Academic Affairs encompasses services to faculty, staff, academic administrators, and councils; all of who share a commitment to bring Goddard’s unique learning experience to students.
The mission of the Academic Affairs Office is to support faculty and staff in actualizing and maintaining a high quality learning experience for Goddard students as their programs engage the College’s mission and strategic goals. The Academic Affairs office is responsible for the College’s academic policies and procedures; institutional accreditation and accountability; program reviews; academic personnel (evaluations, appointments, and reappointments); student learning outcomes and assessments processes; supporting new academic initiatives; curricular development, program and college Institutional Research Boards; special academic projects; residency planning and publication of schedules; student academic resources (including handbooks and program addenda); and development and publication of the academic calendar.
The Academic Affairs Office collaborates with the Registrar’s Office, the Library to promote information literacy, and WGDR/WGDH community radio station to engage the local high school students in a new dual enrollment program.
The Chief Academic Officer and Dean is a core participant in the College’s budget development and strategic planning. The CAO/Dean collaborates closely with Program Directors and Faculty Council in a broad array of academic policy and strategic planning issues.
