Curriculum and Instruction Office

 

Mission and Outcomes

The mission of the Office of Curriculum and Instruction is to support the faculty and assist the Provost with a range of academic issues including instruction, advising, and transfer.  The Assistant Provost for Curriculum and Instruction (APCI) provides leadership for faculty, department chairs, college deans, and administrators in the development and assessment of VU courses at all sites.  The APCI oversees the work of the Registrar as well as the production of the catalog and schedule, with additional oversight of the UCC/General Education Committee, Academic Advising, Student Success Center, the Summer Bridge Program, and the Honors Program.  This Office maintains University curriculum records, coordinates the development of articulation agreements, and serves as VU liaison to the Commission for Higher Education regarding Statewide Transfer and Articulation Committee, the CTL Subcommittee, and Single Articulation Pathways Leadership panel.

 

The APCI and staff members of the Office of Curriculum and Instruction will:

  • Develop VU courses and course delivery in conjunction with faculty.
  • Facilitate assessment of student learning, particularly general education courses at VU.
  • Train personnel for academic advising and support advising efforts system-wide.
  • Coordinate efforts system-wide for student success, from initial advising through grad audit and transfer.
  • Support and initiate articulation agreements.
  • Participate in statewide efforts, including but not limited to ICHE, to promote student success through persistence, completion, and transfer as VU students seek educational credentials on their pathways to meaningful careers.
