Committee Description

The Martin Administration will work to create an academic atmosphere that takes into account the learning preferences of all students and caters toward students’ needs. Academic Affairs will continue to work on the projects they have started in the past and seek new ways to advocate for students on the front-end. By continuing to push the envelope, the Martin administration will create policies that are equitable, supportive, and student-centered.

Committee Goals for the 2019-2020 Academic Year

  • Improve the class registration process for transfer students
