Dr. Claudia V. Schrader, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost
The Office of Academic Affairs provides leadership for all of the College’s academic programs, with particular emphasis on curriculum and faculty development and student success. Working in close partnership with the BCC faculty and other college units, this office helps students reach their post-BCC goals, whether they plan to transfer to a four-year college or pursue a career in their chosen field. Among Academic Affairs’ educational initiatives are the First Year Program with a bold new approach to preparing first year students for success in their academic journey at the College; the ASAP program, which enables students to graduate at an accelerated pace; and Success Coaches who assist students with course and educational planning, registration and academic counseling. The Office is committed to ensuring that the education students receive provides them with the foundation and tools for success in their educational and/or professional plans and instills in them the value of informed and engaged citizenship and service to their communities.
