Academic Affairs

Academic Affairs is composed of six colleges and a broad array of offices that provide services and support to the University. The colleges are comprised of more than 75 schools and departments offering more than 200 academic programs, majors, minors, concentrations, and credential and certificate programs. All these areas work together to foster an environment that promotes high-quality teaching and learning in an urban context of significant demographic diversity.

Jennifer Summit, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

She was previously at Stanford University from 1995 - 2013, where she was a professor of English and served in multiple administrative and leadership capacities. Summit was Stanford's director of integrated learning, the chair of the Committee for the Review of the Undergraduate Major and the chair of the University Writing and Oral Communication Requirements Revision. She also served for three years as the chair of the department of English at Stanford, and co-founded and directed the university's Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies. In 2012, she served as an American Council on Education Fellow at San Jose State University, where she led the Provost's Task Force on Student Engagement.

A widely-published scholar of medieval and early modern English Literature, Dr. Summit has received major fellowships and awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Modern Language Association.
