and
  2. Cultivate undergraduate students who have discovered and developed their unique talents, and, as a result, can tackle their generation's most pressing challenges.
