Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies

Our programs work together to advance the academic mission of the University of Kansas. We support the intellectual engagement and pursuit of learning by all KU students throughout their undergraduate education, from orientation through graduation.

As students develop their educational goals and career interests, we provide guidance and academic support, including advising, tutoring, and writing consultation, and we ensure an accessible learning environment.  We encourage and facilitate participation in the experiential learning opportunities that are an integral component of a well-rounded undergraduate education, such as undergraduate research, internships, and service learning, and we contribute to the Experiential Learning Collaborative, a work group devoted to developing, expanding, and promoting experiential learning at KU.  We partner with the Libraries and KU Information Technology in the Learning Studio, a dynamic student-oriented space in Anschutz Library where students can study, conduct research, and access academic support services.  Working with departments throughout the university, we are helping to implement the KU Core, which establishes new university-wide educational goals and learning outcomes.

As part of Academic Affairs, within the Office of the Provost, we serve the university as a whole, coordinating with faculty, staff, and students throughout KU to further educational initiatives and strategic goals.

Our programs include:
