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, student success and evening and weekend classes. Working in close partnership with the BCC faculty, 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: study abroad, in places as diverse as China and South Africa; the ASAP program, which enables students to graduate at an accelerated pace; and the Freshman Year Seminar, a bold new approach to preparing first year students for academic success. Such innovative tools inspire our scholars to think critically, communicate persuasively and act ethically and creatively in a competitive world.
