Office of Academic Affairs

The Office of Academic Affairs strengthens the campus community by promoting the academic mission, supporting faculty and students, encouraging research and scholarly activities, and enhancing teaching and learning.

The mission of Academic Affairs is to create and maintain a supportive environment that promotes the University’s academic endeavors in undergraduate, graduate, and professional education. The unit supports and encourages excellence in teaching, scholarly activity, and service. We are committed to providing the highest quality undergraduate and graduate education in the state and region, and achieving national and international prominence in the professional optometry program.

  • Academic degree programs (undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs).
  • Academic support services.
  • Outreach.

The academic degree programs are contained within four undergraduate colleges, a graduate college, a college of extended learning, and the professional Oklahoma College of Optometry. Academic support services include Center for Teaching and Learning, Enrollment Management, International Studies, Library Services, and Research and Sponsored Programs. Outreach activities include Northeastern State University-Muskogee, NSU-Broken Arrow, Weekend College, Continuing Studies, Center for Study of Literacy, Center for Tribal Studies, and Center for Regional and International Partnerships.
